The Amazon is full of an amazing, diverse assortment of flora. Among that diverse assortment is Sacha Ichi, a climbing shrub most commonly found in Peru. While the indigenous people of Peru have been eating sacha inchi seeds for years, the benefits of this amazing plant are only now being realized by the rest of the world. Each vine can produce hundreds of Sacha Inchi fruit at a time, and each fruit will have an average of 4-7 seeds in it, meaning that that there are hundreds and hundreds of high-quality Sacha Inchi seeds per vine every year. Sacha Inchi itself can be enjoyed as just the seed, as an oil, or as the Sacha Inchi Powder you see here. With a flavor similar to that of peanuts, it provides a wonderful, vegan protein source packed with nutritional density.

Nutrition Information

Cholesterol Free: Often, protein and cholesterol go hand-in-hand with one another, with high-protein sources like eggs simultaneously packed with cholesterol. Unfortunately, while most of us want a protein-dense diet, we don’t necessarily want a diet that’s equally cholesterol-dense—not when high levels of cholesterol in the diet are shown to be associated with the build-up of fat in arteries and can increase risks for heart attacks, strokes, and pulmonary embolisms. Adding cholesterol-free protein sources to your diet can help you cut down on your overall cholesterol while remaining satiated and healthy.

High Fiber: Dietary fiber is an important component to any healthy diet because it encourages your body’s digestive system, ensuring that waste is eliminated from your body in an efficient manner while also prompting your body to make use of the good nutrients you’re providing it. If you suffer from chronic bloating or constipation, you’ll especially want to increase the dietary fiber in your diet.

High Protein: Protein is what your body uses to grow and repair tissues, from your hair all the way to your heart. Every system in your body relies on protein to keep it working at its maximum potential. One of the best things about Sacha Inchi powder is that it provides a unique, 100% vegan protein source. Since many of the most common protein sources are animal-based, finding more, varied plant-based protein sources is always a great idea.

Omega-3s: Omega-3s are a fatty oil most commonly found in fish. They’re often encouraged because they are important for preventing heart disease. They have also been used to fight mood disorders like depression and anxiety, and during pregnancy they are encouraged to be eaten by the mother to help the infant’s brain develop. Sacha Inchi is rich in Omega 3s, and is one of the few non-fish-based Omega 3 sources available.

Also known as the Inca peanut, sachi inchi is the seeds of a plant native to Peru. When harvested and roasted, sacha inchi has a nice, nutty flavor, and provides a healthy dose of protein, fiber and healthy fatty acids. It’s the perfect way to add an extra dose of vegan protein to your smoothies! Hemp seed doubles the serving of healthy fatty acids, and apple doubles the fiber. Top it all off with a nice dose of vitamin C from pineapple and kale, and you have a delicious, nutritiously balanced meal replacement.
