- Sacha Inchi also known as 'Inca Inchi' or the 'Inca Peanut', is one of nature’s most amazing and nutritious foods. The Sacha Inchi plant (Plukenetia volubilis) grows sustainably in one of nature’s wonderlands, the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest, and provides income for indigenous Indian tribes.
Our Organic Sacha Inchi Powder is composed of the de-fatted seed once it has been cold-pressed to produce Sacha Inchi omega-3 oil. It is a premium source of plant-based protein due to its high digestability (99%), which sets it apart from other vegetarian protein sources. In addition, Sacha Inchi powder contains all the essential amino acids and retains a content of beneficial, anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids.
Add 1-2 tablespoons to your favourite smoothie to boost the protein content naturally. Incorporate into baking, pancakes, casseroles, omelettes, soups and bread.
- Sacha Inchi is an incredible, natural, chemical-free source of protein, nutrients and omegas. It is ideal for athletes, vegetarians, vegans and all health conscious individuals and is possibly the most potent non-animal food known to man. Of all the plant-based proteins known, the proteins and nutrients in Sacha Inchi are the easiest to digest. This means your body gets the benefits quickly and easily - with maximum absorption and assimilation.
Matakana SuperFoods is a New Zealand-based leader in the research and marketing of new and novel foods with unique qualities and super nutrients to support health and well-being. Their goal is to bring to the market the latest high-quality, super-nutrient functional foods, snack foods and cosmetics.
While extracts of various foods have been used in supplements for many years, a new movement away from supplements and towards whole Superfoods has arisen, and promises to offer greater benefits to health through the premise that the synergistic interaction of the nutrients gained from natural wholefoods has more to offer than one or two components being extracted and put into a tablet. Often the balance, ratio and type of nutrients found in wholefoods leads to superior assimilation and absorption by the body. There is a renewed belief that eating wholefoods (and particularly wholefoods with super-nutrient qualities) is of greater benefit than simple supplementation with individual extracts.
