Botanical Name: Plukenetia volubilis
Protein Rich Superfood Powder
Sacha Inchi is a small oilseed that is found inside the fruit of the Plukenetia Volubilis, a native plant to the Peruvian highlands. It is a shrub-like, measuring up to two metres in height, flourishing at great altitudes and rainy weather. It produces little star-shaped fruit capsules that turn from green to a darkish brown colour upon maturing.
In the inside, we find a few shells that are opened to obtain small seeds. These go through a sun drying to be ready to be eaten. Sacha Inchi can be consumed as an oil (cold pressed), as powder (extruded then ground), or simply in the nut form.
Sacha inchi has two mayor nutritional values: its high oleic quality and its elevated protein content: Omega 3, 6 and 9 are present in abundance, there is a low proportion of saturated fats and a near total composition of unsaturated fats. It is rich in vitamins A and E.
Protein is found in about 65% in sacha inchi powder. It contains both essential and non-essential amino acids and it is highly digestible.
