Sacha Inchi (Plukenetia volubilis) is a highland, Incan Superseed that is very high in essential fatty acids Omega 3-6-9 and protein. It has been a traditional food source for the people of the Amazon rainforest because of its highly energizing nutritional content.
The high digestibility makes it easy on the stomach and the versatile, nutty flavor makes it a staple ingredient to add to your longevity pantry. It has a similar flavor to peanut, just slightly lighter. You can easily use it in recipes that call for creamy ingredients. It would also be the perfect base ingredient for a Superfood peanut butter.
Sacha Inchi is perfect for individuals looking for a plant based source of omega fatty acids and protein. Its nutritional properties are very similar to Hemp seed and is an excellent alternative to Hemp.
Superfood tip: Make your own Superfood peanut butter by mixing Sacha Inchi, coconut oil, and Matcha.
