Peru 2016 – Cyndi enjoying this native, nutritious snack while trekking

Inca Inchi is also known as Sacha Inchi and has been called one of nature’s most impressive superfoods.  Indigenous people from the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest only knew that its name was inca inchi, which means ‘Almond of the Inca’ (this information comes direct from the manufacturers in the Amazon). The real historical name of the product is Inca Inchi.

The Inca Inchi plant “Plukenetia Volúbilis Linneo” is indigenous to the Peruvian Amazon Forest and produces small seeds that are extremely rich in high quality, nutritious oils and protein.

The Inca Inchi plant is a small one with small hermaphrodite flowers producing small pods (green at first and brown when ripe) which usually has 6 lobes. Each lobe contains a seed of 15 to 20 mm width with an average weight of 1 gram.  Inca inchi seeds are rich in nutrients and essential fatty acids, much more than other oilseed plants known.

Our supplier follows the Bio Trade principles, working with the local grower to ensure sustainability, fair trade and helping to develop and maintain a high standard crop. 

The Inca Inchi seed is a complete source of protein and contains essential fatty acids and dietary fibre, making it a great snack. 

We like to keep things simple, which is why the Inca Inchi seed has only been roasted and seasoned with sea salt.  No additives, preservatives, flavours or added oils.

100% organic Inca Inchi Seeds and natural sea salt.

Inca inchi oil represents a source of precursor of Omega 3 (ALA) (with an appropriate combination of Omega 6 and 9). It allows humans to metabolise their own DHA, EPA & GLA and many more ‘non-famous’ Mmega 3 derivatives. This makes Inca Inchi seeds a wonderful natural source of essential fatty acids and can be a great inclusion to the diet for vegans and vegetarians.

The two essential fatty acids Alpha Linolenic Acid and Linoleic Acid Omega-3, and Omega-6 help to form the nerve tissue (myelination), eye tissue and the structure of cell membranes. These fatty acids are also involved in other important functions in a direct way such as the regulation of blood pressure and immune functions. They are also the precursors for DHA, EPA & GLA.

The Inca Inchi seed is one of the most highly digestible, low-irritant, high quality proteins and thus has become one of nature’s superfoods! It contains all the essential amino acids which are the building blocks for the human body and each amino acid has different uses. It is hard to find a plant source with all the essential amino acids.

Inca Inchi seeds are also a good source of fibre which feeds the good bacteria in the intestine. This is important as it keeps your microbiome well fed which is necessary for our health. Fibre consumption increases fullness and slows down the absorption of food.

Omega 3 – Alpha Linolenic 23%

Omega 6 – Linoleic 17%

Omega 9 – Oleic 5%

    These seeds are very addictive. When I tried the first one I wasn’t sure about the taste but after that it was hard to stop eating them. I then portioned them out after that to stop myself overeating them.

    I wasn’t too sure about these seeds at first, but truth is they become addictive fast!! Husband loves them too because they make a great substitute for beer nuts/salted mix.

    These little salted nuts were a pleasant surprise. Great to snack on between meals and know you are getting some protein too. A little coconut oil taste which I dont mind. Thank you for sourcing these nutritious products for us.

    A great peanut replacement (especially when eaten with cashews as they add sweetness) and a nifty way to get more EFAs into the diet, thanks Cyndi for finding such a cool food and making it available to us xxx
