History

Sacha Inchi, also know as the “Inca Peanut”, is a plant native to the Amazon in South America and produces a unique seed that is rich in Omega-3, 6 and 9.

The plant was originally cultivated by the Incas and is depicted on pottery found buried in Inca and pre-Inca tombs.

Natives in the region have known about Sacha Inchi for thousands of years and it has been a carefully guarded part of the Peruvian food chain for centuries.

Sacha Inchi Oil comes from the seeds which contain from 49% to 54% in oils. These fruits are about 35% skin/peel, and 65% dark brown nut. The fruits are star shaped, slightly enlarged in the center and taper towards the edges.

The Sacha Inchi is one of the few Amazonian plants with a continuous production of fruits. Its lifespan is over 10 years thus proving a reliable source of income for the Amazonian growers.

Almost two-thirds of Peru consists of tropical lowlands, the western edge of the immense Amazon basin, and Sacha inchi is one of the crops the Peruvian government's Pro Amazonía program is trying to develop in the region.
