Sacha Inchi Seeds is touted by many as one of the world’s healthiest superfoods. Also known as Inca peanuts or Inca nuts, this dry roasted and unsalted snack is among the richest sources of omega fatty acids in the world. Sacha Inchi seeds are also loaded with protein, fiber and antioxidants. Our Sacha Inchi from Peru is dry roasted to nutty, crunchy perfection - truly a superfood!

What is Sacha Inchi?

Grown in the Amazon Rainforest and the high Andes Mountains of Peru, Sacha Inchi has been part of the Inca diet for 3000 years. The Sacha Inchi plant, Plukenetia volubilis, is a rainforest vine, with star-shaped seed pods, meaning that these Inca peanuts are technically seeds, not nuts.

What Does Sacha Inchi Taste Like?

Our sacha inchi seeds have a unique, mild, nutty taste that many compare to that of a dark roasted peanut with a slight woody flavor. Try tossing it in a little olive oil and sea salt to create a great taste!

These have a nice, mellow and nutty flavor. I make my own snack mix with the dry roasted edamame and spicy fava beans, which blends nicely and gives a little salt to these sacha inchi.
