NutriScience Innovations is pleased to announce its newest functional specialty ingredient – Sacha Inchi – plant based oil & protein powder.

Sacha Inchi (Plukenetia volubilis) is a plant native to the area surrounding the Amazon River. It produces a star-shaped fruit. Sacha Inchi is an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as Omega-6 fatty acids, Omega-9 fatty acids, and protein.

Sacha Inchi also contains Vitamins A & E and is considered by many to be “superfood” due to its excellent nutritional profile. Sacha Inchi Oil is ideal for vegetarians and those who are not consuming sufficient omega-rich fish and vegetables in their diets. Sacha Inchi Oil offers similar benefits to omega-rich fish oil but without the strong fish odor or taste. Sacha Inchi Protein Powder provides many of the same benefits as oil (Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9, Vitamins A & E).

NutriScience’s Sacha Inchi Protein Powder is highly digestible and is a great solution for sports supplement products, providing 55-65% plant-based protein and a rich profile of essential and non-essential amino acids. “NutriScience is excited to introduce this new, Non-GMO, plant-derived oil and protein powder, with a rich profile of nutritional benefits for the dietary and sports/performance industries”, says Ryan Pallathra, Director of Business Development of NutriScience Innovations.

Applications for NutriScience’s Sachi Inchi oil and protein powder include: dietary supplements, sports supplements, functional foods, cosmetics & personal care products. Sacha Inchi Oil can also be used in the cosmetics applications, acting as a binding and lathering agent in soap. It helps to moisturize and protect the skin and provides a soft-glossy look to hair.
