Sacha Inchi (Plukenetia volubilis) is a plant native to the area surrounding the Amazon River that 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% non-GMO plant-based protein and a rich profile of essential and non-essential amino acids.
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.
