Our beloved grandfather, Poppy Sol, started this business in an open-air market. Three generations later, we’re still bringing smiles to our customers' faces.
Also known as Inca Peanuts or Inca Nuts, Sacha Inchi is touted by many as one of the best new superfoods. One of the richest sources in the world of omega fatty acids, Inca Peanuts are also loaded with protein, fiber, and antioxidants. Our Sacha Inchi is dry roasted to nutty, crunchy, perfection - truly a super food!
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 Inca Peanuts are technically seeds, not nuts. However, our Sacha Inchi seeds do have a unique, mild, nutty taste that many compare to that of a dark roasted peanut with a slight woody flavor.
Sacha Inchi's benefits for health and nutrition have been widely publicized recently, especially by medical personality Dr. Oz, who lists it as his best snack for weight loss. Medical studies have shown that Sacha Inchi's high concentration and proper balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids reduces the risk of heart disease, and its fats are largely monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. Finally, as a complete protein, Inca Peanuts contain every amino acid. Try lightly tossing in a little olive oil and sea salt to create a great taste!
Sacha Inchi: Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick
Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes that Sacha Inchi provide a complete sources of protein because they have all essential amino acids and a small handful (one ounce) has about 8 grams of protein. They add great crunch to salads or a perfect for swap from traditional nuts.

“I do not want my e-mail or location published.
Went out on a limb and purchased the Sacha Inchi nuts not having a clue what they were. I so appreciated the customer service's prompt answer to my questions. Recommend Nuts.com”

“Ordered on Monday and order arrived on Christmas. Never expected an early Christmas present. The Sacha Inchi nuts and Raw Cacao Nibs are amazing. You have a customer for life.”

“My family is blown away! As always, our shipment was prepared and shipped in a speedy manner, and your products beyond our expectations. The natural papaya, supreme chocolate covered almonds and sacha inchi seeds are among our favorites -- thank you!!! Life is so much better with such healthy snack options. We're truly impressed with the freshness of the products, and look forward to trying more items. Secretly though, we wished we held off just a week in placing this large order.. looks like we missed out on the pecan pie giveaway. No doubt, it'll be delicious as well. Thank you, Nuts.com for everything so far!”

“Well, i read your reviews, thought what the heck, give it a go, plus I couldn't find any of the stuff I needed in town. So I ordered the sachi inchi nuts to make "peanut butter balls" (and by the way, they really are close to peanut flavor) and lucuma powder to add to my coconut milk ice cream. I was expecting my order on Monday 9/16, but low and behold, it was in my mail this morning (it's Sat. 9/14) Way, way fast. Your packaging made me smile, I'm happy.
I will be back! And thank you for the little gift too. I had never tried a goji berry. They are delicious. I felt all healthy and wonderful after munching on some. You know, you really are what you eat. :)”

“Whoa, you nuts! What unexpectedly great service! Thank you so much! You'll hear from us again. I'm going on to you website now to see what else I could buy from you. Thank you!”

“In addition to finding Sacha Inchi seeds with no salt at a reasonable price, I am amazed at the turnaround time for my shipment to arrive. I ordered on one evening and received my shipment the next day by noon (with ground shipping). I will definitely be a regular customer myself as well as let all my friends know about this company. Thank you for the yummy sample as well!!! ”
