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.

“Love the Sachi Inchi nuts! I ordered only 5 pounds to see if I liked them...other companies salt them...I like the fact that you don't, and if needed you can add a salty nut to them. My sisters and I will continue to buy them, but in a larger quantity next time to take advantage of the $15 per pound price ( which is still high to me,) but better than $20. I love your companies' attitude! Very Nutty! I am a new customer who intends on spreading the word about you. Oh and the sample of the cacao Goji energy squares were great...I make little date squares for my elderly parents that are similar...only I dust them in Cocao”
