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.

“Umm, seriously? I placed an order on Tuesday and it arrived on Thursday? I mean, I wasn't emotionally ready for it. And then you have the audacity to email me that it was delivered! The nerve of you people. In all seriousness, I am so excited to experiment with the chia seeds and taste the Turkish figs. Yumm! I will definitely be a returning customer. ”

I love the selection I keep finding new things to try and I'm having way to much fun trying new things! My cubbards are full of nuts online packages. I must admit I'm addicted.”

“I am a new Nutty customer and so far, just wonderful!

Shopping with Nuts Online is really almost just like going into a real store and having a pleasant interaction with someone who cares a lot about customer service. I emailed with a question and got an answer right away. I emailed with a comment in response, and again got a response. It really is like going to a friendly store and I like that!

My wonderful products shipped and appeared instantly, which was great.

Everything is fresh and delicious. I am having a hard time rationing the crunchy cereals and the cacao and the sacha inchi, though. I could just start munching and not stop, it's all so good...!
