With a content of omega-3 (alpha linoleic acid) equal to 47.9%, 34.95% in omega-6 (linoleic acid) and 9.36% in omega-9 (oleic acid), Sacha Inchi is the edible oil with the highest content of essential, polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are vital for the human organism*.
As the body is not able to produce these itself, they must be assimilated from food. They have a positive effect on the blood serum lipids and considerably reduce the harmful LDL cholesterol.
Sacha Inchi also contains vitamins A and E and has an iodine level of 192. The oil's positive health effects are corroborated by current scientific research.
The oil meets the requirements of today's food-conscious consumer in all respects. The Sacha Inchi nut is naturally gluten-free; by using this product in carefully controlled, hygienic manufacturing processes, this condition remains unchanged. As in ancient times, it grows in a totally uncontaminated environment in the Amazon Forest. It is totally vegan and does without the use of genetic engineering, and is thus naturally 100% organic.
