Sacha Inchi Seeds
Haven't heard of them? I hadn't either before the fine folks at SaviSeed were kind enough to send me some samples. Considering how much time I spend prowling around the crunchy-granola-global-whole-foods-bulk-bin store, I'm surprised I haven't seen these before. But now that my eyes have been opened to the munch-liciousness, I'm going to pick them up on a regular basis. If your store doesn't yet carry these, ask. Yes, they're worth being "that guy" and making a special request. Why I think SaviSeeds are that good:
- They have 13 times more Omega-3 than wild salmon (7000 mg per 1 oz serving) and contain complete plant-based protein (8 grams per ounce).
- They are certified organic, fairly traded, and sustainably produced.
- A one-ounce serving contains 5 grams of fiber and has about 160 calories.
- They contain vitamin E and tryptophan.
- They're also nut- and gluten-free (which, I have a hunch, some of you might find very appealing).

They come in three flavors, Cocoa Kissed (enrobed in 70% cocoa), Karmalized (coated in raw sugar cane), and Oh Natural (dusted with sea salt) ~ my personal favorite. Yum.
Check them out, and let your kids check them out. If your local healthy foods type store doesn't carry them yet, lay on a pouty lip and ask nicely. In the meantime, you can buy them online.
Interesting! Thanks for the info.ReplyDelete
Damn I'm gonna buy either these ones or TerrAmazon. That thing is dynamite of nutritions!!!ReplyDelete
More Omega 3 than a wild salmon ? High in protein and anti-oxidants .. why are these so unknown ? I have to try these out!ReplyDelete
I have actually seen these "seeds" at my local grocery but the fear of trying anything new kept me away. Thanks for the personal invitiation to try them by way of your ringing endorsement...ReplyDelete
I've had these and I like them! They will be a regular part of my food purchases now. They kind of taste like a peanut, but then again, not really. Hard to describe as they don't taste like anything else I've had.ReplyDelete
This is really great information, Thanks foe Sharing. These Sacha seeds are very good for Health.ReplyDelete
Seeds are easy to eat, not much taste, just a hint of alfalfa sprout flavor. Chocolate SaviSeed have too much chocolate, more like candy. Caramelized are good but still like candy. I buy the Peruvian Inca Inchi oil and pour it on everything.ReplyDelete
Love that it's high in omega3.ReplyDelete
High in Omega 3 is great but what kind of Omega oil is important to ask. ALA, DHA, or EPA omega oil are all different and plant based sources are almost always ALA which the body only partially converts into the latter two more effective forms.ReplyDelete
Hi, sorry for the late reply. Greetings from Lima, Peru.ReplyDelete
I have a question: is it possible to soak these sachi inchi in order to release more nutrients, like you can do with almonds, sesame seeds, etc? I can't seem to find any information about this, anywhere.
Thank you very much to anyone with an answer to this one.
Good question! I'm sorry but I'm afraid I don't know the answer. Hopefully someone else here does ~ I'd like to know too!
Thanks for stopping by!
