SachaOmega® is produced from the highest grade organic, cold-pressed, extra virgin sacha inchi oil. This oil contains the highest content of unsaturated fatty acids on the market, with 92% composition of omega fatty acids 3, 6 and 9.

SachaOmega® has a light taste, similar to the freshly-crushed seeds of the sacha inchi plant, and compares extremely well to other vegetable oils with stronger taste – for example, olive oil. To attain a premium quality organic oil, seeds are cold-pressed in stainless steel machinery, avoiding harmful effects due to reactive metals.

Applications:

  • Nutritional Supplement: Due to the high content of omega fatty acids, SachaOmega® is the perfect supplement for people whose diet does not include fish or omega-rich vegetables in large enough quantities.
  • Food: SachaOmega® is delicious on salads or cooked vegetables due to its pleasant, slightly nutty flavor. Sacha Inchi Oil won the Médaille d’or (Gold Medal) at the AVPA Specialty Foods Commodities competition in Paris in 2007. Additionally, it can be used as an ingredient for the preparation of different blends. In order to preserve the omega-3 content of SachaOmega®, it is necessary to work with low temperatures. For this reason, SachaOmega® is not recommended for cooking.
  • Cosmetics: SachaOmega® acts as a binding medium and a lathering agent for soap. It also has a nutritional effect on the skin and helps make hair soft and glossy. As a topical moisturizer, sacha inchi oil has been used since ancient times for nourishing hair, skin and nails by strengthening the natural barriers of cell walls.
  • SachaOmega® can be combined with other ingredients when developing new products, enriching them with high omega content while simultaneously increasing their retail value.

Active Constituents:

Sacha inchi seeds are among the best-known plant sources of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids. It contains only 6% saturated fatty acids compared to its 90-93% unsaturated fatty acids. While omega-3 and omega-6 may be obtained from other vegetable sources, they do not provide a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 in the range of 1:1 to 3:1, which science concludes is necessary for a healthy life. Since SachaOmega® has a ratio of 1:1.4, one of its principal benefits is that it helps correct the imbalance between omega-3 and omega-6 intake that exists in most modern diets, which may contribute to poor health. In addition, sacha inchi is high in essential and non-essential amino acids, iodine and vitamins A and E.

Omega 3 and Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs):

Omega-3 and omega-6 are two families of essential fatty acids (EFAs). EFAs are long-chain, polyunsaturated fatty acids derived from linolenic and linoleic acids. They cannot be created in the human body and must be obtained through foods. Our body requires an ideal balance between omega 3 and 6 to maintain its correct functioning. SachaOmega® offers this ideal balance.

Sacha Inchi oil has a light taste, similar to the freshly crushed seeds of the Sacha Inchi plant, and compares extremely well to other vegetable oils with stronger taste – for example, olive oil. Our process produces a premium quality, organic oil. To attain this, our seeds are cold-pressed in stainless steel machinery , avoiding harmful effects due to reactive metals.

Sacha inchi is a forest crop with a long production time and crop life, which encourages reforestation of the Amazon. Some sachi inchi plants can produce for as long as 75 years. Sacha inchi plants flower five months after being planted, bearing fruits after another three months. The plant will continue to thrive for over 10 years, providing a sustainable source of income for the people of the Amazon. The popularity of this species is growing, gradually allowing sachi inchi to help reduce local farmers’ dependence on cultivation of coca1.*
