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.
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 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 is an extra virgin oil whose content of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids (PUFA) surpasses 83% , of which the linolenic acid (an Omega 3 fatty acid) totals 48% while the linoleic acid (an Omega 6 fatty acid) totals 35%. 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.*
