Inca peanuts are rich in nutrients – making them a healthy but indulgent snack. Here’s why they are called a superfood:
Inca peanuts or “Sacha inchi seeds” are the richest source of Omega 3 available. At 7000mg of heart-healthy Omega 3 per one ounce serving, they offer 13 times more Omega 3 than an ounce of wild salmon – without having to deal with unpleasant fishy flavors and aftertastes!
Inca peanuts are an exceptional source of plant-based protein with 8 grams of protein per ounce – more than most nuts and seeds. Inca Peanuts are a complete protein source which is rich in both essential and non-essential amino acids. This highly digestible protein is very useful in tissue regeneration and muscle development, and it’s easily digestible… no irritation, gas, or acidity.
This ancient food “INCA PEANUTS” source is also a particularly abundant source of tryptophan, an amino acid that can help promote a positive mood – containing about 29 mg of tryptophan per gram of protein, which is more than 8 times higher than roasted turkey.
Inca Peanuts have a high concentration of powerful natural antioxidants like Vitamin E, which helps to ward off cardiovascular disease and cancer by protecting cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.
