What are Sacha Inchi Nuts?

  • Plukenetia volubilis, or sacha inchi, is a perennial plant native to certain parts of South America and the Caribbean. It produces a fruit that's cultivated for its large, edible seeds.
  • Because it was traditionally consumed by indigenous groups in Peru, it's sometimes referred to as mountain peanut or Inca nut.
  • Although the fruit itself is not commonly consumed, the seeds are roasted and eaten. They're also ground into a fine powder and added to food products. Plus, the oil is extracted from the seeds and used in cooking or skin care products.
  • Sacha inchi fruit pods are star shaped and are bright green.

General Storage Tips:

• Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
• Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
• Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
• Mason jars make great storage containers.
• Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
