Sometimes called an Inca Peanut, these are actually seeds from the Sacha Inchi pod. They are excellent for snacking and rich in omega fatty acids, protein, and Vitamin E. Sacha Inchi Seeds are different than anything you’ve ever tasted before. They smell sort of like a peanut, but sort of not! We like them tossed with a little salt. Take 1 to 1-1/2 tsp salt and shake with the nuts in the bag. You can also experiment by adding your own seasoning. Try some of our pre-made seasoning blends or our Kick™ Salt!

 

Even though we very carefully check during packaging, occasionally you may run into not-so-perfect seed (under roasted, over roasted or bitter). This is normal with any natural seeds/nuts.

What is a Best By Date?

A Best By Date is NOT an expiration date. A Best By Date serves as a "suggestion" for when a product will be of best flavor or quality.  It is not a purchase or safety date. We sell products past their Best By date for a minimal discount. This offers you savings on a product which is still safe and useable for a long time. 

Best By Dates on USDA.gov

Use the Food Keeper App on FoodSafety.gov to determine approximately how soon you should consume something after Best By Date.

Sacha Inchi seeds come from the fruit of the Plukenetia volubilis, a lovely tropical plant native to South America and the Windward Islands of the Caribbean. It’s known by many names including Mountain Peanut and Inca Nut. Once the fruit ripens, it’s left on the plant to harden into seeds which become edible when roasted, producing a look and flavor similar to other nuts.

Although cultivated and used as food for thousands of years, Sacha Inchi seeds have only recently become popular in North America. This is due to their stellar nutritional profile which has earned them the distinguished privilege of being listed as a “superfood”, a title well-deserved since they are rich in tocopherols (fat-soluble alcohols that include vitamin E and other similar compounds), phytosterols (important plant compounds that are similar to cholesterol and may help lower blood cholesterol levels), polyphenols (immune-supporting antioxidants) and healthy omega fats.

Roasted Sacha Inchi seeds are a delicious, nutritious snack that can be enjoyed alone or eaten just as you would any favorite seed or nut. Plus, they’re gluten-free, keto-friendly, paleo-friendly, vegan-and-vegetarian-friendly. Here are some suggestions:

  • Toss with a little oil and salt; add sugar and chili pepper for a special kick
  • Add to a trail mix – include raisins and goji berries as well as dark chocolate for a “superfood, super-trail mix”
  • Chop roughly, and sprinkle over ice cream or favorite non-dairy frozen dessert
  • Add to a fruit salad
  • Crush or chop to sprinkle over hot or cold cereal
  • Add to smoothies
  • Enjoy with dahi / yogurt
  • Dip in dark chocolate; refrigerate and enjoy as a delicious sweet treat
  • Mix with raw honey and cinnamon. Eat as is or spoon over hot cereal
  • Crush and sprinkle over sweet potatoes
  • Garnish green salads and coleslaw
  • Make Sacha Inchi butter just like you would make almond or peanut butter
  • Grind to a flour-like consistency – add to cookies, muffins and other baked goods just like using almond meal flour
  • Chop and add to cookies, cakes, quick breads, scones and muffins
  • Chop and spoon over pancakes and waffles
  • Chop and add to hot grain dishes or chilled grains like couscous and quinoa salads
