Sunfood Sacha Inchi Protein Powder is a highly digestible, complete protein with all the essential amino acids your body needs, along with high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids and calcium.

Sunfood Sacha Inchi Powder is also 100% vegan, and free of dairy and gluten!
Meaning “The People's Seeds” in the Quechua language, Sacha Inchi is harvested from star-shaped seed pods growing on vines in the Peruvian Amazon. Sacha Inchi nuts are also known as Inca Peanuts. Many indigenous tribes dating back to the Incans have used Sacha Inchi for its health-giving properties. It's no wonder why this nutrient-dense superfood is quickly gaining popularity.
Continued support of Sacha Inchi and other Amazonian products will help impede the endangered fertile land on which it grows from being razed and used for raw materials that are less sustainable.
Note to Raw Purists: Sacha Inchi powder is not a 100% raw product.
Sacha Inchi Protein Powder is over 60% complete protein, ranking 98 out of 100 on the Protein Efficiency Ratio and containing all the essential amino acids needed to build muscle. It is also known for its high concentration of Omega-3 fatty acids which can help improve joint health and muscle recovery. In addition, the high levels of calcium help support healthy eyes, skin, teeth and bones.
Try adding 1-2 tablespoons to your daily superfood smoothie. Can also be used in desserts, cereals and a wide variety of superfood dishes.
Although there have been very few negative reports, some may experience adverse reactions to Sacha Inchi products. Reported adverse reactions have included anaphylaxis, hives, rashes, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach irritation and headaches. Sacha Inchi products contain highly potent omegas and are exceedingly rich in protein, sometimes causing rejection and increased sensitivity to those whose bodies may be unfamiliar to these levels of nutrients. If this occurs we suggest minimizing the dosage, or stop using Sacha Inchi altogether. Please consult your preferred health care professional should symptoms continue.
