Buy Organic Sacha Inchi Seeds In Singapore
This South American superfood might look (and taste!) like nuts, but they aren’t actually nuts at all. The Sacha Inchi plant is native to parts of tropical South America as well as the Carribean. Indigenous Peruvians have cultivated the plant for centuries for its health benefits, and while the raw seeds aren’t edible, they make for a great super snack once lightly roasted. As they are seeds, not nuts, they are safe for people with nut allergies to consume as well. Check out these recipes to start planning your extra protein and Omega 3 boost!
Health Benefits of Sacha Inchi Seeds
High in plant-based Omega fatty acids
Sacha Inchi seeds are rich in Omega fats (3,6) and in fact have one of the highest levels of plant-based Omega 3 fats! They are a great way for vegans, vegetarians, and those on plant-based diets to get their Omega fatty acids. The seeds are also low in GI, and have a richer nutrient profile compared to most traditional nuts.
Rich in quality protein and other nutrients
Apart from their high levels of Omega fats, Sacha Inchi seeds are also rich in complete protein, vitamins A and E, dietary fibre, and nutrients including iron, calcium, and potassium. They can support muscle growth, tissue repair and digestive health, and are a good choice for a post-workout snack.
Promote healthy sleep and appetite
If you’re having trouble going to bed on time, Sacha Inchi seeds might be able to help. They contain tryptophan, an essential amino acid that helps stimulate your brain to produce more serotonin and melatonin. These help to regulate your sleep, appetite and mood to keep you feeling energized and refreshed throughout the day.
