Sacha inchi (Plukenetia volubilis) is a plant that produces large, edible seeds rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, protein, and other substances such as vitamin E and beta-sitosterol. Native to Peru, sacha inchi is also known as sacha peanut, jungle peanut, or Inca peanut.
Sacha inchi has a nut-like flavour when toasted and can be eaten as a snack or added to a variety of dishes. Rich in plant-based omega-3 fatty acids and protein, it is a common addition to vegetarian and vegan diets. Often marketed as a "superfood," sacha inchi is said to offer a variety of benefits.
