The dense nutritional profile makes this natural powder an ideal protein source for plant-based diets. Non-GMO & vegan. Gluten Free. With light mild nutty flavor. Smooth fine powder – easy to mix. 6 grams of protein per serving. A spoonful of omega fatty acids.  . Sacha Inchi also known as the Inca peanut is grown in the Amazonian highlands of Peru.

Simply blend into smoothies for an easy protein boost after exercise or stir into home-baked desserts when that mid-afternoon sugar craving strikes.  . About Vitacost.

The first time I tried it.

"I just add 1/2 tablespoon to the oatmeal at breakfast to get some more protein. Sacha Inchi has been called a super food because of its high content of essential fatty acids. The oil has a mild flavour, not bitter, with a nutty finish. With new research emphasizing the health benefits of Omega fatty acids, interest in sustainable sources of Omega is increasing. Sacha Inchi oil is used in vegetarian diets to provide a plant source for Omega-3 fatty acids.
It is native to much of tropical South America.

"This is by far the most disgusting protein powder I have EVER tried. I have tried alot of the years. It does not dissolve, it is super gritty, with a stale texture. The smell was gross but I thought I would give it a try anyways. It tastes so bad that it bad me throw up and that has never happened to me before.
I will be returning! Huge waste of money and I have liked all of Vitacosts other products..

Sachi Inchi's nutty goodness
 August 14, 2014
"I blend this protein powder into my morning chocolate milk for a 1-2-punch that keeps me full 'til lunchtime. It's like a peanut butter cup (without the peanuts, to which I am allergic)."
