NutriScience Introduces New Sacha Inchi Oil, Powder

NutriScience Innovations introduced Sacha Inchi plant-based oil and protein powder.

News Release

NutriScience Innovations LLC, a leading global supplier of nutritional ingredients and functional raw materials, is excited to announce its newest functional specialty ingredient—Sacha Inchi plant-based oil and protein powder. Sacha Inchi (Plukenetia volubilis) is a plant native to the area surrounding the Amazon River that produces a star-shaped fruit. Sacha Inchi is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as omega-6 fatty acids, omega-9 fatty acids and protein.

Sacha Inchi also contains vitamins A and E and is considered by many to be a "superfood” due to its excellent nutritional profile. Sacha Inchi Oil is ideal for vegetarians and those who are not consuming sufficient omega-rich fish and vegetables in their diets. Sacha Inchi Oil offers similar benefits to omega-rich fish oil but without the strong fish odor or taste and Sacha Inchi Protein Powder provides many of the same benefits as the oil.

NutriScience’s Sacha Inchi Protein Powder is highly digestible and is a great solution for sports supplement products, providing 55-65% plant-based protein and a rich profile of essential and non-essential amino acids. “NutriScience is excited to introduce this new, Non-GMO, plant-derived oil and protein powder, with a rich profile of nutritional benefits for the dietary and sports/performance industries”, says Ryan Pallathra, Director of Business Development of NutriScience Innovations.

Applications for NutriScience’s Sachi Inchi oil and protein powder include: dietary supplements, sports supplements, functional foods, cosmetics & personal care products. Sacha Inchi Oil can also be used in the cosmetics applications, acting as a binding and lathering agent in soap. It helps to moisturize and protect the skin and provides a soft-glossy look to hair.
