Where does it grow?
Country of Origin: Peru
Peru is a country in the Western Hemisphere and is on the west coast of the continent of South America, directly opposite China on a globe of the world.
The Sacha Inchi plant has been cultivated in the Amazon rainforest along the east slope of the lower Andes for over 3,000 years, Archaeologist have even found evidence in carvings on Incan tomb vessels.
500 meters above sea level, mainly in the district of Pichanaqui (Junin – Peru), sandwiched between the Andes and the Amazon jungle your will find a land that offers the best environmental conditions to cultivate the Sacha Inchi plant. This land is rich in minerals and some nutrients and is an ideal growth bed for the Sacha Inchi plant (also known as the Inca Peanut), which is grown, cultivated and harvested by the indigenous tribes.
What is Sacha Inchi?
The Sacha Inchi seed starts its life inside a small 6 lobed green pod. The harvested pods are sun-dried until they turn a dark brown and split open, revealing the Sachi Inchi seeds. Once the Sachi Inchi seeds have been extraced they can be roasted (taking on a nut like quality) and consumed, or pressed and the Extra Virgin oil can be extracted and used in a number of ways for the skin, hair and nails.
Sacha Inchi has only recently been rediscovered because of the high protein and oil content of its seed it is one of the best of the Argan oils family and is now quickly spreading to the rest of the world.
