Iron plays a crucial role in the body, helping to metabolize proteins and make hemoglobin — an essential part of red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body. Iron also supports healthy muscle and brain function. Sacha Inchi offers 9.52 mg of iron per ounce, more than spinach or lentils. Iron also helps ward off anemia symptoms like weakness, headaches, and fatigue.

Traditional Medicine

Originally from the Amazon Rainforests of South America, Sacha Inchi grows on a vine that thrives under the thick canopies of lush rainforest regions. This super nutritious plant has been consumed by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon for thousands of years. Historians have found the vine depicted on Inca tombs that date back 3,000 years.

Today, our Sacha Inchi is grown in the pristine rainforests of Southeast Asia—hours away from any city. The local villages of rural Thailand, Lao, and Cambodia are experimenting with this incredible source of plant protein in traditional dishes.

In addition to supporting small farmers through our sourcing, we donate 5% of our annual profits to eco-social projects that benefit people and planet. Your support of Imlak’esh Organics is felt by thousands of farmers around the world.

We created our 5% for the People program to invest in a brighter future.

A Seed of Hope

The seed starts in the mountainous regions of pristine rainforests, where families are beginning to grow and harvest Sacha Inchi. The villagers in many of these impoverished communities have never had a job, farmed a cash crop, or had any source of income (which means they had no access to medicine, mobility, or even basic human necessities). Sacha Inchi creates an economic opportunity for thousands of people, where none previously existed.
