Most sacha inchi powder is minimally processed to maintain all of the nutrition that is found in sacha inchi nuts and can be placed in smoothies, cereals, desserts, almond milk, etc.
Sacha inchi oil is usually cold -pressed and unrefined. Cold pressed oil is oil that is produced through a combination of grinding and low heat. Then, the oil is protected by placing it in a glass jar with a nitrogen flush to maintain optimal freshness, prevent oxidation and to maintain all maximum nutrition. Sacha inchi oil has a distinct nutty flavor and can be placed on salads, sauces, soups, pastas, in smoothies, etc.
Sacha inchi powder and oil are both gaining quick popularity in the West and folks often wonder if it is best to take the supplement in powder, oil or capsule form. Absorption is better if taken in powder or oil form with food. However, if you cannot stomach the nutty flavor, gel capsules are widely available.
