    Vega SaviSeed Cocoa Kissed Inca Peanuts - 5 oz. (142g)

    Vega SaviSeed Cocoa Kissed Inca Peanuts is the richest plant-based source of Omega-3 on the planet, these amazing seeds on their own boast 17 times more Omega-3 per ounce than wild Sockeye salmon. Vega SaviSeeds are gently roasted to perfection and lightly coated for an unmatched combination of taste and nutrition that's gluten-free and packed with complete protein - the perfect healthy indulgence.

    Features and Benefits:

    • Gently roasted sacha inchi seed snack
    • 17 times more Omega-3 per ounce than wild Sockeye salmon
    • Packed with complete protein
    • Gluten-free

    What is Vega SaviSeed?
    Borne from star-shaped pods and native to the Amazon rainforest, sacha inchi seeds have been cultivated and consumed for centuries in Peru. Vega SaviSeed (sacha inchi) crops aid in returning previously cleared land of the Amazon rainforest to its native state while supporting the rural economy. Our premium Vega SaviSeeds are sustainably grown and proudly produced in partnership with Peruvian farmers.

    What makes Vega SaviSeed super?
    Vega SaviSeeds are rich in nutrients, making them a healthy but indulgent snack. Here's why we call them a superfood:

    Omega-3
    Sacha inchi seeds are the richest plant-based source of Omega-3 on the planet! Ounce for ounce, these amazing seeds on their own contain 17 times more Omega-3 than wild sockeye salmon. Boasting a whopping 6 g of Omega-3 per one ounce of lightly roasted Vega SaviSeed, nuts pale in comparison to this Omega-rich snack.

    Protein
    Vega SaviSeeds are an exceptional source of plant-based protein with 9 grams of complete protein per ounce - more than most nuts and seeds.

    Tryptophan
    This ancient food source is also a particularly abundant source of tryptophan, an amino acid that's a pre-cursor to the production of Serotonin - an important hormone that can help promote a positive mood. Vega SaviSeed contains about 28 mg of tryptophan per gram of protein.

    Gluten-free
    Vega SaviSeeds are gluten free.

    Fiber
    A mere one ounce serving of Vega SaviSeed delivers 5 grams of dietary fiber - a significant 20% of your recommended daily intake.

    What is SaviSeed?

    When they say SaviSeed, they mean premium, organic sacha inchi seeds - the super food of the ancient Inca peoples. Not just your average seed, sacha inchi seeds also known as the Inca Peanut are native to the Amazon rainforest and have been cultivated and consumed for centuries in Peru. SaviSeeds are the fruit of sacha inchi plants, herbaceous vines that produce star-shaped green pods which yield edible seeds - SaviSeeds. Their premium SaviSeeds are sustainably and organically grown and proudly produced in partnership with indigenous Peruvian farmers.

    SaviSeed brings the wonders of an ancient Peruvian food source to you. Also known as the Inca Peanut, sacha inchi's scientific name is Plukenetia volubilis. Sacha inchi has been known by the natives of Peru and other indigenous peoples of the Amazon for centuries. Historians believe the plant has probably been used by the Incas over 3000 years ago, which is evident from the interpretation of the plant on vessels in Incan tombs.

    Sacha inchi has been used traditionally by communities in the Amazon in different meals, such as the inchicapi, a regional soup and as cooked seeds ground up in a sauce. The oil and roasted seeds are common ingredients in cities and towns throughout Peru's jungle. It is also used externally by Peruvian people as a rejuvenating cream applied on the skin. This treasure of the Amazon has a rich history which you can now have access to in the form of SaviSeed - the best tasting, richest source of Omega 3!

    SaviSeed - How is it grown?

    Beneath the high peaks of the Peruvian Andes Mountains lie highland jungles filled with lush vegetation. Amid the many tropical plant species there grow woody, twining vines bearing green pods and small seeds. These shrub-like vines are sacha inchi plants, the source of SaviSeeds. Cultivated in small plantation farms, they grow in rows to a height of 2-3 meters, supported by wooden posts.

    The soil in which SaviSeeds are produced is notably rich and full of minerals and nutrients - another reason why they provide so many nutritional benefits. Sacha inchi plants thrive in high humidity, high sunlight exposure and heat. The sacha inchi fruit is a star shaped green pod, covered in 3 layers of shell - with each pod containing 3-7 seeds.

    Harvest and Transport
    The first crop harvest comes just 7-8 months from the time of planting. After the first harvest, sacha inchi plants produce crops several times throughout the year, and depending on conditions, can produce for as long as ten years. When the sacha inchi pods are ready to pick, they make cracking sounds and turn from green to brown in color. Teams working in fields then pick the star shaped pods from the plants and place into baskets. After being picked, the pods are placed on drying beds (long tables with wire mesh), where they dry in the warm sunshine until the seeds are exposed.

    From there, the pods are pressed, removing layers to get to the seed. Once removed, seeds are put into sacks and stored. When sacha inchi farmers have a large enough volume of seeds stored, it's time to bring them to market. The sacks of seed are transported from the farmer's land by cart to Lima, from which they are then imported into Canada

    Where does it come from?

    The Amazon rainforest is one of the most valuable and important places in the world - in fact, it is the largest forest on the planet representing one-fifth of the world's fresh water and containing thousands of animal and plant species.Sacha inchi plants are native to this amazing rainforest, grown deep in the lowland regions of Peru.

    SaviSeeds are the fruit of many harvests. In Peru, farmers grow sacha inchi plants on small plots of land in high and abundant jungle regions, often in addition to their other crops. The yields of many of these small sacha inchi plantations are combined to become SaviSeeds. In this way, the production of SaviSeed allows Peruvian communities to band together, as they collectively raise sacha inchi seeds to earn a living and support their families.

    Omega 3

    SaviSeeds are the richest source of Omega 3 on the planet! At 7000mg of heart-healthy Omega 3 per one ounce serving, they offer 13 times more Omega 3 than an ounce of wild salmon - and with SaviSeeds, you'll have no fishy aftertaste! Since Omega 3 is not naturally produced by the body, it's essential to consume Omega 3 rich foods like SaviSeed to reduce inflammation and promote heart, joint and mental health , and even help to prevent cancer and disease.

    Not only are SaviSeeds amazingly rich in Omega 3, they also contain Omega 6 and 9 in an optimally balanced ratio. Modern day diets have significantly raised levels of Omega 6, as it is found in grains, poultry and eggs. Consuming foods like SaviSeed with higher levels of Omega 3 will balance fatty acid ratios for optimum health.

    So how does SaviSeed compare to other commonly known sources of Omega 3? This chart is a great reference - comparing SaviSeed to seeds, nuts and fish! As you can see below, one ounce of Oh Natural SaviSeeds contain 7000 mg of Omega 3 which exceeds even flax seeds' 6400 mg. While the numbers are close, SaviSeeds are far easier to consume as they don't require grinding to access nutrients and are far more snackable!
