Aug. 26, 2009 - PRLog -- Thornhill, Ontario – Sacha Inchi Corporation today announced that the best organic 100% vegetable oil of Sacha Inchi seeds containing over 93% of Omega Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) is now available in Canada in soft gel caps. The oil contains over 48% Omega-3, 36%, Omega-6 and 9% Omega-9. In addition, the oil has a high content of natural antioxidants, as well as Vitamin A and E.
Today's busy lifestyles and consumption of convenience foods result in many people having very low levels of Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's), and being at risk of depression, heart disease and cancer, all of which result from poor diet, and lack of fatty acids.

Sacha Inchi oil is extracted through a cold-pressed method which does not require refining. The oil does not contain any toxic substances or contaminants as other oils do, namely fish oil. The oil contains high levels of antioxidants for its preservation vs. other oils which require artificial preservatives. Sacha Inchi oil is highly digestible and does not cause any stomach irritation and is cholesterol free as compared to fish oil. The oil contains high levels of unsaturated fatty acids at 93% as compared to other vegetable/plant oils such as Evening Primrose Oil at 86% and Flax Seed Oil at 78%. The oil is rich in essential and non-essential amino acids at 96%.

The Sacha Inchi plant (Plukenetia Volúbilis Linneo) is a wild plant that grows only in the Amazon Region of Perú at an altitude between 80 and 1,700 meters above the sea level. The plant has been known to the natives (pre-Incas and Incas) for thousands of years according to the evidence provided by the pottery found in their tombs. The first scientific proof of the plant’s benefits came from the scientists D.C. Hazen and Y. Stoewsand at the Institute of the Food Science at Cornell University in the USA in 1980. The analysis carried out by the scientists established that the Sacha Inchi seeds contain an unusually high level of oil (49%) and have the highest content of proteins (33%) as compared to Evening Primrose Oil and Flax Seed Oil.

Sacha Inchi oil has received a number of awards, notably the Gold Medal awarded at the International Competition: ‘Oils of the Word’, WEO in Paris, France in 2004 and 2006. The oil also received awards at the top two Professional Fairs about Foods of the World: SIAL of France in 2004 and was featured in the 2006 ‘International Trends and Innovations Directory and ANUGA in Germany in 2005 as one of the top innovations of ANUGA.

Sacha Inchi oil has a delicious taste and aroma. It is ideal for gastronomy: it can be taken with salads, stews and pasta. It can be added to cooked meals or taken in its pure form – 3 soft gel capsules or 1 tablespoon/day. It is also recommended for use in the cosmetics industry.
