Known as sacha peanut or mountain peanut, Sacha-inchi is one of the richest plant sources for omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid and linoleic acid respectively). Apart from that, the oil has a high content of tocopherols (>2000 ppm), mainly gamma- and delta-tocopherol that contribute to the oxidation stability despite the high iodine value and high content of poly-unsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs).
Traditionally, the oil is used as food and as a cosmetic ingredient. Despite what some bloggers mention, the oil smells nutty but not fishy (just because fish oil is a source of omega-3 it doesn't mean all oils rich in omega-3 shall smell fishy). Known as a superfood, sacha-inchi oil is one of the most important and widely used vegan omega-3 sources.
