The Inca Inchi (Plukenetia Volubilis Linneo) is a plant
originating from the Peruvian Amazon region which has been known to the
natives for several thousand years. It was used by the Incas according
to evidence provided by the pottery found in their tombs.
Current scientific studies indicate that the Inca Inchi is the
best oil plant because of its composition and high nutritional quality.
Its oil has a high content of the essential fatty acids of Omega-3 (more
than 48%) and Omega-6 (36%). It is highly digestible (more than 96%)
and contains antioxidants: vitamin A and vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol)
Over 60% of the degreased almond consists of full protein of high quality
(99% digestible), rich in essential and non-essential amino acids, in
amounts sufficient for the health.
The Omega Project of Agroindustrias
Amazónicas has been conceived so as to develop the Inca
Inchi organic crops with good impact on the ecology of the Amazon,
applying an adequate technology to the industrial process in order
to preserve the high quality of oil and protein and to achieve good
economic results in addition to operational advantages, improve the
living standard of farmers, and contribute to the world's food and
