What is Sacha Inchi?什么是美藤果?

Sacha Inchi is a woody vine that is native to the Amazon Rainforests in Peru.  The indigenous people of these Rainforests have cultivated the vine for thousands of years. The Sacha Inchi plant produces a star shaped fruit that contains between 3 and 7 white nuts.  These Sacha Inchi nuts have a high oil and protein content.  The oil extracted from these nuts is rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids (up to 92% of the oil are Omega 3, 6 and 9) along with Vitamin E.  Sacha Inchi has the added benefit of containing approximately 6% saturated fats, far lower than Fish Oil sources of Omega Fatty Acids (approximately 40% Saturated Fats).  Once the oil is extracted from the Sacha Inchi beans a powder high in protein is left over.

美藤果是一种木质藤本植物,是秘鲁亚马逊雨林的原生植物。这些热带雨林的土着人种植该藤本植物已有数千年的历史。美藤果植物是一个星形果实,含有3至7粒白色坚果。这些美藤果坚果具有高含量的油份和蛋白质。从这些坚果中提取的油份富含欧米伽3, 6和9脂肪酸(其高达92%的成分是Omega 3,6和9)以及维生素E。美藤果附加的优点是其只含有约6%的饱和脂肪,远低于通过鱼油摄取的欧米伽脂肪酸含量(约40%饱和脂肪)。一旦从美藤豆中提取出油份,就只剩下富含蛋白质的粉末。

 

How is it grown? 它是如何生长的?

Sacha Inchi is a perennial plant that grows to approximately 2 meters tall.  The vines can be trained along a wire to allow easy harvesting of the fruit.  It grows well from sea level up to 1700 meters in elevation.  The plant has large leaves and produces small white flowers.  Fruit is produced approximately 8 to 10 months after planting.  Fruit is picked manually as it matures.  If the plant is continually watered it will produce fruit year round, if not there will be up to two seasons per year depending upon the water availability. All of Zenda’s plants are grown organically.  We currently have our Central Farm Organically certified in Thailand.  Each of the contract farmers will obtain their own Organic Certification as the business progresses.  美藤果是一种多年生植物,高约2米。可以使用铁丝引导其的藤蔓生长,以方便采摘。从海平面到海拔1700米高的环境均可生长良好。该植物有大叶子,开出小白花。种植后约8至10个月可结果。果实成熟时,手工采摘。如果给果藤不断浇水,它将全年结果,如果未能不断浇水,那么每年将收获两季,取决于水的可用性。所有Zenda的植物都是有机生长的。目前我们在泰国的中央农场已获得有机认证。随着业务的发展,每位契约农民都将获得自己的有机认证。

 

How is Sacha Inchi Processed? 美藤果是怎样进行加工的?

Sacha Inchi fruit has a hard fibrous husk, which is removed mechanically to reveal a bean encased in a dark tough hull.  Another mechanical process removes the hull leaving a white bean.  The beans are cold pressed to extract the Sacha Inchi Oil.  The oil is filtered and then ready to consume. No chemicals or other agents whatsoever are needed. 美藤果的果实有一个坚硬的纤维壳,通过机械去除,露出一个在色深质硬的壳中包裹的豆子。通过另一台机械除去外壳,留下白色的豆子。豆子被冷榨以提取美藤果油。对油进行过滤,就可以使用了。无需任何化学品或其他制剂。

 

What products come from Sacha Inchi? 美藤果可以做成什么产品?

The main products that come from Sacha Inchi are: 美藤果做成的主要产品为:

  • Sacha Inchi Oil 美藤果油

  • Protein Powder 蛋白粉

  • Body Scrub 身体磨砂膏                                       

 

The Sacha Inchi Oil is ready for consumption immediately after extraction and filtering.  The filtering removes any powder that remains in the Oil after extraction.  美藤果油在提取和过滤后即可以使用。过滤程序除去果油在提取过程后残留的任何粉末。

 

The Sacha Inchi Protein Powder is essentially the Sacha Inchi bean less the extracted Oil.  After the Oil is extracted the powder is milled ready for consumption.  The extraction process does not remove all of the Oil from the powder and as such the powder does contain some Omega fatty acids.  The amount of Omega will vary with the level of Oil extraction (the more Oil that is removed the less left in the Powder). The Oil extraction level can be easily varied to leave more or less Omega Fatty Acids in the Protein Powder.  美藤果蛋白粉基本上是美藤豆完成果油提取后的产物。在提取果油后,粉末被粉碎,即可使用。提取过程不会把粉末中全部的油份去除,因此这类粉末中确确实实含有一些欧米伽脂肪酸。欧米伽的含量随果油提取量的变化而变化(去除的油份越多,则粉末中遗留的油份越少)。调整果油提取量很简单,以便在蛋白粉中留下更多或更少的欧米伽脂肪酸。

 

The Sacha Inchi Body Scrub is left over after the filtering process.  It is a combination of the Oil and Protein Powder that is not easily separated during filtering.  This product can be consumed however we are positioning it as a Body Scrub that can be used during massage or a daily washing routine as the Omega Fatty acids and Vitamin E in Sacha Inchi Oil has many benefits for the skin.  过滤后剩下的就是美藤果身体磨砂膏。它是过滤过程中不易被分离的油份和蛋白粉末的组合 。该产品可以被消费使用,但是我们将其定位为可在按摩或日常洗涤过程中使用的身体磨砂,因为在美藤果油中的欧米伽脂肪酸和维生素E对皮肤有很多益处。

 

Other Products that can be developed from Sacha Inchi Oil and Protein Powder? 可以从美藤果油和蛋白粉中开发其他产品吗?

The Oil and Protein powder can be used to produce Omega Snack Bars and other health food products that contain a plant source of Omega and Protein.  The Oil can be used to produce a range of shampoos, essential oils, massage oils and cosmetics.  The raw nuts can be roasted (in the hull or after the hull is removed) and eaten as a snack. The leaves of the Sacha Inchi Vine can be used to create a refreshing tea, which contains Omega Fatty Acids.

果油和蛋白粉可用于生产欧米伽能量棒和其他含有欧米伽和蛋白质植物来源的健康食品。果油可用于生产一系列洗发剂、精油、按摩油和化妆品。生的坚果可以被烘烤(带壳或去壳后)并作为一款小食食用。美藤果藤的叶子可以用来制作清凉茶饮,里面含有欧米伽脂肪酸。

 

How is Sacha Inchi consumed? 如何使用美藤果?

Sacha Inchi Oil can be taken as a supplement orally via capsule or directly.  Sacha Inchi Oil has a fresh nutty taste and is a flavoured complement to salads and soups and it can be baked into various baked goods.  We currently have several chefs testing the Oil for use in sauces for Thai foods.  Sacha Inchi Oil is not suitable for use when frying.  美藤果油可以通过胶囊形式或直接口服作为补充剂。美藤果油具有新鲜的坚果味,能给沙拉和汤带来独特风味,也可以加入各种烘焙食品。目前我们有几名厨师在试验如何把果油用于泰国烹饪。美藤果油不适用于油炸。

 

Sacha Inchi Protein Powder can be added to smoothies, shakes and used in baking the same way any other Protein Powder is used.  We have not yet had our Powder tested for Protein content however others find a 50% to 65% Protein content, the Protein content will vary the more oil that is left in the powder after extraction. Sacha Inchi Oil and Protein Powder can also be an ingredient in many other health food products that require a plant-based source of Omega and Protein.  美藤果蛋白粉可以添加到冰沙、奶昔中,也可以通过与任何其他蛋白粉相同的方式用于烘培。我们尚未对我们的蛋白粉进行蛋白质含量测试,但是其他方测出蛋白质含量为50%至65%,蛋白质含量会随着提取后留下的果油含量的多少而变化。美藤果油和蛋白粉也可以作为多种其他要求欧米伽和蛋白质为植物源的健康食品中的成分之一 。

 

Recent Importation Approvals 近期的进口许可

Despite being used in Peru for 3000 years it is only recently that Sacha Inchi was introduced to the rest of the world.  In January 2013 Sacha Inchi was granted approval to be imported to Europe as a Novel Food.  In October 2014 the US FDA granted Sacha Inchi GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) status.  Sacha Inchi was approved as a future food in China in 2013 and has been used in Japan since 2006. It also can be imported to countries in Asia. 尽管在秘鲁有3000年的使用历史,但美藤果最近才被引入世界其他地区。2013年1月,美藤果被批准作为新食品进口到欧洲。2014年10月,美国FDA授予美藤果GRAS(一般视为安全)状态。中国在2013年批准美藤果为未来食品,而日本自2006年以来一直在使用。也可以进口到亚洲国家。
