Organic Traditions Dark Chocolate Covered Sacha Inchi Seeds combine two delicious superfoods into a healthy and nutritious snack. Chocolate was once so revered by the Mayans and the Aztecs that it was used as currency. Sacha Inchi Seeds have been a prized superseed since the Inca civilization. They are a source of Fiber, vegetarian Omega-3 and Iron.
The delicate nutty taste of Sacha Inchi paired with the rich, dark chocolate coating makes for an incredible treat. The chocolate is gluten-free and sugarfree and is naturally sweetened with low-glycemic Organic Traditions Yacon Syrup as opposed to conventional sugar. Yacon is a root indigenous to the Andes of Peru and Bolivia. Also known as the Peruvian Ground Apple or Sunroot, it has been prized since the Incan civilization as a pleasantly sweet tasting tuber. A close relative of the Jerusalem artichoke the tuber’s sweet taste is mainly comprised of FOS or Fructo- oligosaccharides. Fructo-oligosaccharides are a type of dietary sugar that the body does not metabolize. These indigestible carbohydrates support the growth of beneficial bacteria without a significant impact on blood glucose levels.
