Organic Gourmet Super Food – La Tourangelle has created a unique, 100% organic blend to get the best of both worlds: gourmet food & supplement. The Organic Amazonian Nutriblend™ could be considered a supplement oil thanks to its high level of vitamin E and omega 3. The blend has yummy, nutty aromas and earthy undertones and by using it daily, you will benefit from essential nutrients.
Usage: Ideal for cooking boosted breakfasts, smoothies, vegan and vegetarian dishes. For the meat-eater, it pairs very well as a finishing oil with beef and poultry.
A Synergistic Blend: Organic Virgin Sacha Inchi Oil, Organic High Oleic Sunflower Oil, Organic Refined Coconut Oil, and Organic Sesame Seed Oil.
A powerful nut-like seed: The Organic Amazonian Nutriblend™ finds its roots in the discovery of the powerful Sacha Inchi seed that grows in the Highland Amazon Forest. The Sacha Inchi seed has been used for thousands of years in traditional Peruvian medicine. It has been part of the Inca diet for 3,000 years giving them good intake of protein, omega 3-6-9 balance and anti-oxidants.
Health Benefits: Excellent source of the anti-oxidant Vitamin E providing 20% of the FDA’s recommended daily intake. Contains 2.70g of Omega 3 to compensate for the low intake of omega 3 in the western diet (omega 3 is important in the prevention of heart disease). These natural and vegetable nutrients are particularly desirable in vegan and vegetarian diet. The Sacha Inchi seeds produce a rare and exceptional virgin oil. It is really considered as a super food by nutritionists.

Alpha-linolenic acid is similar to the omega-3 fatty acids that are in fish oil, called eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). One of the best ways to help prevent and treat heart disease is to eat a diet that is low in saturated and trans fats, and rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, particularly omega-3 fatty acids.
Alpha-tocopherol: 16.5mg/serving. The US RDA is 15 mg/day. Vitamin E is an antioxidant.

Alpha-tocopherol is the only form that is recognized to meet human requirements.
