Inca Inchi oil is awarded food product certification in Europe

Perles de Gascogne, a company specialised in the production and distribution of high quality first cold press virgin oils, has just been awarded European food product certification for virgin Inca Inchi oil, after seven years of analysis and additional studies.

European partner of the leading Peruvian producer, the Perles de Gascogne company has obtained Novel Food certification for its first cold press virgin Inca Inchi oil; the European certificate of authorisation to sell on the food market.

This oil is produced from Plukenetia seeds, which are cultivated in the Amazonian region of Peru using traditional and organic agricultural methods. Known and valued by the cosmetics industry for several years, it is currently the richest vegetable source of omega 3 available on the food market.

Also known as Sacha Inchi, this oily substance is a valid alternative for food processing and nutraceutic companies wishing to develop their ranges of omega 3 enriched products: combined oils, margarines, dairy produce, food supplements…

Its richness of flavour and nutritional qualities also make it a first-choice product for amateur chefs and professional caterers: restaurateurs, chefs, bakers…

Marketed and sold exclusively by Perles de Gascogne in France and in Europe since March 2013, this product completes the range of first cold press virgin oils produced and distributed by the company: virgin hazelnut oil, virgin walnut oil and the flagship product, virgin prune kernel oil.
