More protein than a steak and much better for the environment too!

Our organic hemp seeds may be tiny, but they are a versatile nutritional powerhouse. Particularly rich in complete protein (36% protein per weight, which is more than meat), they're also packed with fibre, magnesium, potassium and vitamin E. Most interestingly, they’re among the few plants that contain the perfect ratio of essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids - which is important, because the average person’s diet tends to have too much omega-6 and not enough omega-3.

They're also excellent sources of B vitamins, manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc and iron. Really, you can't go wrong with adding hemp seeds to your diet. Naturally gluten free, they're a great source of energy at breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

Their delicate, nutty flavour makes them a great ingredient to cook with. Add some organic hemp seeds to your smoothies, granola, energy bars, pesto and salads. You can even make milk out of them! Enjoy them in a variety of recipes and reap all the benefits of these great seeds!

History

Hemp is an ancient plant native to Central Asia. It was consumed by followers of Shinto in Japan and some others in Eastern European populations in the form of gruel and butter.

Historically, hemp was an important source of fiber used to make rope, sails, clothing and paper. Until 1883, up to 90% of the world's paper was made from hemp fiber - famous documents like the first drafts of the American Declaration of Independence, Gutenberg and King James' Bibles, and Lewis Carroll's Alice In Wonderland were all written on hemp paper. More durable and recyclable than regular paper, hemp base paper does not require the use of chlorine to be whitened. At that time, hemp cultivation had spread all through North America until it was discontinued in 1938. It wasn't until 1998 that industrial hemp cultivation was authorized by the Canadian government again.

Edible (industrial) hemp is very different from marijuana as it is much lower in THC (psychotropic substance in marijuana ). Its THC content is regulated to 0.2% or lower in order to be considered edible.

Culinary Uses

Hemp seeds have a delicate, nutty taste that makes them great for a variety of uses: on your cereal, granola or yogurt, in salads, sauces and pesto, or in smoothies and baked goods. It is recommended to eat them raw and to not cook them over 180˚C / 350˚F.

Exceptionally well shelled hemp hearts Written By: ANDREA
Exceptionally well shelled hemp hearts. No shells at all. Fresh and not oxidized.

Love the taste and the feeling of high hormone levels the day after consuming these. Hence a stable mood. Real brain and muscle food after physical activity without any negative effects on the male body unlike consuming other seeds with estrogenic lignans.
Hemp seeds are great Written By: CHANTAL
I like hemp seeds; this is the second bag I order. They are fresh, they taste good.
I use them in smoothies, with yogurt, on top of fruit salad and fruit pies or just in the spoon when I am hungry at night.
I even give some to my turtledove, she loves them.
Thanks Prana for fresh quality and organic products
