Organic hulled hemp seeds (also known as hemp hearts) are a nutritious powerhouse, providing a great source of high quality plant-based protein, a complete amino acid profile and are also rich in fibre. Hemp seeds are naturally gluten free. Sprinkle on smoothies and salads, make hemp milk, bliss balls and more!
Hemp is considered one of the most nutritious plants in the world and the seeds contain all 20 amino acids, including the 9 essential ones that our bodies cannot produce on its own. Hemp seeds are also a rich source of essential minerals, including magnesium and phosphorus for bone health, zinc to help support the immune system, and iron for oxygenating the blood.
Whole hemp seeds contain 10 to 15 percent fibre, which aids in constipation and promotes digestive regularity. The Omega-6 fatty acids in hemp seeds regulate metabolism, help brain function, maintain bone health, and stimulate skin and hair growth. As a natural appetite suppressant, adding hemp seed to your meals can reduce your food cravings and help you feel full longer.
Hemp seeds have a mild, nutty flavor and are ready to use raw or in low heat cooking. The seeds can be sprinkled on hot cereal, yogurt or salads, added to shakes & smoothies, or added to breads, pancakes, granola bars and other baked desserts. Because they are packed with protein, hemp seeds are ideal for people following a paleo diet or trying to reduce their carb intake.
