Now certified organic. Hemp is a gift of nature and a complete protein. Enjoy the world’s most nutritious seeds, either plain or as a delicious condiment. Shelled hempseeds (“hemp nut”) are 33% digestible pure protein, are rich in vitamin E, magnesium, as well as Omega-3 (ALA) and Omega-6 (LA) — the essential fatty acids (EFAs) doctors recommend.
Unlike flax, hemp contains valuable Super Omega-3 (SDA) and Super Omega-6 (GLA), which help our bodies metabolize fat.
To ensure the highest nutritional quality, a mechanical cold-shelling process removes the hempseed’s hard outer shells, yielding a 100% raw gourmet superfood that tastes like pine nuts.
Eat 2-4 tablespoons daily by adding to cereal, omelets, yogurt, soups, snacks, smoothies, salads, pasta, veggies, dressings, and desserts. Consider making fresh hemp milk in your blender, or lightly pan-toast the seeds — but not above 325°F, to conserve the EFAs.
Canadian farmers grow this hemp without pesticides or herbicides which makes this product safer for you and the planet! Growing hemp (a nonpsychoactive crop) restores our soils and conserves forests, contributing to a healthy and sustainable world.
Storage: It is best to keep shelled hemp seed refrigerated and air tight. If you purchase a bulk bag, consider adding a pound to a container for daily use, then seal up the remainder and place it in the freezer. This will help protect the seed quality.
Note: Contains slightly more shell fragments than 10 oz pouch.
