Hemp hearts are the inner seed of the hemp plant. The hemp heart contains all the nutrients – over 30% balanced protein and over 30% high nutrition omega 3, 6, and 9 oils.
Hemp hearts have a light, nutty flavour, something like a cashew, and blend easily into smoothies. They can also be used on salad, cereal, porridge, or yogurt.
Hemp hearts are over 30% protein and have one of the most complete proteins in the plant kingdom, containing the full range of essential amino acids.
Hemp Seed protein helps build and repair muscle tissue, and provides a good alternative to dairy.
Hemp seeds have the perfect balance of omega essential fats. ‘Essential’ means that the body can’t produce these fats itself, so it requires dietary input. Hemp seeds contains the perfect ratio (3:1) of omega 3 to omega 6 essential fatty acids for the human body. This is unique in the plant world.
Hemp is high in fibre, a prebiotic essential for healthy digestion and is also rich in glutamine known for assisting gut health and aiding absorption of protein.
Hemp has a significant positive environmental impact, requiring relatively little water to grow and soaking up five times the CO2 of the average tree. Hemp is easy to grow, needing no pesticides or herbicides and provides a sustainable source of protein.
