Hemp Seeds – Excellent Plant Protein Provider

Hemp seeds are the seeds of the hemp plant, Cannabis sativa. They are from the same species as cannabis (marijuana) but a different variety. However, they contain only trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana. Hemp seeds are exceptionally nutritious and rich in healthy fats, protein and various minerals.

Hemp seed food products offer the following: the ideal ratio of Omega-3/Omega-6 fatty acids, all 9 essential amino acids, digestible protein, calcium, potassium, phosphorous, riboflavin, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamin D, magnesium, iron, and zinc.

Hemp seeds are also rich in antioxidants, fibre, various minerals, and many vitamins including a hefty dose of vitamin E. They have been used to reduce dry skin and hair, help with muscle regeneration, reduce inflammation, ward off heart disease, and improve immune system function.

These nutritious and healing seeds are starting to be a favourite among vegans and health fanatics, and are often added to smoothies, cereals, oatmeal, and on top of salads.

B&E VITAMINS          

Hemp Seeds contain Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (Niacin) Vitamin B9 (Folate), and Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine), which are all necessary for energy production in the body. Hemp Seeds also contain Vitamin E, which is rich in anti-oxidants.

OMEGA &6

Hulled Hemp Seeds are a natural source of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids and contain the perfect ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 of 3:1. These fatty acids can only be obtained through diet.

 MAGNESIUM

Hemp contains Magnesium, a vital macro-mineral that is often deficient in our diet and needed by our body for over 300 reactions and functions.

Hemp refers to strains of cannabis sativa that have been bred specifically for fiber used for clothing and construction, oils and topical ointments, nutritional benefits, and a wide and growing variety of other purposes that don’t involve intoxication.

There are different varieties of hemp — a plant grown for seed isn’t necessarily the best plant for fiber.

Hemp seeds are often sold shelled, so you can eat them right out of the package. They offer easily digestible protein and all the essential Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids needed by the human body. Hemp seeds are also rich in antioxidants, fiber, various minerals, and many vitamins including a hefty dose of vitamin E. They have been used to reduce dry skin and hair, help with muscle regeneration, reduce inflammation, ward off heart disease, and improve immune system function.

These nutritious and healing seeds are starting to be a favourite among vegans and health fanatics, and are often added to smoothies, cereals, oatmeal, and on top of salads.

Hemp seeds can be blended with water to make a healthy milk substitute, a nice option for people with nut and soy allergies, although the flavor of hemp milk is less sweet than raw almond milk or cow’s milk. It can be used in baking or to make some homemade hot chocolate. You can buy hemp milk in a box, which may have added sweeteners.

Unlike the medicinal cannabis oil high in intoxicating delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, hemp seed oil is cold-pressed from hemp seeds and can be used in many recipes such as sauces, dips, spreads, marinades, and salad dressings. It is typically nutty in flavor and has a light green color. It does not give you buzz, aside from infusing your body with rich omega-3 fatty acids and the rarer ‘super’ polyunsaturated fatty acids, notably gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and stearidonic acid (SDA).

Hemp protein powder is typically made by cold-milling hemp seeds. This results in a product that has less fat than hemp seeds, thus the final product has mostly the natural protein found in the seeds. Lean sources of protein are beneficial for digestion, they boost metabolism, and they promote a healthy, lean body mass. Three tablespoons of hemp protein powder contain roughly 90 calories, with only 3 grams of fat but 15 grams of protein. Some hemp protein powders are also supplemented with fiber for people looking to increase their overall fiber consumption.
