Hemp Seeds - Raw Hemp Seed Hearts
Hailed by many as one of the most nutritious seeds in the world, hemp seeds are a true powerhouse food. Containing 50% more protein than Chia and packed full of fibre and health-benefiting Omega 3 they are a great way to easily add 'goodness' into your daily diet.
So what exactly are hemp hearts? Hemp seed hearts are the soft kernel hidden within the shell of hemp seeds. They have a wonderful nutty flavour and are extremely versatile. Use to breathe life into salads, stir fry dishes, soups, yogurts, cereals, breads and baking. They are also great as a simple snack on their own!
The protein found in hemp seeds is the nearest in profile to animal protein than any other plant protein. As a high quality, complete protein, it contains all 20 amino acids including the 9 essential amino acids that our bodies cannot produce themselves so can only get from food.
These amazing little seeds are also bursting with Omegas 3, 6 and 9, all in exactly the right ratio to be easily absorbed by our bodies. In fact, the Omega 3 supplied by hemp is also one of the most effective types, much more easily absorbed by our bodies than the Omega 3 found in most plant foods. Not bad eh!
Good Fact: A 30g serving of Hemp Seeds contains more Protein and Omegas than the same serving of Chia or Flax seeds.
