What are hemp hearts?
Hemp Hearts are the creamy, nutty centre of the hemp seed. The hemp seed from the paddock (once cleaned and dried) has the outer shell (husk) removed in a process called de-hulling.
They are a very versatile and delicious addition to virtually any type of dish. They can be sprinkled on salads and desserts, added to smoothies, baked in bread the options are endless.
They are high in protein (32%) and contain a complete chain of amino acids making them a healthy plant based alternative to meat products.
Hemp seeds contain a high amount of essential fatty acids (Omega 3, Omega 6 and GLA). The Omega 6 and Omega 3 fats are delivered in the optimum ratio of 3:1 which allows the human body to fully absorb them.
They also contain high amounts of vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc.
