Why eat hulled hemp seeds: energy, protein, essential fatty acids, plain and simple. Our raw shelled hemp seeds have a delectable ivory colour with green flecks and lend their nutty flavour to a large spectrum of foods. Hulled hemp seeds are pleasurable to eat and easy to digest. They have a wonderfully chewy texture and can be compared to other nuts such as pine nuts or sunflower seeds in flavour. Hulled hemp seeds are a customer favourite and best seller. They provide a well-balanced source of energy packed with protein and polyunsaturated essential fatty acids (think Omega 3-6). The hulled hemp seeds we offer are available in natural/conventional as well as certified organic. Our hulled hemp seeds are raw, Non-GMO and grown in Canada and are of the very best possible quality and freshness.
Since it is so easy to digest the proteins from hulled hemp seeds, the energy you get is impressive when compared with other foods. For example, did you know that hulled hemp seeds have a higher overall digestibility than soy or rice. In addition to the proteins in shelled hemp seed being highly digestible, they are also made up of the best kind of proteins which are the closest to the type of protein found in human blood: Edestin. Edestin aids digestion and is the backbone of human cellular DNA. The protein in hemp seed is compromised of approximately 65% Edestin. The remaining protein is Albumin, another high quality globulin protein similar to that found in egg whites. Hemp protein contains 18 amino acids including the 9 essential and 2 semi-essential amino acids (EAAs) our bodies cannot produce. Proteins are considered complete when they contain all 9 essential amino acids in a sufficient quantity and ratio to meet the body’s protein requirements. This makes hemp seeds perfect for vegans, vegetarians or anyone who is looking to reduce the meat content of their diet.
Hulled hemp seeds are excellent as a topping for many different foods such as yogurt, granola, cereal, and salads. Blend them into salad dressing recipes to create a creamy texture or various tapenades and spreads. They can also be incorporated into recipes for baking to create a wholesome flavour or blended into any smoothie. They also offer a satisfying nutty flavor and texture to many fine desert applications such as homemade chocolates. Or just eat them all on their own!
