Hemp Nutrition

The Powerhouse Seed

 

Why add hemp to your product formulations? It’s simple: protein, omegas, fiber, and a delicious nutty taste.

Hemp is a nutritional powerhouse that contains all 9 essential amino acids making it a complete plant-based protein. Per gram, hemp has more protein than beef, chicken, eggs, cheese or almonds.

Hemp also contains Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), zinc, iron, folic acid, phosphorus, and magnesium and it’s low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and carbohydrates.

Taste & Versatility

It all starts with our Canadian-grown hemp seeds which can be hulled to make Hulled Hemp Seeds (hemp hearts), pressed to extract Hemp Oil, milled into Hemp Flours and Hemp Protein Powders, or toasted and eaten whole. The versatility of hemp makes it ideal for many value-added products.

Hemp Seeds have a slightly nutty taste similar to a sunflower seed or pine nut, and a soft, buttery texture.

Because of hemp’s mild taste, it pairs well with both sweet and savory flavors and can be added to a variety of products including bars, baked goods, non-dairy beverages, and salad dressings.

Hemp is a great choice for allergen-friendly products as it’s free of all major allergens and can be used as a nut replacement in product formulations.

Hemp can be added to any product formulation for protein, omegas, fiber, and a delicious nutty taste.
