Nutiva Organic Hemp Seeds Nutiva
Organic Hemp Seeds

Hempseeds have an appealing nutty flavor and are a rich source of omega-3, vitamin E, protein, and GLA. Shelled hemp seeds (or hempnuts) taste similar to sesame or sunflower seeds, and can be added to almost any recipe.

To ensure freshness, Nutiva adds an oxygen absorber to each pouch, and fill's the bag with nitrogen. They are the only hemp firm we know of that does this. These steps help remove oxygen, and the delicate Omega-3 fats are protected. It's part of Nutiva's commitment to "Nourishing People and Planet". Nutiva uses a cold mechanical process to shell their hemp seeds which are grown without pesticides or herbicides. Because Nutiva can't grow hemp in the United States, they must rely on Canadian farmers to produce hemp crops. Shortages of organic seeds often occur due to weather or surging sales outstripping supply.

The Amazing Hempseed

The Origins

Hemp was cultivated in China more than 6,000 years ago, from a wild plant that grew in central Asia. The Chinese recognized hemp's amazing nutritional value, and used it as a food source long before soy foods. About a thousand years ago, hemp traveled to Europe, where peasants used the plant in several ways, one of the most popular being the making of hemp butter by grinding the tasty seeds.

A Nutritional Powerhouse

Hempseed is considered by leading researchers and medical doctors to be one of the most nutritious food sources on the planet. Shelled hempseed is packed with 33 percent pure digestible protein and is rich in iron and vitamin E as well as omega-3 and GLA. A recent report funded by the Canadian government states that hemp protein is comprised of 66 percent high-quality edistin protein, and that hempseed contains the highest percentage of this of any plant source. Hemp also contains three times the vitamin E contained in flax. Unlike soy, hemp is not genetically modified, and it doesn't contain the anti-nutritional qualities commonly found in soy.

Got Your EFAs today?

Because the human body produces no Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), it is important that EFAs be consumed on a regular basis. It is estimated that more than 90 percent of Americans take in too little of one of the most important EFAs--omega-3--which is found in flax, walnuts, deep-water fish, and hempseeds. EFAs are the "good fats" that doctors recommend as part of a healthy, balanced diet. The quality of omega-3 is vital, and can be diminished by oxygen, heat, and light. Thus consume the freshest seeds possible and store them in a dark, cold environment such as a refrigerator. Nutiva obtains its seeds exclusively from Canada, and we date all our products. Great nutrition never tasted so good.

Storage: It is best to keep our seeds refrigerated and air tight.
