Hemp seeds are the new super food in the seed world. Although they are full of healthy nutrients and add a unique flavour to dishes, most of us do not use them in our kitchen. It's time to change that!

Hemp seeds - the healthiest in the world!

They are a source of protein

Proteins are one of the most complete proteins in the plant food kingdom, containing all of the best known amino acids (the building blocks of proteins). Protein is responsible for the production of neurotransmitters - the primary internal messaging highway that sends signals throughout the body to function properly. Hemp seeds contain almost as much protein as soy. There is 9.46 g of protein in every 30 grams of seed, or about 3 tablespoons.

Hemp seeds are a valuable addition to a vegetarian or vegan diet, they are rich in an amino acid called arginine which is beneficial for the heart.

They contain the necessary fats in perfect proportions

Hemp seeds naturally contain the perfect ratio (3: 1) of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids - a unique achievement in the plant world. These compounds have been shown to have a particularly beneficial effect on our health.

Hemp seeds are an excellent source of essential fatty acids such as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). The body cannot create them itself, so it has to absorb them from food, and they are essential for long-term health. In addition, hemp seeds are low in saturated fat and contain no trans fats.

They are an excellent source of GLA (gamma-linolenic acid)

Hemp is an excellent source of GLA that has been shown to help people with skin conditions, premenstrual syndrome, menopause, cancer, heart disease, arthritis, and has good anti-inflammatory properties.

They also contain a lot of fibre

Like most plant foods, hemp seeds are rich in soluble and insoluble fibre. Fibre naturally keeps your colon clean and satiated while helping to reduce your cravings for sugar. Even shelled hemp seeds are an excellent source of fibre, and three tablespoons contain about 1.2 g of fibre.

They are rich in antioxidants

Hemp seed is rich in the antioxidant vitamin E. It has also been found to contain tocopherol, which is beneficial for both Alzheimer's disease and atherosclerosis. Phytol is another powerful hemp seed antioxidant known to have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties.

They contain minerals and vitamins

Hemp seeds contain an impressive range of vitamins and minerals, they are particularly rich in:
- vitamin E
- magnesium
- phosphorus
- potassium

They are a good source of iron, zinc, and B vitamins, including:

- niacin
- riboflavin
- thiamine
- vitamin B-6
- folic acid
