HEAVENLY HEMP FOOD PRODUCTS
Hemp seed is the most nutritionally complete seed on the planet. Our food products are made with hemp flour and/or hemp oil. The hemp seeds are pressed to remove the seed oil and grind and sift the remaining meal to produce hemp flour. The flour is high in protein and essential fatty acids. So not only are our food products delicious, they are good for you too!
We use only the finest ingredients and freshest hemp seed imported from Canada.
What is Hemp?
Hemp is a variety of Cannabis sativa that contains no psychoactive properties and is grown for fiber and seed production. It can be used to make over 25,000 different products, including textiles, paper, paint, particle board, plastics, cordage, and food.
Hemp has a history of human use over 10,000 years old, but is currently illegal to cultivate in the U.S., making us the only industrialized country in the world that does not allow its farmers to grow this beneficial crop. Fortunately, products made from hemp are completely legal to import and sell in the U.S.
How do you process the seeds?
The hemp seeds we use in our food products are imported from Canada and are sterilized so they will not grow. The hemp grain is pressed using a cold expeller press to extract the seed oil, which comprises 30% of the weight of the seed. After the oil has been removed, a seed "cake" remains. This cake is ground and sifted to produce a fine hemp flour.
How healthy is hemp grain?
Hemp seed is the most nutritionally complete seed on the planet for human consumption. Hemp seed contains 25% protein. This protein is more easily digestible than the protein in soybeans because it conatins a perfect ratio essential fatty acids (EFA's). EFA's are important for strengthening your immune system and protecting you from disease. Fish oil and flax oil are also high in EFA's, but hemp contains the most perfect ratio of EFA's for human consumption. Hemp seed is also high in iron and calcium.
What does it taste like?
Hemp seeds have a
nutty flavor. When processed into flour and mixed with wheat or corn flour,
the taste of the seeds is subtle, but provides hemp foods with a hearty
and healthy flavor. Some say it "tastes like freedom."
