The hardy plant has been used as a food, fiber, textile, paper, and even fuel. It is believed that Tibetan women first discovered how to produce string and cloth from the hemp fiber. Nutrition experts tout hemp seed because it is an easily-digested complete protein source that is also one of the richest vegetable sources of the Omega 3 & 6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs). Hemp seed contains chlorophyll and is a plentiful source of fiber and vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, iron, zinc, and potassium.For optimum health, Omega-6 and Omega-3 need to be consumed in a certain ratio. Nutrition experts recommend hemp seed due to its ideal 3 to 1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 EFAs. Hemp seed oil is a rare food source of the super omega-3 called stearidonic acid (SDA) that is the'first metabolite' in the omega-3 family and therefore easy for the body to process. Its also a plentiful and rare plant source of the'super omega-6' EFA called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). There are only 4 significant natural sources of GLA: Hemp Seed, Evening Primrose, Borage and Black Currant, and of these, hemp seed is the only whole food source that has a wide variety of culinary functions.
Hemp is enjoyed all over the world. Tibetans use hempseed in their yak buttered tea. If you dont have a yak, dont worry, we have other recipe ideas here on our website! Navitas Naturals shelled hemp seeds have a soft texture, look a bit like sesame seeds, and have a nutty flavor like sunflower seeds. You can snack on them straight from the bag, or boost the nutrition and flavor of any meal by sprinkling them on just about anything including granola, yogurt and salads.
We suggest that you blend them into soups and dips, or add them to baking recipes in place of other soft seeds. Theyre also ideal as a smoothie ingredient, or blended into a gourmet nut butter.
