Hemp based nutrition becoming more popular amongst health food enthusiasts. Hemp seeds are an optimal source of protein, omegas 3 & 6, essential fatty acids, zinc, iron, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, gamma linolenic acid (GLA), vitamin E and more. Dr. Oz and Dr. Mercola promote the benefits of hemp in our diet because of the robust vitamins and nutrients that it contains.
Hemp oil can be used for cooking, salad dressing, and substituted or blended with olive and other cooking oils. Hemp flour is produced from the seed cake left over from pressing the seed for hemp oil. That flour can be infused into main stream products to increase protein content; breads, cereals, muffins, cakes, waffles, pancakes, protein bars, vegie burgers, cookies and so much more. Hemp milk can be substituted for animal and nut milks. Hemp nut can be added to cereal, ice cream, salads and a variety of other foods.
Hemp can also be used to enhance protein and nutrient content in pet food and livestock feed. Anecdotally we already know that livestock with hemp introduced into their diet are healthier, their joints, teeth, coats, eyes and ears all improve.
Hemp seed has numerous health benefits that have been ignored or even suppressed in the past because it comes from the same plant that also contains naturally occurring THC. Marijuana contains approximately 5-30% of THC, whereas industrial hemp only contains 0.3% THC or less – an amount that has been scientifically proven to have no psychoactive effect as marijuana use does. Hemp seeds are regularly
compared to superfoods like quinoa
and high-protein meat sources – the
highest compliment a seed could receive.
