Hemp seeds are nature's perfect food source bringing to your diet an abundance of essential nutrients to promote optimal health. In its organic natural state hemp seeds are considered by many to be the safest, most digestible, balanced, sustainable, natural and complete source of protein, amino acids and essential fats found anywhere in nature!
Raw hemp seeds go through a process called de-hulling to remove the outer shell, leaving the delicious edible centre known as hemp hearts.
With a mild "nutty" flavour, similar to cashews or pine nuts (but unique in their own right!), hemp hearts will take your dish to the next level!
Hemp hearts are low in THC (the psychoactive substance found in the Cannabis plant). Consuming hemp hearts will not get you "high", nor will you fail a drug test!
