Dehulled hemp seeds (the whole seed without the mineral rich outer shell) are free from gluten, cholesterol, nuts, sodium, and lactose – and being plant based, it may be suitable for people with gluten or lactose intolerance as well as various ethnic and religious dietary requirements. Dehulled Hemp Seed is a low temperature dehulling temperature of no higher than 70°
Appearance: Small white nuts with some green skin flecks
Nutrition: Approximately 44% of the weight of hempseed is edible oils, containing about 80% essential fatty acids (EFAs); e.g., linoleic acid, omega-6 (LA, 55%), alpha-linolenic acid, omega-3 (ALA, 22%), in addition to gamma-linolenic acid, omega-6 (GLA, 1–4%) and stearidonic acid, omega-3 (SDA, 0–2%). Proteins (including edestin) are the other major component (33%). Hempseed’s amino acid profile is “complete” when compared to more common sources of proteins such as meat, milk, eggs and soy. Hemp protein contains all nutritionally significant amino acids, including the 9 essential ones adult bodies cannot produce. Proteins are considered complete when they contain all the essential amino acids in sufficient quantities and ratios to meet the body’s needs. The proportions of linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid in one tablespoon (15 ml) per day of the hempseed’s oil easily provides human daily requirements for EFAs.
Shelf Life: 12-14 months from the manufacturer date. Best if stored in cool, dry conditions (less than 20 degree F – 40 degree F), humidity between 30-50%. If optimal conditions are met and maintained a shelf life may be 14 months
Heavy Metal Testing: This test is conducted once a year for quality control purposes only.
Accreditation: Certified Organic & Kosher Certified
We process by cleaning the whole hemp grain first, then we remove the outer shell of the hemp grain through a low-heat, mechanical process. We ship across North America so therefore we provide the sterilized certificate by law in the United States where we ship it from Canada.
