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 is suitable for people with gluten or lactose intolerance as well as various ethnic and religious dietary requirements. It’s also a great choice for children and pregnant women because of its high natural concentration of vitamin B1 and folate. Ideal for vegans, and any other plant-based eating regime.
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.
