Where to get raw organic hemp seeds
I usually buy my raw organic hulled hemp seeds at an organic store in Germany or oder them online when travelling. You can find them here online.
Hulled and unhulled hemp seeds
For my recipes, I usually use hulled organic. They are the best choice for milks, sauces, burgers. Unhulled hemp seeds are a great add on in raw chocolates.
The best hemp seeds
When buying hemp butter at your local health food store or online, make sure it’s made from whole hemp seeds and isn’t just the oil.
Does it always have to be organic?
I always buy organic and I make no exemption when buying hemp products. Organic is not only a better choice for me but also for the environment and the people who grow hemp seeds. They would otherwise come in contact with toxic pesticides and herbicides.
Health benefits of hemp seeds
Hemp seeds contain more than 30% oil and about 25% protein, some fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Hemp is an excellent source of protein and omega-3 source.
Hemp contains two linoleic acids: omega-6 and omega-3.
The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 in hemp oil is usually between 2:1 and 3:1, which is considered optimal for human health.
The main proteins in hemp are edestin and albumin. These high-quality proteins are easily digested and contain significant amounts of essential amino acids. In addition, hemp has exceptionally high levels of the amino acid arginine.
