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. raw organic hulled hemp seeds order online

The best hemp seeds

Hemp butter

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.

GREENWOODS RAW CAFE Store

This shop is attached to the Greenwoods Raw Cafe in the center of Hong Kong. They sell some organic fruits and veggies, the availability really depends on the season and the day of the week. We found some great raw products here like raw nut butter, raw dates, and organic raw nuts.

GREENWOODS RAW CAFE Store

There was some fruit like organic bananas, apples and dragon fruit, organic bell pepper, orgaic cucumber and greens. Also organic lemons. More fruit like oranges, coconuts and dates in the fridge.

They had a 5 years celebration and therefore everything was 20% off. Here are some beauty products, organic spices and organic nuts.

This farmers’ market is awesome and super central on the Hong Kong island on pier 7. All the produce is organic and the vendors super nice. The vibe is a little tense, the pace is fast.

Organic in Hong Kong

We are dedicated to eat all organic and always make sure to find the best places to shop for organic produce and snack wherever we go. We found lots of organic in Hong Kong. Here I’ll provide an overview, check the stores and markets for products and prices.

Before coming to Hong Kong we made sure there is enough organic in Hongkong to be found and made a list of shops and delivery services, so the day we arrived, we were able to pick up some produce without a long internet search and asking around. The thing with asking around anyways is that people who don’t care much about organic are unaware of its existence or simply assume everything at the fancier stores or fruit stools is organic. But as everywhere, organic in Hong Kong is only organic if it is CERTIFIED organic. Many organic products are imported Here in Hong Kong, some products are grown locally and have a USDA or Chinese certificate.

Organic Convenience Store in Hong Kong.

We also found a raw vegan restaurant, it uses (some) organic produce.

Keep in mind, we visited Hong Kong in November for 3 weeks, prices and availability can vary immensely between seasons. I always compare the prices and availability with Germany, Germany has a rather great availability of organic produce and very fair prices. In NYC we would spend at least twice as much as in Germany shopping at Wholefoods and Trader Joes, in LA the same amount money if shopping at an organic wholesale and 3 times as much as in Germany when shopping at Wholefoods. The most shocking is a very bad availability of local fruits, probably due to the season, the imported fruit is very expensive, bananas 11 HKD (~1€+/1$+) each. The greens and veggies, on the other hand, are easier to find and the local brands are not too pricey. The nuts and seeds are also easy to find, but the nuts are rarely raw. Cosmetics, cleaning stuff and detergent are easy to find as well at the health food stores. It was the easiest to get the produce at the supermarkets, but here, everything is wrapped in plastic. Farmers markets are far out and have only the seasonal local stuff which is great, but they are only 2 times a week. Health food stores are the best for treats, nut butter, vegan meat alternatives, and natural cleaning products.

Yata Supermarket

After going to the organic farmers market we passed through the mega mall on our way to the bus back home and discovered this large food supermarket and wanted to check out they organic options as we didn’t get everything we needed at the farmers’ market.

Organic fruit at the Yata Supermarket

The fruit display is beautiful, but only a few fruits are actually certified organic, let’s see which ones are.

Banans are certified organic and 17 HKD (1.90€/$2.17) for 3 bananas.

Here we have an overview of the biggest organic fridge in the store. There are some organic fruit, but mainly organic greens and organic veggies.

Organic papaya is around 50 HKD (5.60€/$6.38) for a kg, one fruit is about 1 kg. There are also organic limes, organic ginger, organic cucumbers, organic peas, organic baby corn and asparagus.

Here is the organic cabbage, bok choy, celery in the right corner and tomatoes on the left bottom. Everything around 30 HKD (~3€/$4).
Here is a large tomato display. The only organic tomatoes here are on the top right.

Organic greens at the Yata Supermarket

Organic greens and organic romaine hearts are around 60 HKD (~6€/$8).

Organic bell peppers are around 30 HKD for 2 pieces (~3€/$4).

Organic veggies at the Yata Supermarket

Here is another partially organic display in the middle of the store. There is organic pumpkin,  organic greens, organic red and white cabbage, and couple of other veggies I captured in following pics better. 

Organic reddish, egg plant, cucumbers and organic cherry tomatoes.

Organic pumpkin.
Organic baby asparagus.

Organic broccoli is around 35 HKD depending on the weight.


Orgnaic nappa cabbage is 25-35 HKD.


Organic burdock, whatever this is.

Durian at the Yata Supermarket

Durian is not organic, they just cut it open and I could take a look at the stems, there was no visible ripening agent on it. Doen’t mean the durians are not treated but ok for me as an exception, we bought one piece on Vietnam durian, the Malaysian was too expensive we found

Organic seeds, grains, and beans at the Yata Supermarket

Let’s move on to the dried goods. I couldn’t spot any canned goods such as organic beans, lentils, or tomatoes here.

Here is some organic black rice and organic millet.

Organic lentils, organic millet, and organic sesame.

Different varieties of organic quinoa and organic buckwheat.

Tai Po Farmers’ Market

Tai Po Farmers’ Market is an all organic farmers’ market located far outside the city center with a great selection of veggies even during the winter time. Held on Wednesdays 10AM-4PM and Sundays 9AM-5PM it’s a rather small farmers’ market, not because there are few farmers, but because they don’t have much produce and the produce is more or less the same, making the variety rather limited. We were hoping for some fruit, but not expecting much. We found dragon fruit and some ripe bananas and bought kale, lettuce, tomatoes and okra.



It’s next to the fire station. Pretty easy to find and to get to by train or bus.

How to find the store. It’s a little hidden on the first floor above the Tesla store. It’s the easiest to go up to the first floor in the building across the street (there is a Muji on the right in this one) and to cross the bridge in the first floor. The bridge is on the left around the corner.

I love how they promote the vegan burger “beyond meat burger”. Even I don’t eat processed cooked foods myself, I would definitely recommend to any meat eater in my life to try this burger.

The best fruit to buy on sale is persimmon and bananas, they look rotten to people before they actually go bad. Be careful with corn, sweet potatoes and mushrooms, there was actual mould on them.

Natures Village

We stubbled across this supplements store while walking in the hood. Not really worth checking out unless you are in the area anyway. We went to one shop, it’s a chain, the other shops might have a better organic selection.

Organic dried mulberries, flax, sesame seeds. Berry powders and raw cacao.

JustGreen

Stefan found a nice health food store chain in Hong Kong we wanted to check out. Even the first store was almost impossible to find, the selection of organic products was nit disappointing. The produce is however very limited, they only had organic avocados. The produce is better on Mondays and Wednesdays we were told.

After showing you the products, I’ll show you how to find the shop.

Organic at Wellcome

There are quite a few welcome markets all around Hong kong which make you hunt for organic produce so much easier. But keep in mind, not every single Wellcome Store will have organic products.
Today we went to this one near the Kennedy Town Train Station.

Organic at Great Food Hall Hong Kong

Great Food Hall organic produce in Hong Kong
They have a little of almost everything. We went to the Great Food Hall with a bigger backpack as we new they might have the best organic produce in town besides the farmers’ markets which were not happening that day anyway. The prices are as expected for imported foods astronomical. A little strange were the organic bananas for 110HKD (12€/$14) from Australia, don’t they get imported into Germany a well? Why are they in Germany around 2€ then.

It’s hidden in the Malls basement, ask for directions if you feel lost or check out the map in the mall.
Here is the fruit display, unfortunately nothing organic in here.

Here are avocados, wrapped in plastic so it’s hard to see them. The amounts of plastic used to wrap the produce, organic and non-organic are heartbreaking here.

Beens and lentils, some even salt free. But don’t let be fooled by the low sodium statement on the cans. The so called “low sodium” products usually contain salt. Look in the ingredients List for a product with no added salt at all.

Organic in Como

Organic Food Shopping in Como

We only accidentally discovered this amazing organic market hidden in the back of residential buildings. As we were driving around in search of a decent hotel, we passed the small street where there store was located and came back there later after we settled in. Unlike many places in Como, Naturasì has a great parking area for customers. The fruit and veggies selection was great (we were there in december). Super ripe delicious organic persimmons, tomatoes, lettuce and even some basic raw vegan bars.

So for the first couple of days, while the fruit is ripening, eating at a restaurant is an option. We totally recumbent checking out the Koko Green restaurant in Nice.

Farmers Market in Nice
We saw an organic stand with mostly veggies at the flower market. Not really worth relying on, but nice fresh option to stock up on seasonal local veggies.
