Hemp is considered one of the world's most nutritious plants. The rich nutty taste adds flavour to baked goods, smoothies, salads and more. Hemp: A Super Plant from Food to Fabrics and Beyond One of the earliest domesticated plants known, the entire hemp plant is really a super plant. Hemp contains no psychoactive substances. What it does contain is a nutrition juggernaut of up to 35% protein, all 9 essential amino acids, omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, phytonutrients and minerals including calcium, magnesium and potassium. Hemp seed delivers the highest levels of essential fatty acids of any plant in a ratio exactly suited to the bodies needs. It also contains all 9 of the essential amino acids (proteins) needed to maintain good health and is easily digested and absorbed by the body, which makes it a perfect vegetarian alternative to meat protein. They have a buttery, nutty taste that kids of all ages love. Kids love these seeds too, so they're a great way to help kids get the nutrients they need. . Hemp seed is also gluten-free. Enjoy hemp seeds as a snack, in baked goods, to top yogurts, pureed into hummus along with chickpeas for added nutrition, in smoothies, on salads and more.
