Superfood 101: Hemp Seed
Did you know that this ancient food can be traced back thousands of years to Chinese, Egyptian, Persian and other cultures, where it was a highly revered food source? Did you also know that early American settlers were given free land to grow hemp? This historic super-food has been making a strong comeback and for obvious reasons; it’s a powerful nutritional support to any diet!
Our Healthworks Hemp Seeds are loaded with Omega 3, 6, high-fiber, magnesium, amino acids and essential fats making them an excellent raw and all-natural superfood! They are also an excellent of protein for everyone - mothers, babies, bodybuilders, and seniors!
The seeds can be eaten raw, ground into a meal, made into hemp milk (similar to soy or almond milk), sprinkled onto food (like cereal, yogurt and toast), prepared as tea and used in baking for breads, muffins, and cookies! Check out our favorite hemp seed recipes HERE!
Hemp seeds are also a great option for those unable to tolerate nuts, gluten, lactose or sugar since there are no known allergies to hemp foods.
As with all of our other delicious products, our hemp seeds are hand selected from small sustainable farmers to provide a truly exquisite seed to your front door.
