Our Organic Shelled Hempseed contains 33% protein by weight, along with Omega-3s and minerals. With a delicious, nutty flavor that's similar to pine nuts, it's perfect for salads, smoothies, sprinkled on your favorite foods or even enjoyed straight out of the bag.
Rich in protein, omega-fatty acids and fiber, Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed is loaded with all 20 amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids that the body does not manufacture and can only be derived from food. Our Organic Hemp Seed contains the perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 linoleic acid and Omega-3 linoleic acid. This densely nutritious food is an excellent addition to the diet of anyone looking for plant-based protein, and is preferred by many vegetarians and vegans. Hemp protein is very digestible, making it a great choice for sensitive diets.
