Natural source of omega-6 linoleic acid and omega-3 linolenic acid
Hemp seed has been called nature's perfect food for the simple fact that it contains more nutrition ounce for ounce than almost any other food source on earth. Hemp seed also delivers plant-based vitamins, minerals, fiber and essential fatty acids (EFAs). In fact, hemp seed's EFA profile is 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3, which is the recommended ratio for optimal health. Hemp seed delivers particularly noteworthy levels of linoleic acid (omega-6) and linolenic acid (omega-3) not commonly found in other plant oils. Hemp is also a natural source of complete protein (including all essential amino acids), which is unusual in the plant kingdom. Our Certified Organic Non-GMO Shelled Hemp Seed is packed fresh on the pristine Canadian prairies where the world's finest hemp is grown. Our whole seeds have a light, nutty flavor that complements a wide variety of recipes and smoothies.
