Finnish hemp seed is one of the most nutritious seeds in the plant. The seed contains the right proportions of proteins, omega, fiber and minerals. It is easy to use because the seed is suitable for use as an adjunct to almost anything. A very good raw material for a ketogenic diet due to its really low carbohydrate content.
Taste: crisp fibrous rind, soft nutty interior.
Hemp seed contains all eight essential amino acids for our body, as well as 12 other amino acids. Hemp seed also contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in perfect proportions for humans (1: 3). It is also one of the few seeds with leafy green as well as valuable gammalinolenic acid (GLA) 4% and stearidonic acid (SDA) 2%. The seed also contains three times more vitamin E than flax seed.
The taste of hemp seed is a bit nutty. The seeds are good as such for snacking or lightly roasted in a pan. They can also be used for porridge, smoothie, yogurt, salad, cooking and baking. If you wish, you can also germinate them.
