The sprouted hemp seed allows your body to utilize the nutrients better. In the germination process, some of the seed's protective substances are removed, and thus absorption is better. The seeds are germinated under controlled conditions in a three-step process: first they are soaked, then germinated and finally dried. This is how the seed is activated. Some of the seeds may be slightly opened. During germination, the taste of the seed softens and becomes crunchy.
- The germination of the seed, i.e. its activation, makes the seeds many times more effective
- Germination breaks down the seed's protein reserves, making it form smaller molecules, and thus the solubility of the proteins improves. Thus, the protein's amino acids are more easily utilized in metabolism
- The nutrients are in a more absorbable form
- Sprouting makes the inside of the seed softer, the shell more crunchy and overall sweeter in taste
Hemp seed with an almost complete nutritional content does not deserve the superfood title for nothing. Hemp seeds are an excellent source of protein, containing all 8 essential amino acids for our body and 12 other amino acids.
In addition, it contains only good vegetable oils, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in a perfect ratio of 1:3 for humans. Hemp seed is also one of the few seeds that contains gamma linolenic acid (GLA) 4% and stearidonic acid (SDA) 2%, which are very valuable for the human body.
The seed also contains plenty of vitamin E and magnesium.
Taste: Mild nutty taste.
Usage: The seeds are good for snacking on their own or lightly roasted in a pan. They can be added to porridge, smoothies, yogurt, salad, and used in food preparation and baking.
