Manitoba Harvest Organic Hemp Hearts
- Nutritious - Straight from the Bag!
- No need to grind the seed as they are ready to eat straight from the bag.
- Make it easy to add omegas, protein & fiber straight into your diet.
- Very best and most nutritious part of the hemp seed, the heart.
By shelling the hemp seed, you get only the center, with its raw nutrition, rich nutty flavor and tender crunch. So easy to use, eat them straight out of the package or sprinkle on anything - salad, cereal or yogurt. The only limit is your imagination!
Unlike some other seeds, there is no need to grind Hemp Hearts to get at the incredible nutrition. They are full of protein with 10 grams of complete plant-based protein per 30 gram (3 tablespoons) serving size. Hemp Hearts are also a great way to add omegas or EFAs (essential fatty acids) to your diet. According to the World Health Organization, the ideal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 EFAs is 4:1 and the naturally occurring ratio in Hemp Hearts is 3.75:1. Hemp Hearts contain more protein and Omega-6 & 3 and less carbs than a similar serving of Chia or Flax.
