Our raw Hemp Hearts, aka Shelled Hemp Seeds, are a must for raw foodists, vegans, and vegetarians. The hemp heart has a unique amino acid profile: It contains all the amino acids—very uncommon for plant protein sources. Hemp hearts are thus a fabulous nutrient for people who want to lead an active lifestyle and whose diet is either exclusively or primarily plant-based. They’re great, too, for those following the paleo diet and for anyone who’s carb-conscious.
Hemp hearts have a concentrated balance of proteins, vitamins, essential fats, and enzymes. No troublemakers like sugar, starch, and saturated fats in here! Just two tablespoons of hemp hearts deliver 6 grams of fat (including 882 milligrams of alpha lipoic acid or ALA), plus 5 grams of protein, and 2 grams of fiber. Every serving of hemp hearts also provides a perfect balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Moreover, you’ll also get a good slug of vitamins such as A, B, E and D and minerals such as magnesium, sodium, calcium and iron. (16 oz/1 lb bag).
These Manitoba Harvest Raw Hemp Hearts hail from Canada.
