Our hemp seeds are sourced from Romania – one of the leading commercial producers of hemp in Europe. By focusing on just one raw material, our supplier has become extremely specialised in every step of the production process. Everything from the early selection of hemp seeds through to the storage and packaging of the final product. Another standout attribute of hemp is that 65% of its protein is a globulin called edestin which is a protein that also occurs in our blood. Globulins are used in the production of antibodies, which attack foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses.
QUALITY* Organic Vegan, Gluten Free and Kosher, these hemp seeds are tested for heavy metals, pesticides and microorganisms
BENEFITS* Our organic hulled hemp seeds are an excellent way to boost protein intake. The protein in hemp seeds is highly digestible with no association to intolerances such as wheat and soy. Unique in their composition of essential fatty acids, hemp seeds offer the optimal ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3 nutrients.
USAGE* People with gluten sensitivity can use hemp seeds as a substitute for breadcrumbs to coat chicken or fish. Just like you can blend almonds and water to make almond milk, you can do the same with hemp seeds for hemp seed milk, which you can use as an alternative to dairy milk in drinks and recipes.

NUTRITION* Additionally, Hemp is high in vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc.
HARVESTING* Harvesting hemp seed usually occurs in early October when the plant is roughly sixteen weeks old and when the flowers are ripe and full of seeds. By this time, most of the plant leaf matter has fallen to the ground where it will compost and give nutrients back to the soil for future years. Hemp seed is harvested with a combine tractor and, almost immediately, cleaned to remove any stocks, leaves, and immature seeds. The cleaned hemp seed is then stored in grain bins, where it is kept
