- Seeds chosen from farmers with integrity but without organic certification
- Australian Company
- Canadian Grown Hemp Seed
A premium variety hulled hemp seed sourced from farmers with integrity but who have not gone through the expensive organic certification process. Hemp is one of only a few complete plant protein sources and is rich in the perfect balance of Omega 3-6-9 fatty acids.
Hemp seeds contain approx 25% protein, 31% fat, 34% carbohydrates and an array of vitamins and minerals. It contains the 18 key amino acids including the 10 that our bodies cannot produce. The protein in hemp is free of the tryspin inhibitors that block protein absorption and free of oligosaccharides found in soy (another complete plant based protein source) which can cause stomach upset and gas.
Since hemp is sensitive to both light & oxygen, Made In Hemp products are stored in keep fresh, re-sealable packs which don't allow in any light. Food grade nitrogen removes the oxygen from the packs at the point of manufacture.
Note: Australian legislation currently prohibits the sale of hemp products as a food. In Australia, the products can be used topically or you can feed them to pets. If you live outside Australia or New Zealand, most likely, the law in your country allows hemp products to be sold as food. There are many people in the health food industry lobbying for the law to be changed. In November 2017, a new law will come in to effect to make them a legal food for human consmption.
