These steps ensure freshness and help protect the delicate Omega-3 fatty acids. It's part of Nutiva's commitment to "Nourishing People and Planet."
Hempseed is considered by leading researchers and medical doctors to be one of the most nutritious food sources on the planet. Shelled hempseeds are 33% protein, with Omega-3 and GLA-the healthy EFAs doctors recommend.
Hemp also contains three times the vitamin E contained in flax. Unlike soy, hemp is not genetically modified, and it doesn't contain the anti-nutritional qualities commonly found in soy.
Eat 3 tablespoons daily by adding them to smoothies, cereal, omelets, yogurt, soups, salads, and veggies. Consider lightly pan-toasting the seeds-but not above 325 F, to conserve the EFAs.
OMEGAS Per 3 tbs:
- 7.5g Omega-6 LA
- 3.0g Omega-3 ALA
- 0.6g Super Omega-6 GLA
- 0.3g Super Omega-3 SDA
Shelled hemp seeds (or hempnuts) taste similar to sesame or sunflower seeds or pine nuts and can be added to almost any recipe.
Ingredients: 100% Raw certified organic shelled hemp seeds.
It is best to keep Nutiva Seeds refrigerated and air tight. If you purchase a bulk 3-pound bag, consider adding a pound to a container for daily use, and seal up the 2-pound bag and place it in the freezer. This will help protect the seed quality.
Refrigerate and use within eight to twelve weeks of opening.
