A seed of Cannabis Sativa L, hemp is a non-drug variety of cannabis. This remarkable “superfood” is an excellent protein source embodying essential amino acids. Technically a nut, hemp seeds are an optimum source for fatty acids including omega 3-6-9 and vital minerals. The two main proteins in hemp seed are Edestin and Albumin. These high-quality storage proteins are easily digested and contain nutritionally significant amounts of amino acids. A traditional oriental medicine, clinical trials have identified hemp seeds as a functional food and an important food resource. Reminiscent of a sunflower seed, raw hemp seeds are selected for the finest quality and then pressed at 43°C to separate the hemp oil from the solids to form a paste. Once the paste has dried into cake, it is stone ground to hemp powder. The hemp powder is sifted to reduce fiber content whilst preserving the high proportion of protein.
