Description

You have probably heard of hemp seed, also called hemp hearts, but have you ever tried them?

Hemp hearts are small, soft and nutty in flavour. They offer an easy was to add extra nutrients to just about any meal, including kids meals!

Be careful when purchasing hemp hearts as not all brands use Australian grown hemp seed. Always check the packet and buy Aussie to make sure you are supporting your Australian hemp industry.

Of course, Vasse Valley only use 100% Australian grown hemp seed! Yay!

Hemp hearts health benefits

Hemp seed is rich in highly digestible protein, meaning your body can absorb it easily. It is also a complete protein source, containing all the essential amino acids our body needs from our diet.

Hemp seeds are a great source of polyunsaturated and essential fatty acids, which are the healthy fats! In total they contain about 30% fat with unique 3:1 ratio of omega-6 and omega-3. This promotes cardiovascular health and may benefit some skin diseases.

Another essential fatty acid found in hemp seeds is Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which can have a hormone regulatory effect which may relieve symptoms of PMS.

Hemp seed also provides a source of vitamin E, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc.

How to use hemp hearts

Add to salads, smoothies, muesli, granola, yoghurt etc. Hemp hearts also make a tasty, dairy-free milk alternative which we love in coffee. The high protein content makes it froth beautifully. We’ve included a ‘hemp mylk’ recipe on the back of the packet for you.

  1. Erica

    I love raw hemp hearts! You can literally sprinkle some on anything to enhance flavour. The hemp milk you can make from the hearts is delicious in coffee and cooking.

  2. Charlie

    Excellent product that you can use in so many ways or raw.

  3. Chione

    I absolutely love these raw hemp hearts! I’ve been using them to add extra nutrients and healthy fats into my meals and baked goods and am yet to be disappointed – they work with everything!

    I am a repeat buyer for several reasons- to support local/Australian business as well as this is a superior product. I sprinkle this daily on my yoghurt and have been doing so for at least 6 weeks. I am sleeping better, feeling really healthy and the bowels have never been happier. Would thoroughly recommend. They taste nutty- similar to sunflower seeds but nicer.
