Hemp Hearts

"At Manitoba Harvest we are passionate about hemp foods & nutrition, and appreciate forums & people like you that help educate others on hemp foods. Featuring Hemp Hearts is a terrific idea! Hemp Hearts taste great, are easy to use, and soooo good for you! 

The soft seeds taste a bit like the love-child on pine nuts and sunflower seeds. Sprinkle on top of cereal, salad, yogurt, or pretty much anything. Add to smoothies, or recipes. Or, simply eat straight from the bag. Per 30g serving, Hemp Hearts offers 10g easy to digest protein and 10g of omegas. (Note: hemp is a complete plant-based protein source). Included in hemp's omegas is the rare omega-6, GLA. GLA helps with: skin & hair health, heart health, blood pressure, and inflammation. Hemp Hearts is also rich in magnesium - "mother nature's muscle relaxant." www.manitobaharvest.com

Organic Hemp Hearts are available in: 7oz, 12 oz, 5lb


We love hemp hearts as a topping for salads, smoothies, or on top of yogurt. Because hemp seeds have such a mild, unobtrusive flavor, they keep a low profile and can easily hide in a number of dishes. They produce a smooth, white, nutty flavored seed meal! Smoothies are a great way to sneak hemp into your diet. Hemp Seeds are also great in dishes like chili, oatmeal, bean soups... 
These Hemp Seeds are ready to eat straight from the bag and there is no need to grind the seed. Such an easy way to incorporate nutrition into your diet. 
Hemp seeds contain 6 immune-boosting essential fatty acids found in perfect ratio for human consumption. The protein content consists of 65% of the most digestible form of protein, meaning that it is absorbed easily by the body and is therefore a great source or protein for vegans and vegetarians. They also contain 9 essential amino acids along with carotene, vitamin C, E, B1, B2, B3 and B6. The mineral content includes phosphorus, calcium, potassium, magnesium, silica, and iron. Hemp seeds also have been found to stimulate the growth of hair and nails, improve skin health, and to reduce inflammation. 
We highly recommend Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts! Manitoba Harvest sells their hemp products including hemp oil, hemp protein, hemp hearts etc. They also provide information about the company, testimonials, and recipes incorporating hemp seeds.
