Organic Hemp Hearts from Manitoba Harvest


Sourcing out high quality, vegan protein has become a mission of mine.  I was delighted to discover organic, raw hemp hearts from Manitoba Harvest.  Hemp is quickly becoming known as a highly sustainable plant for nutrition and consumer products (like clothing).  After reviewing the overall health benefits of hemp, I am now hooked and look forward to integrating hemp hearts, hemp protein, and hemp oil into my regular nutrition plan.

Why Organic Hemp Hearts?
Organic Hemp Hearts are packed full of protein with 10 grams of plant-based protein per 30 gram serving size. Hemp Hearts are a great way to get an ideal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3‘s including the rare EFA known as Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA). Testimonials from Manitoba Harvest have shown that GLA alone helps with arthritis, joint mobility, eczema, hormonal balance, migraines, menopause in women, healthy cholesterol & blood pressure levels and even weight management.

Hemp food is extremely easy to digest. Hemp foods contain vitamins, chlorophyll, fibre, calcium and are rich in folic acid.  Did you know Dr. Oz even refers to Hemp Hearts as ‘Brain Food’?

Hemp hearts are about the size of raw sesame seeds and have a soft texture.  They have a mild, distinct nutty flavour.  They are excellent for sprinkling on salads, on oatmeal, on rice or quinoa dishes, and for mixing into smoothies.  If you are eating clean, only cooking with minimal ingredients, or looking for a way to add EFAs, protein & omega-3 & omega-6 into your diet, then hemp hearts and hemp products can be a great addition to your nutrition routine.
