About Hemp Seeds Hulled Organic
Hemp is widely considered to be among the most sustainable plants on the planet. It doesn’t deplete the soil, as some crops can, and it can easily be cultivated in a variety of places. It grows quickly and is quite hardy as a plant, able to withstand disease and pests. Although derived from the cannabis sativa plant, you won’t get high from hemp seeds as they don’t have significant psychoactive properties.
Hemp is also considered one of the world’s most nutritious plants and that’s why is considered a superfood. The seeds contain all of the essential amino acids, making them an ideal source of protein for vegans and raw foodists. The essential fatty acids (both Omega-3s and Omega-6s) are abundant in hemp seeds and come in a high ratio. Magnesium, iron, and potassium are in good supply along with fiber. Some of hemp seed’s supply of antioxidants comes from its vitamin E content.
Storage and shelf life
Store hemp seeds in a cool, dry, airtight container, away from the sunlight and heat. It’s a good idea to store in the refrigerator too, the coolness helps the seeds maintain freshness and allows them to last longer.
Hemp seeds, when stored properly, will keep their taste and texture for up to 1 year.
