Hemp seeds; most nutritionally complete food source
« on: October 13, 2007, 10:46:00 AM »
http://www.ratical.org/renewables/hempseed1.html is the quite the read. I wasn't aware of the nutritional properties of hemp seeds until my aunt brought a container of the stuff from Canada at Christmas. It's a great boost of energy in the morning and it stays with me for most of the day.  I drape it on some cereal in the morning, mix it in with some yogurt or put some on a slice of peanut butter, or jam or whatever.. It's nutritious and delicious. You can buy it in bulk on Amazon(5lbs for 40 something bucks). I have the Hemp Hearts brand, but it's all the same...

Hemp Hearts brand;
A 42 g serving (4 tbsp) contains 240 cal energy from 15 g protein, 15 g polyunsaturated fats ( 11.4 g omega 6 & 3.6 g omega 3), 2.7 g mono-unsaturated fats, 2.1 g saturated fats, 2.5 g fiber, 4.5 g carbohydrates, 2 mg iron, 31 mg calcium, 3.8 mg sodium, 3.8 mg vitamin E, 956 IU vitamin D, .42 mg vitamin C, .05 mg vitamin B6, .14 mg vitamin B2, .58 mg vitamin B1, 1.68 IU vitamin A.
