Title: Hemp seeds; most nutritionally complete food source
Post by: naroz on October 13, 2007, 10:46:00 AM
http://www.ratical.org/renewables/hempseed1.html (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.

"Czechoslovakia Tubercular Nutritional Study, 1955", hmmmmmmmm. Well, then all for it. I'm sure those Czechoslovakians know what their doing. Where can I get some?
