Hemp is a plant, which grows naturally in many temperate climates across the globe. Historically, the seed has been harnessed by a variety of cultures, including ancient Indians, Mesopotamians, Sumerians, Persians, Egyptians and indigenous tribes of Central America for an assortment of uses since the Stone Age. Recently however, the seed has gained a reputation as a remarkable Superfood, not only full of rich, nutty flavour, but also boasting a diverse range of nutrients. Sevenhills Wholefoods Hemp Seeds contain all of the essential amino acids in a ratio closer to meat and eggs than other seeds, and in much more nutritionally significant amounts. Hemp Seeds contain essential fatty-acids, with an ideal omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. The seeds are also a natural source of minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Phosphorus and Potassium, which are known to be essential for proper red-blood cell formation, healthy oxygen transit and maintaining an efficiently-functioning immune system. Hemp Seed is a versatile food. We recommend sprinkling our seeds on salads, using as a baking ingredient, or incorporating into breakfast cereals.
