Raw hemp hearts could be one of nature's most perfect foods. They have grown in popularity in the United States only since the early 1990s, but they are an ancient food, which can be traced back thousands of years to Chinese, Egyptian, Persian, and other cultures, where they were a highly revered food source.
Raw hemp hearts are about 35 percent protein, in an easily digestible form. They have a complete protein, which contains all nine essential amino acids.
Raw hemp hearts are truly a superfood, providing a perfect balance of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. These fatty acids promote heart health, lower triglycerides, work to reduce inflammation, promote brain health, and support the immune system. In addition, raw hemp hearts are one of only a few sources of beneficial gamma linolenic acid (GLA) and stearidonic acid (SDA).
Hemp hearts are naturally sugar free and are very low in total carbohydrates; thus they are ideal for those following the paleo diet or who need to be carbohydrate conscious for their health. Raw hemp hearts are also high in fiber.
Raw hemp hearts are free of the common allergens associated with soy, dairy, gluten, and tree nuts.
Along with the protein, essential fatty acids, and fiber, raw hemp hearts are also rich in antioxidants, such as vitamin E, and minerals, including magnesium, iron, and zinc.
