Severing: On top of salads, or in my vinaigrettes. In my chia seed spread for sandwiches. Smoothies.
Beingtricia: I always have them on hand. Great to add to anything. Salads. Smoothies. Avocado. Veggies. Easy to make hemp milk too.
Feelmyspinee: With pasta sauce! They add some nuttiness to the dish. Very yum.
Nephriticus: On top of salad, rice, smoothies. Mum is obsessed with the crunch.
Kpaide: In yogurt and smoothies. Great stuff. Keep in fridge.
Tismejenny: I make hemp milk and add it raw to smoothies and the like. Love this brand in particular.
Wellnesstwin_marcella: Add it to my cauliflower for mock mashed potato. Salad dressing with garlic, olive oil, lemon, honey. Add it to my smoothies and oatmeal in the morning. Or to homemade granola.
Hungryrunner: I’ve been topping my oatmeal with them. I love @wellnesstwin_marcella’s idea for the cauliflower mashed potato add-in too!
Fernolivia: For an easy lunch, I sprinkle extra virgin olive oil over greens and top with hemp hearts. I take them with me in my bag everywhere, along with Himalayan sea salt. No joke. I am known to order a simple salad at the bar (because it is the only healthy, plant-based option) and ask for avocado if they have it, and I get all my proteins and minerals with my carry-on toppings! It’s an absolute staple of mine!
Mandyvelahuff: I use them in my chia seed pudding. So super power, delicious!
Jartumbler: So good in smoothies! Yum. And sprinkled on protein pancakes just before flipping to the second side.
PamelayLong: Add them to quinoa flakes or oatmeal, I also sprinkle on almond or coconut yogurt for a yummy and nutritious snack.
MarissaVicario: Just sprinkle on salads and in smoothies no cooking necessary.
Emmyparr: I have hemp hearts in my refrigerator right now! They are great in a kale salad, dressed with extra-virgin olive oil/lemon. Simple is good.
Kattancock: Don’t cook them! I use them in smoothies, in salads, added to oatmeal before I eat it.

Organic hulled hemp seeds are a delicious, nutritious and versatile food. Originating in Central Asia, hemp cultivation became popular in Europe during the Middle Ages. In the 1500s, it was planted in Chile, and a century later, in North America. Considered to be one of the most nutritious plants in the world, hemp can be cultivated to make a wide variety of products. These products include superfoods, fabrics, natural remedies and more.
The edible seeds of the hemp plant can be shelled or unshelled. Shelled hemp seeds, often referred to as hemp hearts, are a health food that can be consumed raw. They contain all of the essential amino acids and are an ideal source of protein for vegans and raw foodies. They also have a rich nutritional profile and provide a range of great health benefits. Hemp seeds abound not only in protein, but in fibre and fatty acids. They contain omega-3s and omega-6s and have antioxidant properties.
How to Use
Hemp seeds can be eaten raw, ground to make hemp meal or sprouted. Similar to chia seeds, they can be added to smoothies, cereals, salads and yogurt. They can also be incorporated into baked good recipes, such as muffins or cakes. Hemp seeds are often used in raw recipes, or cooked at low temperatures. Cooking at low temperature will preserve its rich omega oils. Hemp seeds are a great addition to cereals, porridges and superfood ‘wake-up’ bowls. Alternatively, hemp seeds can be used to create creamy salad dressings or blended into hemp seed milk.
Hemp seeds are harvested with a combine tractor, dried and cleaned to remove stocks, leaves and immature seeds. They are then passed through a hulling machine which removes a layer of shell skin protecting the seed. At the end of the process, only the insides of the seeds remain. They are cleaned and kept cool in grain bins until they are shipped.
Store in a cool, dry place, and keep out of direct sunlight.
Ask in-store. See the bag.
