What are Hemp Hearts?
Hemp hearts are the edible insides of hemp seeds. They have many health benefits because of their high and diverse nutritional content. They are packed with protein, contain omega 6 and omega 3 and fibre. A 30 gram serving has 10 grams of protein and 10 grams of Omega 3 and 6.
Hemp hearts are lower in carbs than flax and chia; they are raw, vegan friendly and Non-GMO. Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts are only grown in Canada and manufactured in their own hemp dedicated facility in Manitoba Manitoba Hemp Hearts which means there will be no cross contamination with any other products.
They are super easy to eat as they do not need to ground up. You can sprinkle them on salads, yogurt, cereal, savoury dishes like salmon and steaks, add them into smoothies, bake with them or just eat them as is. The options are endless.
I found them to have a nutty flavour. The texture is soft and delicate with a slight crunch. I like to add them to my smoothies and when I'm in a rush I just sprinkle them onto my yogurt to give if a bit of crunch. My kids love them too. I put the hemp hearts into a shaker and they love to sprinkle them on their meals. It's a great way for them to get all the health benefits and they have fun.
