Nutiva Organic, Shelled Hempseed from non-GMO, Sustainably Farmed Canadian Hemp is the richest known source of polyunsaturated fats, containing a perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 linoleic acid and Omega-3 linoleic acid. In fact, the hempseed's balance of Omega 3 to 6 fats is the perfect proportion for human dietary needs, making hemp an ideal addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle. Hemp is loaded with all 20 amino acids (including the nine essential), and provides the added bonus of good-for-you essential fatty acids. Unlike other hemp products on the market, Nutiva Organic, Raw, Shelled Hempseed is all natural. At Nutiva, we start with organic, non-GMO, sustainably grown hempseeds. We simply remove the seeds' hard shells, yielding a 100% raw culinary product that tastes like pine nuts, supplying raw organic protein and healthy fiber in every serving. Nutiva Organic, Raw, Shelled Hempseed is a healthful addition to vegetarian, vegan, raw, whole food, paleo, ketogenic, and gluten-free diets, just right for sprinkling over yogurt or salads, adding to shakes and smoothies, or including in baked or sautéed dishes. They even make a great snack right out of the bag! Nutiva was founded in 1999 with a single purpose in mind - to Revolutionize the Way the World Eats.
