Hemp Processing and Products

Whole Hemp Seeds

Available in sterilized, toasted, roasted and fractionalized (cracked) forms, they are rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. They can be cold-pressed for oil, or hulled to expose the seed meat. Hempseeds are the only edible seeds with gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).

Hulled Hemp Seed

Hemp seed is a highly nutritious source of protein, better tasting and more digestible than the soybean.

Whole hemp seeds can be toasted for snack food or ground into flour. Hulled hemp seed are a healthful component of baked goods, snack and protein bars, granola, sauces and dips.

Very versatile, hulled hemp seeds can even be processed into milk, cheese, ice cream, margarine and other foods. Most bird seed contains hemp seed and it makes an excellent ingredient in many pet and animal foods.

Hemp Seed Oil

Hemp also produces an oil seed that contains between 25 - 35 % oil by weight, which is high in essential fatty acids. Cold-pressed, unrefined hemp oil is light green, with a nutty grassy flavour.

It is a superb nutritional suppliment for EFA and imparts a desired flavour into dressings, dips and spreads. Its can be combined with or used in replacement of olive,walnut and safflower oils for cooking and eating.

Refined hemp oil is clear with little flavour or nutrients and has been widely used in body care products, lubricants, paints and industrial uses. Antimicrobial properties make it an ideal base for soaps, shampoos and detergents.

Hemp Seed Meal

Even after the hemp seed has been crushed for oil, the remaining product still contains 25% protein and is an excellent source of dietary fiber - it still remains a very appropriate food ingredient and nutritional supplement for people and animals. And it can be used to brew beer.
