HempNut Label

HempNut Nutrition

HempNut brand shelled hempseed is a great source of the essential fatty acids Omega-3 Linolenic Acid and Omega-6 Linoleic Acid, as well as the hard-to-get Gamma-Linoleic Acid. While most foods have little if any, HempNut is over 36% Essential Fatty Acids, and in nature's perfect balance of 1-to-3 omega-3:omega-6 (according to Dr. Udo Erasmus). It contains 31% complete and highly-digestible protein, 1/3 as edestin protein and 2/3 as albumin protein. This protein profile is second only to raw uncooked soybeans (35% vs. 31%), and the amino acid profile is superior to soybean, human milk, and cow's milk, and similar to egg whites. Excellent protein efficiency makes HempNut ideal for medical foods and other special diets. We have yet to hear of an allergic reaction to shelled hempseed, and it contains no gluten.
