Nutrition of Hemp Seed
related articles ENDOCANNABINOIDS
Hemp seeds can be eaten raw, ground into a meal, sprouted, made into hemp milk (akin to soy milk), prepared as tea, and used in baking. Hemp-seed is usually very safe for those unable to tolerate nuts, gluten, lactose, and sugar.
Hemp-seed contains no gluten and therefore would not trigger symptoms of celiac disease. The fresh leaves can also be eaten in salads. Products include cereals, frozen waffles, hemp tofu, and nut butters.
A few companies produce value added hemp seed items that include the seed oils, whole hemp grain (which is sterilized by law in the United States, where they import it from China and Canada), dehulled hemp seed (outer shell), hemp flour, hemp cake (a by-product of pressing the seed for oil) and hemp protein powder.
Hemp is also used in some organic cereals, for non-dairy milk somewhat similar to soy and nut milks, and for non-dairy hemp "ice cream."
44% of the weight of hemp-seed is healthy oils.
