As one of the earliest foods to be used by humans, hemp seeds have long been recognized as an excellent source of energy. With a rich nutty flavor that is reminiscent of a sunflower seed, Navitas Naturals Hemp Seeds are pre-shelled, soft, and delicious. They can be eaten straight from the bag; sprinkled on top of vegetables, soups, yogurt, and cereals; mixed into baked recipes; or blended into a gourmet nut butter. This remarkable superfood is an excellent protein source with eight grams of protein per 2 tablespoons and contains all ten essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. Hemp also offers a perfect balance of Omega 3, 6, and 9 (the Essential Fatty Acids), and is a good source of magnesium, iron, zinc, and potassium.These hempseeds are sourced from premium growers in Canada, where they are harvested and then hulled. Navitas Naturals Hemp Seeds are raw, kosher, gluten-free, vegan, and 100% organic.
