More Info On This Product
Hemp hearts can be added to just about any food for a protein and Omega fatty acid rich boost to your diet. The proportion of fatty acids in one tablespoon of hemp heart oil can fulfill the daily requirement of EFAs, and unlike flax oil, clinical studies have shown that daily intake of hemp oil will not create a deficiency or imbalance of EFAs.

Clinical signs of essential fatty acid deficiency includes skin rashes, dry hair, hair loss, slow wound healing, stunted growth in children, and an increased susceptibility to infection.

What is the Difference Between Hemp Hearts and Shelled Hemp Seeds?
Nothing! Hemp hearts are the same shelled, nutritious, organic, raw food as hemp seeds. Some people refer to them as hemp hearts and some refer to them as "shelled hemp seeds," where the hard outer shell of the seed has been removed. Whatever you call them, they are tasty and nutritious!
