Nutiva - Organic Hempseed Raw Shelled - 12 oz (340g)

Nutiva - Organic Hempseed Raw Shelled is rich in protein! With omega-3 and minerals, hemp is the world's most nutritious seed. The hemp seed is the richest known source of polyunsaturated fats, containing a perfect 3:1 ratio of omega-6 linoleic acid and omega-3 linoleic acid. In fact, the hemp seed balance of Omega 3 to 6 fats is the perfect proportion for human dietary needs, making hemp an ideal addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle. We simply remove the seeds' hard shells, yielding a 100% raw culinary product that tastes like pine nuts. Enjoy straight out of the bag or sprinkle on your favorite foods.

Nutiva Shelled Hempseed Features

  • 33% Protein
  • 45% Fat
  • 15% Carbs
  • Grown without pesticides

Did You Know?
Because Nutiva cannot legally grow hemp in the United States, they must rely on Canadian farmers to produce their hemp crops. Shortages of organic seeds often occur due to weather or because surging sales outstrip supply.

  • Cold-Processed
  • Oxygen Removed

These steps ensure freshness and help protect the delicate Omega-3 fatty acids. It's part of Nutiva's commitment to "Nourishing People and Planet."

Nutiva Frequently Asked Questions

Are Nutiva’s hemp products raw?
Yes, Nutiva’s hemp products are cold-processed (under 104°F) from raw, live hemp seeds. Nutiva utilizes a mechanical process to remove the hard shells, yielding their delicious shelled hemp seeds. Their hemp oil is expeller-pressed from the seeds without the use of hexane or other toxic solvents. Their hemp protein powder is made from specially milled hemp seed cake with the oil removed.

Are Nutiva seed bars raw?
No, they are not technically raw because the honey in Nutiva’s bars is heated to around 200°F, so they are not considered to be raw.

Why is Nutiva’s commitment to Fresh Is Best important?
Everyone knows fresh foods and oils taste better and are more nutritious. Nutiva is committed to offering the freshest products available. They guarantee this by utilizing the optimal manufacturing and storage methods for each product. They also mark the production and “Best Before” dates on all their products.

How should I store my hemp seed, hemp oil, and hemp protein powder?
It is best to keep hemp products refrigerated or in the freezer and to use them within 8-12 weeks of opening. You can also store unopened hempseed products in a cool dry place such as a basement.

Are hemp foods legal to import, buy and consume in the United States?
Yes. The case HIA v DEA established that hemp foods are exempt from control in the Controlled Substances Act. An excellent overview of the case can be found on the Vote Hemp web site on their DEA Hemp Food Rules page.

If I recently consumed hemp foods, could I fail a drug test?
If the only source of the psychoactive THC in your body is from hemp foods, produced from Canadian grown hemp seeds and eaten in reasonable quantities, it is virtually impossible to fail a drug test by ingesting hemp foods due to the fact that THC levels in their products are barely measurable.

The TestPledge program is a voluntary commitment by the North American hemp food industry to limit THC concentrations to levels where they cannot result in positive drug tests. Nutiva joined the TestPledge program in 2001. Nutiva’s hemp food products meet Canadian government and TestPledge standards for hemp foods.

They recommend that you read the TestPledge Answers page first. If you need more technical information please download and read the study summary “Evaluating Interference of THC in Hemp Food Products With Employee Drug Testing,” which was prepared by Gero Leson, D.Env. and Petra Pless.

What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Marijuana and hemp both come from the same species of plant, Cannabis sativa L., but from different varieties. There are different varieties of Cannabis, just as Chihuahuas and St. Bernards are different breeds of dogs, Canis familiari.

  • Marijuana is the flowering tops and leaves of psychoactive varieties of Cannabis that are grown for their high THC content.
  • Hemp, also referred to as industrial hemp, are low-THC varieties of Cannabis that are grown for their seeds and fiber. Hemp is grown legally in just about every industrialized country except the USA. For more detailed information see Hemp 101.

What is the recommended daily intake of hemp seeds?
Health practitioners suggest three to five tablespoons of shelled hempseed per day.

What is the recommended daily intake of hemp oil?
Health practitioners suggest one or two tablespoons of hemp oil per day.

Why is hemp so nutritious?
Hemp oil contains the most essential fatty acids (EFAs) of any nut or seed oil, with the omega-3 and omega-6 EFAs occurring in the nutritionally optimal 1:3 ratio.

Why are essential fatty acids (EFAs) important?
Essential fatty acids cannot be produced by the human body; they must be obtained from your diet. As the name implies, they are essential to your health and well being. Seventy percent of adults who eat a typical Western diet do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids, and at the same time, they get too much omega-6 fatty acids. This imbalance can cause a wide range of health problems.

What are the benefits of hemp vs. flax?
Shelled hempseed is more easily digested than ground flax seed, while whole flax seed passes through your body undigested. Hemp seed and hemp oil also contain higher-potency omega derivatives, GLA and SDA, which flax seed lacks.

I would like to know more about hemp and hemp foods. What are some good sources of information?
A. To learn more about hemp food, please read The Amazing Hempseed and an article, “Hemp and Flax Seeds and Oil in Modern Nutrition” by Gero Leson, D.Env.
