Honorable Hemp Seeds

By Jodie Parus, RD, LDHonorable Hemp Seeds

Numerous types of nuts and seeds can be simple additions to your diet that contribute required protein, fat and fiber. Hemp has recently become more popular and you may be seeing more about hemp seeds as well as hemp milk or hemp protein powder popping up on the shelves.

Here's the low-down on hemp seeds and their benefits. They are a great source of protein, as they contain all 9 essential amino acids. They also have an ideal essential fatty acid profile, are high fiber and contain vitamin E and other trace minerals. In fact, hemp seeds are nature's highest botanical source of essential fatty acids, with more than flax or any other nut or seed.

Some of the documented benefits of hemp seed consumption are:

Increased energy levels

Lowered LDL cholesterol

Lowered blood pressure

Improved cardiovascular function

Reduced inflammation

Improved muscle recovery after exercise

So what do they taste like? Hemp seeds have a nutty, slightly sweet taste, comparable to pine nuts. They can easily be added to salads, homemade snack or breakfast bars, or blended into shakes.
