What Are Hemp Seeds?

But first, what are these seeds? Hemp seeds come from the hemp plant. And no, they won't get you high! Instead, they burst with tons of proteins and healthy omega-3 fats.

A Blast of Proteins

Imagine that, weight by weight, hemp seeds pack twice the amount of proteins than chia seeds and tofu. And almost as many proteins as meat!

Perfect For Vegans

And on top of this, hemp seeds' proteins are complete. This means they contain all the essential amino acids. The perfect protein boost in plant-based diets!

How Do You Eat Hemp Seeds?

Ok, hemp seeds are great. But how do you eat them? You usually find hemp seeds shelled, also called hemp hearts. They're soft, white-green seeds with a nutty flavour!
