New at Sunfood! It’s About Time We Offered This Controversial Superfood

Brand New to Sunfood - Raw, Organic, Shelled Hemp Seeds!
Considering that one of our founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson, grew hemp, it’s somewhat illogical that many states in the U.S. are restricted or outright prohibited from growing this tiny superseed. Federal policy currently equates hemp, a sustainable non-drug crop, with marijuana. Never mind that the oil, seed and fiber varieties of the hemp plant are used in everyday products currently bought and sold in the U.S., including skin care, clothes, paper, building materials, biofuels, and of course, superfoods.

We are thrilled to announce that we now have our very own Sunfood hemp seeds: certified organic, raw, non-GMO, gluten-free, kosher, and sustainably grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides. They are carefully manufactured using a cold mechanical process to ensure that delicate enzymes and nutrients remain intact to bring you the highest quality, purest hemp seeds available.

Why Is Hemp Considered a Superfood?
Hemp LeafDid you know that hemp seeds contain 36% protein, meaning that per serving, hemp has more protein than meat? Hemp is also one of very few plants that contains a proper balance of omega-6 and omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) which the body can’t produce on its own.

What’s the big deal about EFAs? Firstly, omega-3s may contribute to the maintenance of mental and visual function, as well as normal heart health. The Standard American Diet is typically imbalanced with too many omega-6s and not nearly enough omega-3s. If you’re not deliberately making sure you’re getting your omega-3s, chances are you’re not getting enough.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, “symptoms of omega-3 fatty acid deficiency include fatigue, poor memory, dry skin, heart problems, mood swings or depression, and poor circulation.”1

In addition to protein and omega-3s, a 3 Tbsp. serving of our hemp seeds also provides 45% of your daily RDA of magnesium, 21% zinc and 15% iron.

Sprinkle delicious hemp seeds on any meal for a superfood boost of protein, minerals, and omega-3s! Hemp seeds have such a mild, nutty flavor and pleasantly soft texture that you can add them as garnish to any sweet or savory dish. Check out this creamy Good Morning Hemp Latte!
