Hemp contains all the essential amino acids and fatty acids
80 % of the fatty acids in hemp are so-called “good” fatty acids, or polyunsaturated fatty acids. The omega-6/omega-3 ratio of hemp oil made of hemp seeds is 2:1 which corresponds to the omega-6/omega-3 ratio of a healthy person’s tissues. Hemp oil also contains the gamma linoleic acid (GLA) and stearidonic acid which are important for the body.
Hemp oil has a slightly nutty taste. Hemp seed is at its best in salads, salad dressings, smoothies or porridge. However, hemp oil is not recommended for frying.
Hemp seed and hemp protein made of hemp seed contain all the 20 essential amino acids. The protein content of hemp protein is about 50 g / 100 g and it contains 20–28 g / 100 g of fiber depending on the type of product.
The varieties of hemp approved by the EU do not contain any intoxicating components.
Hemp contains plenty of vitamins and minerals
In addition to its excellent fatty acids profile and amino acids content, hemp contains vitamin E, vitamin B, iron, calcium, magnesium as well as other minerals such as phosphorus, zinc and copper.
