Hemp Doesn’t Make You High, it Makes You Healthy
We are sure you have heard about hemp – one of the newest super foods to hit Australian shelves!
There has been a lot of buzz about hemp recently with its legalisation to consume in November 2017. Hemp Foods Australia is buzzed as well, bringing forward a selection of hemp seeds, oil, flour and protein for the public to enjoy.
Paul Benhaim founded Hemp Foods Australia back in 1999. Paul had already been successful in Europe with his best-selling Health Snack bar and was hopeful he could do the same here.
For nearly 20 years, the company has been researching and developing their hemp seeds with the hope that Australia would allow for a hemp food market. When this wish was finally granted, Hemp Foods Australia achieved their HACCP certification.
These little hemp seeds are so popular as they are packed with protein. The seeds contain about 25% protein and boast oils such as omega 3, 6 and 9. However, that is not all! Hemp seeds are comprised of magnesium, iron, phosphorus and zinc. No wonder the public was so excited that hemp has finally hit our shelves!
To meet the growing demand for this nutrient rich super food, Hemp Foods Australia has created an amazing snack bar range. This range has three bars that provide 100% of your Omega 3 in a single serving and are 100% Australian Certified Organic. They are also paleo, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and have no added sugar, making them the perfect bar for those who looking for a raw snack alterative. The good news doesn’t finish there though; these Hemp snack bars come in the delicious flavours of salted caramel crunch, chocolate, banana and coconut and ginger macadamia. How great do these sound?
Another fantastic product in their range is Hemp Oil, the healthiest culinary oil on the shelves. This oil has been carefully cold-pressed from the hemp seed in a natural raw process ensuring all nutrients are transferred to the liquid. Hemp oil has high levels of omega-3, 6 and 9 as well as 40% less saturated fat than olive oil.
All the products in the Hemp Foods Australia collection can be used in nearly every aspect of your cooking. Whether baking a cake, dressing a salad, making a smoothie or blending hummus, hemp goods can add those extra nutrients to your creations.
We think it is about time that you get on the hemp seed bandwagon!
