Why Tasmanian Hemp Seeds?
Whether it be Hulled Hemp Seed, oil, protein powder or flour, you can be sure, both purchase and consumption is not just about flying the flag. Many tell us to buy Australian grown! So it should be, but only if it the best!
As nutritious as Hemp Seed foods are, they must be fresh. The shelf like is 12 months and must be kept in climate controlled conditions, preferably in a refrigerator after opening. Any longer than 12 months, one has to be concerned. Have they been radiated or placed in an oven and micro-waved? Long shelf life is a red flag, particularly on Hemp Foods.
Arguably on imported foods, it is the great unknown. Yes, there are companies in China, Canada and in Europe who act with integrity and transparent with their labelling. But do all? Absolutely not!
The new Australian labelling laws may weed some out, but why risk it?
If the product is genuinely Certified Organic, or chemical, insecticide and pesticide residue free and have independent lab results to back it up, Australian grown, fresh and sensibly priced, why wouldn’t you buy?
Within Australia, Tasmania leads the way on Hemp Seed production. The Tasmanian’s had the jump on the mainlanders. The government there was and continues to be supportive of the industry and now reaping the benefits.
Hulled Hemp Seeds Flow
The raw seeds originate from a Hemp Seed Grower Cooperative in Tasmania, Australia, transported using refrigerated containers to Hemp Hulling Co (QLD) facility located in Coolum Beach, Queensland. There, they are graded & hulled (removing the outer crunchy shell from the inner seed) which then flow through a series of aspirators (separating the seed from its shell) and proprietary machinery. The results are just fantastic! Super clean, fresh and truly Australian Grown and processed Hulled Hemp Seeds!
The facility is Certified Organic, Food and HACCP grade and climate controlled:
True Cold Pressing Hemp Oil!
The is so different! The tas
Let’s explain the process … It all begins with a RAW hemp seed. Most seed, arguably is cold pressed in an expeller that produces both oil and a cake. Many expellers generate a massive amount of heat, commercially they need to … on a premise of pumping out the oil fast. We practise the “Art of slowness” using ambient temperatures, nothing above 40 degrees, effectively keeping the oil in a raw state.
Vital … one captures those nutrients!
Hemp oil is one, if not the most balanced natural source of Omega-3 & 6 essential fatty acids. So important for maintaining a healthy body and mind. Essential fatty acids (EFA’s) play a real role in metabolism, cell growth, and general brain functioning. Without an adequate intake of Omega 3 & 6 EFAs, the human body is unable to function properly. Check the science, it is real. They say 60 percent of the human brain consists of fats, an imbalance in the ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 in ones diet can lead to reduced brain function and problems such as depression and poor concentration. Nasty!
EFAs may also assist in the treatment of degenerative conditions, inflammation, and high blood pressure.
Hemp oil provides an unusually high percentage of unsaturated fats, with a ratio of 3:1 of Omega 6 and Omega 3 EFAs, making it one of the most balanced oils available for human nutrition. Together with its Gamma Linolenic acid (GLA) content, hemp oil may help support the functioning of cardiovascular, immune, reproductive, and nervous systems.
Contrary to what the name suggests hemp oil does not contain elevated levels of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana. THC is mainly found in the flowering tops of female plants before the seeds mature. Hemp seeds are thoroughly cleaned and washed before pressing, thereby removing any traces of THC on the seed.
You will not get ‘high’ from ingesting hemp oil.
Traditional benefits of Hemp Oil:
Helps lower blood pressure.
Improves cardiovascular health.
Helps reduce hyperactivity and learning difficulties (ADHD).
Improves general brain functioning.
Treatment of Psoriasis and Eczema.
Taste, usage and storage
Test a bad hemp oil and you will be off it for life! The taste is nutty and raw. Taste is subjective, most will find it is perfectly palatable.
The purists will consume directly from the spoon. 2 tablespoons first thing in the morning, followed by a teaspoon of honey, a wonderful combination!
Add to smoothies, salads, yoghurts, balsamic vinegars, a little baking, but not frying!
It is a precious oil, needs to be kept in a cool, dark and dry environment. Once opened it MUST be kept in a refrigerator.
51% Digestible Protein. True cold pressing of the Raw seed results in a much better protein. We have seen it in our new generation Hemp protein. From fragrance to texture, but is simply divine!
Hemp protein is a natural plant based product that contains all 20 amino acids including the 9 essential and 2 semi-essential amino acids for the human body and holds approximately 33% protein content in hulled hemp seed form (without shell) and 51% in hemp protein powder.
Hemp protein powder is a by-product of cold pressing for hemp seed oil. The defatted hemp remains are called hemp cake or nut. This is then milled and aspirated into a fine powder, essentially removing a good portion of fibre.
Many uses for the Hemp protein, the most popular is in smoothies. Consider in yoghurt or baking. Awesome taste!
High Fibre Hemp Flour | Powder
After producing protein, we are left with a high fibre flour, after additional milling, there is approximately 30% of protein, consistent and free flowing. Awesome in any baking! The fibre content is 40% plus, inexpensive and can also be used in smoothies and yoghurts. Some may even prefer this powder to the 51% protein, as it has such a wonderful balance of protein, fibre and omegas. Like the protein, an awesome taste.
