Hulled hemp seeds

The flavour of hulled hemp seed is very distinctive. It will tend towards marine notes, with a hint of iodine for some palates. Others will taste vegetable or cured meat notes.

As a topping, hulled hemp seeds are used for numerous applications, including baked goods, pastries, salads and delicatessen desserts.

Hulled hemp seeds can also be turned into a seed paste for incorporation into recipes requiring the addition of fat.

Hulled hemp seeds:
a superfood

Hulled hemp seeds, obtained from the Cannabis sativa subsp. sativa variety, contain only very small quantities of the psychoactive substance THC. The legally authorised maximum content is 0.3%.

Hulled hemp seeds are of high nutritional quality. Hulled hemp seeds rival pumpkin seeds in terms of protein content, with more than 30%. Hemp is an oilseed plant containing almost 50% fat. Low in saturated fatty acids, hulled hemp seeds are high in omega-3 and omega-9 fatty acids. Minerals (potassium, phosphorus, magnesium), amino acids (tryptophan, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, etc.), and vitamins (B1, B3, C) are also very well represented in the nutritional profile of hulled hemp seeds.

Thanks to all their qualities, hulled hemp seeds can be recommended for sports diets. Their balanced lipid profile is helpful for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Finally, the high mineral content of hulled hemp seeds supports the immune defences.

Hulled hemp seeds, grown in France

Like flax, hemp has been grown since Neolithic times. The fibres of its stalks are used for clothing, but especially for rope-making.

Hemp is now widely used in a broad range of industries, including cosmetics, paper, construction and the automotive industry.

Almost the whole plant is used after harvesting. The seeds are used to produce oil and also for human and animal nutrition.

France is Europe’s biggest producer of hemp, with almost 20,000 hectares of land cultivated with the crop each year.
