Hemp Hearts are little soft seeds that are similar in taste to sunflower seeds or pine nuts. They do not need to be prepared and are ready to use straight from the pouch—easy-peasy! Hemp Hearts contain twice the amount of protein compared to flax or chia, and they’re lower in carbohydrates. They are healthy sources of a broader spectrum of omegas including the rare GLA.

No—hemp foods do not contain CBD. CBD (cannabinoids) are sourced from another part of the plant and are used for medicinal purposes.

PRODUCT FAQ

Contact Us if you have any other questions not listed here regarding your products.

Hempco is licensed with Health Canada to receive viable hemp seed from farmers and process it into food products for human consumption. We do not employ any devitalization methods, including irradiation, and simply mechanically dehull the hemp seed into hemp hearts ensuring all of the natural benefits of hemp are maintained. We see the benefits of raw products and seek to maintain these qualities from the farmer and into the consumers hands. The mechanical process of dehulling the hemp seed into hemp hearts is sufficient to ensure no germination is possible this product.

The product would have a slightly sour odour and taste. Hemp hearts have a nutty taste profile similar to that of sunflower seeds or pine nuts. Anything off would be evident

Hemp food products in pouches are best consumed within 14 days and should be kept refrigerated. Hemp Seed Oil should be stored in the fridge and is best consumed within 4-6 months after opening.

Hemp is indeed a naturally gluten-free product. However due to cross- pollination possibilities from neighbour crops, we cannot make a true gluten free claim or promise.

As much as would love to have recyclable packaging, it currently is not. We require packaging that is light and air impermeable to protect hemp’s Essential Fatty Acids and to keep the product as fresh as possible—and currently there are no recyclable options available unfortunately. We are actively looking for alternatives.

To receive all the nutritional benefits of Hemp Protein, Hemp Nuts and Hemp Oil, we recommend that they not be heated. That being said, many people enjoy low-temperature baking with our Hemp Hearts. It is not recommended to heat Hemp Oil.

All products are proudly made in Canada.

We use 100% Canadian hemp, 100% of the time. Hemp in Canada is grown in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba and we are proud to be supporting Canadian farmers.
