Hemp seeds - are being heralded as one of the next superfoods due to their unusually high nutritional content. According to Hemp Foods Australia, hemp contains almost as much protein as soya beans, however, due to its protein composition, it is far more digestible. It’s extremely high in calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc and contains next to no carbohydrates. Hemp is also one of the only known foods to contain Vitamin D3, a vitamin normally obtained from the sun. This breakthrough natural product is certainly no fool!
In addition to its nutritional value, hemp is also extremely eco-friendly and sustainable to farm. It’s fast-growing, robust and water efficient making hemp the logical alternative to materials such as cotton.
