The oil contained in the hemp seed is 75-80% polyunsaturated fatty acids (the good fats) and only 9-11% of the less desired saturated fatty acids making it the most unsaturated plant based oil.
In addition, it also contains smaller amounts of 3 other polyunsaturated fatty acids in gamma-linolenic acid, oleic acid and stearidonic acid. The combination is unique among edible oils. The essential fatty acids contained in hemp seed oil are required in our diet more than any other vitamin, yet our bodies do not naturally produce them. Hemp seed oil also contains antioxidants, phytosterols, phospholipids, chlorophyll and a number of minerals including calcium, magnesium, sulfur, potassium, phosphorus, along with modest amounts of iron and zinc.
With a delicate texture and a distinctive nutty flavour similar to sunflower seeds, it can be added to any dish as a flavour enhancer and used in a wide range of recipes from sauces, dips, marinades and salad dressings. It’s also a great alternative to olive oil, butter and spreads.
To maintain the nutritious quality of this hemp seed oil, do not use as a ‘frying’ oil or heat above 120°C, keep bottles tightly sealed after opening and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
As a nutritional supplement take a minimum of 3 teaspoons daily. Not suitable for infants under 12 months.
