China reportedly produces 80% of the world’s Industrial Hemp Seed production, both whole (raw) and hulled. Hulled or hulling is simply removing the outer crunchy raw shell from the inner seed. OMD Are working hard here in Australia, particularly Tasmania on producing the very best.
Australian production is tiny, but growing! We diligently contract with growers, encouraging, motivating, pleading, pay a fair price, basically whatever it takes to create a win for all.
Organic Markets Direct contract with a Hemp Grower Cooperative in Tasmania. We purchase raw seed (unhulled), transport by refrigerated containers to our facility in Coolum Beach, QLD. Australia. We then grade & hull, which then flow through a series of aspirators (separating the seed from its shell) The results are just fantastic. Super clean fresh Australian grown Hemp Seeds!
The seeds are hulled in a Food Grade climate controlled room. These seeds are in such high demand and loved globally for their protein, fibre and omegas. Other than producing hulled seeds we also expel the raw seed for its precious oil. The by-product (cake) from expelling is then milled for its flour. Protein powder is produced by a series of sieves where the protein is separated from its fibre.
Nothing is wasted! Even the shell is milled and used for our body care products! Organic Markets Direct are passionate about producing the finest Hulled Hemp Seeds and by-products available anywhere.
Hulled Hemp Seeds are the most nutritious seed in the world. They are a complete protein, have the most concentrated mix of proteins, essential fats and fibre. Very little starches and saturated fats. A true Super Food! Hemp itself is part of the Cannabis Sativa variety which has been cultivated for thousands of years, for its fibre, seeds, oil and as a fuel.
Hemp protein powder has a mild flavor that easily blends with many foods. The protein and fiber help to slow digestion, prevent spikes in blood sugar, and help the body to sustain energy. Hemp protein powder can be mixed in with smoothies and shakes, or sprinkled on yogurt, cereal or fruit. Try mixing it into your salad dressing, soup stock, burgers, or nut butters. The powder can be used in any baked good, and can replace some of the flour that is used.
KNOWN NUTRITIONAL VALUE
Hulled Hemp Seeds are a perfect and natural blend of digested proteins, essential fatty acids (EFA) known as Omega 3 & 6. These omegas including Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) are a perfect balance and reportedly a more digestible protein than meat, eggs and cow’s milk. Also rich in Vitamin E and can be eaten by those unable to eat nuts, gluten, sugar or lactose.
Essential Fatty Acids.
The oil contained in the Hemp seed is approximately 75% polyunsaturated fats (the friendly good fats) and approximately 10% of the less desired saturated fats. Hemp seed oil is the most unsaturated oil derived from the plant kingdom. The EFA's contained in Hemp seeds are considered essential as our bodies don't naturally produce them. They can only be obtained by the foods we eat.
Hemp protein powder is not psychoactive in any form and is legal in nearly every country in the world.
