The Recipe & Instructions:
Blend the hemp seeds, water, and salt at high speed for 30 seconds. Pour through the nut milk bag/strainer into a bowl or mason jar directly (for storage up to 5 days in fridge). Squeeze the remaining liquid through the bag, and use immediately for hundreds of recipes. Scrape the contents of the nut milk bag and store in a separate container, to be used in baking, smoothies, cereal, and more.
After straining, add your own sweetener and re-blend. Maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, even dates!
Hemp seeds are categorized as an “achene” a one seeded fruit with an inner “nut” protected by a hard outer shell. It is one of the most essential nutrient dense and balanced foods available, and provides an excellent easily digestible source of protein and balanced good fats for human health. Once removed from the shell, the nut can be eaten raw or pressed to create hemp oil. PlanetHemp® uses a number of unique processes to ensure that the shelling, cleaning and pressing are done gently, thoroughly, and at a cool temperature to protect nutritional values. The result is an exceptionally clean, flavourful product with an optimum nutritional profile.
Easy to digest: Unlike many grains, legumes and nuts, hemp contains no enzyme inhibitors, and the seeds do not need to be soaked or sprouted before being consumed in order to get their full nutritional benefit.
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs): EFAs are called “essential” because they are necessary for many metabolic processes, and are not produced by the body itself. They are distinct from fats that are used only as fuel. The two fatty acids essential for humans are alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid, and linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid. Hemp is not only an excellent source of these two EFAs, but it also provides them in an ideal ratio of about 3:1 for Omega 6 to Omega 3. Hemp also contains steriodonic acid which is the precursor for DHA and EPA formation, rendering the need for fish oil unnecessary.
Essential Amino Acids: Our bodies consist of about 75% protein, and amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Essential amino acids are those which our bodies are not capable of making and which must come from our food. Hemp seeds contain all 10 of the essential amino acids including those that children require, and significant quantities of non-essential amino acids that are also nutritionally important.
