Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds, 1 Pound (Pack of 2).Great tasting Hemp Hearts have a slightly nutty taste, similar to a sunflower seed or pine nut.Simply sprinkle on salad, cereal, granola, oatmeal & yogurt, add to smoothies and recipes or eat straight from the package.Contains more protein and omegas and less carbs than the same serving of Chia or Flax
Excellent product, Good nutty snack source or smoothies base, really thickens my morning shake. Great source of omega 3 and vitamin E. No after taste like fish omega 3 pills. Great for hair & skin. I have used these hearts for a year now and was frustrated to find out they had sold out. They were to be restocked in a month’s time. I couldn’t wait and after reading reviews about Omega Plus – 4x Strength Complete Fish Oil Supplement with Omega 3’s, I ordered a bottle of omega softgels from Nutratech. These are giving me the same results as the hemp hearts. I feel more energized and no longer experience joint pain. I will continue to use this product.
I've been experimenting with different oatmeal add-ins lately to try to boost the nutritional profile and to make things more interesting (because eating the same breakfast every day gets a little old). These hemp hearts were the most recent add-in I tried.Compared to the chia seeds I tried last week, there are some strong points and some weak points. The hemp seeds don't stick in the packet as much as the chia seeds do, so you can actually get them all out. And they don't make the oatmeal quite as gelatinous as the chia seeds. However, the taste is more noticeable, and it's not neutral. It's not a bad taste, but it's different and (for me) takes a bit of getting used to. There's something vaguely coconut-like about it, but I'd hesitate to say these tasted like coconut. At any rate, no point in analyzing it further, I just wanted to make you aware that these do have a flavor, so be prepared for that.These are quite high in fat, with 1.5g of saturated fat. However, there are 10g of polyunsaturated fat and 1.5g of monounsaturated fat (you know, the "good" plant fats). And they're cholesterol free. These are also quite high in fiber and protein and have very little sugar. What's truly amazing about them, though, is the level of some nutrients: these are high in phosphorus (45%), magnesium (45%), and manganese (110%), as well as having decent amounts of iron and several B vitamins. It's so much better to get your nutrients from whole foods instead of vitamin supplements if you can, and these are pretty awesome in that regard.I am definitely considering buying these again (they're also vegan, Kosher, and non-GMO, and they're sustainably harvested).Update 5/27/14: I have bought these again (from Whole Foods, hence no Verified Purchase label). They're actually more affordable than several other brands. And I have gotten used to the taste and don't notice it so much any more.
These are perfect, mostly I want to add that hemp doesn't need to be purchased organically. I researched on a hemp site and found this quote, ""Hemp does not require pesticides: while half the pollutants in the U.S. Today are sprayed on cotton plants, hemp is naturally mildew resistant, requires no pesticides, and maintains a healthy environment for the surrounding streams, air, flora and fauna." I'm very tired of companies charging extra for an unnecessary organic claim which is used to earn them profit.
This is a product I discovered listening to Internet radio about how to naturally lower blood pressure. My formula with no medication is water, water, walk, walk, Hawthorne tea, hemp hearts and prayer. These together have brought my BP from 160/89 to 127/75. Yay!
Delicious, plenty of good fat and protein and 0 net carbs. And Delicious imo, will be reordering monthly for sure. Cant wait to mix with sunbutter and coconut oil, vanilla extract and stevia for a keto muesli breakfast! maybe throw in some pumpkin seeds too! Not a vegan myself but that's a fantastic vegan keto breakfast!
Can be used to make a quick and easy cereal. Great for adding protein to baked treats.
Fresh, tasty and good price . Resealable bag. I use these everyday sprinkled on salads, soups, sandwiches and also in my dogs' food to keep them healthy too.
