Hemp seeds taste slightly sweet (low glycemic), creamy with rich nutty, buttery and heavy cream flavors.
Hemp seed uses include hemp milk, smoothies, salad dressings and eating by the handful. Hemp seeds have an adaptive flavor. They can be used in both sweet or savory (non-sweet) recipes. Hemp seeds tend to amplify whatever flavors are present with them, especially sweeteners like Agave Nectar and pungent spices.
Hemp Seeds are rich in protein (33%+), Omega 3 and Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), GLA, Chlorophyll, and SDA (Stearidonic Acid) which have been shown to increase DHA/EPA concentrations in eye and brain tissue.
An excellent vegan source for protein and energy. Those who consume 5 Tablespoons of Hemp Seeds (with raw fruits and veggies) for breakfast notice that they have enough energy for the entire day, that they expel wastes after every meal, and that they are not hungry again until mid-afternoon.

In a hemp-shell, the difference between the two brands of Hemp Seeds we carry seems to be taste and price.
Which should you choose?
If you are eating the hemp seeds straight or you have a very sensitive digestive system, we think the SunFire Super Foods brand is a great choice.
If you are using the hemp seeds in smoothies or energy bars, we don't think you'll notice any flavor difference and the Hemp Hearts can save you some money.
