hemp seeds - Peanut Allergy Information

hemp seeds

Publish date:

My daughter has peanut and tree nut allergies. I would like to try shelled hemp seeds, they have lots of Omega 3's. She has no problems eating sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. Does anyone know of a reaction to eating hemp seeds? Are they related to nuts/peanuts? Are they safe to eat? Thank you for your imput. Sandy

Hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain healthy human life.[19] The seeds can be eaten raw, ground into a meal, sprouted, made into hemp milk (akin to soy milk), prepared as tea, and used in baking. The fresh leaves can also be eaten in salads. Products include cereals, frozen waffles, hemp tofu, and nut butters, to name a few. A few companies produce value added hemp seed items that include the seed oils, whole hemp grain (which is sterilized by law[where?]), dehulled hemp seed (the whole seed without the mineral rich outer shell), hemp flour, hemp cake (a by-product of pressing the seed for oil) and hemp protein powder. Hemp is also used in some organic cereals, for non-dairy milk[20] somewhat similar to soy and nut milks, and for non-dairy hemp "ice cream."cannabis seeds [url=http://www.ministryofcannabis.com/]cannabis seeds[/url]
