While the thought of adding hemp to your diet may seem strange to some, the many benefits of this extraordinary plant are not to be dismissed. While hemp seeds are the most common form of hemp-related food, the seeds can also be made into other foods or ingredients as well, like hemp oil or hemp protein (which is good for protein shakes).
Adding hemp to your diet can have great health benefits, but if you’re not sure where or how to start, we can help.
Hemp seed oil
Hemp Gallery Australia's hemp seed oil is cold pressed in a certified organic food grade facility. The seeds are gently squeezed until the fragrant oil is released. It has a pleasant nutty flavour, making it a nice alternative to olive oil.
Delivering an ideal ratio of essential omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids that helps fight inflammation in the body, hemp oil offers up heart-health benefits and may even hasten recovering after exercise. Hemp oil also contains sitosterol, a natural cholesterol reducer and its essential fatty acids can help reduce issues in your skin like acne, eczema and psoriasis.
The delicate fats of hemp oil are heat sensitive and are not suitable for heating to high temperatures, so when you buy hemp oil in Australia, use it in salad dressings, pesto and dips or add a tablespoon to your coffee for a new take on a bullet-proof caffeine hit.
Perfect for sprinkling over meals or stirring through some yoghurt, our hemp seeds are a delicious and nutritious addition to your daily diet. Full of fibre and protein, try adding hemp seeds to your muesli, porridge and salads, or add them to baked goods like breads and desserts.
Make a creamy dressing to give your salads and steamed veggies a zing. Just mix ½ cup of hemp seeds with juice from 2-3 lemons, add 2-3 cloves of garlic, a Thai chili (if you like some heat), and blend in a high speed blender. Keep a jar in the fridge ready to go.
Hemp Protein Powder
Our organically grown Hemp Protein Powder is made through a purely mechanical cold-milling process, resulting in a fine powder that blends well. No chemicals are involved. It is a complete protein with minerals, vitamins and fibre that can aid digestion.
Perfect as a post-exercise recovery drink, our protein powder also adds delicious flavour to breakfast bowls and smoothies. It mixes well with either plant or dairy milk as well as water.
Our Hemp flour is a gluten-free flour, ideal for baking and thickening sauces.
