When I first received my bag of Hemp Hearts I was a little nervous to try them. It just sounded odd to me. But once I opened the bag and tasted a few I was surprised. The taste is very much like a sunflower seed. I have now used my Hemp Hearts in salads, smoothies, baking and as a snack. I have liked them so much that I have purchased other Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods. I was happy to find out that one of my favorite local stores sold them.
- Great tasting - Hemp Hearts have a slightly nutty taste, similar to a sunflower seed or pine nut.

- Incredibly nutritious - per 30 gram serving, Hemp Hearts contain 10 grams of easy to digest plant-based protein and 10 grams of Omegas.
- Hemp Hearts contain more protein and omegas and less carbs than the same serving of chia or flax.

Hemp Hearts, the very best and most nutritious part of the hemp seed, the heart. By shelling the hemp seed, you get only the center, with its raw nutrition, rich nutty flavor and tender crunch. So easy to use, eat them straight out of the package or sprinkle on anything - salad, cereal or yogurt. The only limit is your imagination!
Unlike some other seeds, there is no need to grind Hemp Hearts to get at the incredible nutrition. They are full of protein with 10 grams of complete plant-based protein per 30 gram (3 tablespoons) serving size. Hemp Hearts are also a great way to add omegas or EFAs (essential fatty acids) to your diet. According to the World Health Organization, the ideal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 EFAs is 4:1 and the naturally occurring ratio in Hemp Hearts is 3.75:1. Hemp Hearts contain more protein and Omega-6 & 3 and less carbs than a similar serving of Chia or Flax.

Food, clothing, rope, paper, building materials, animal bedding/herd, plastic, paint, fuel - the list of hemp applications goes go on and on. We like to call hemp the “green buffalo” as every part of the plant can be used. Hemp that is grown in Western Canada is primarily used for hemp foods. At the top part of the hemp plant you will find the hard hemp seed. This small seed “seeds” nutritiously delicious products like Hemp Hearts, hemp protein powder, and hemp oil.
Hemp has been around for centuries and has played an instrumental role in shaping our continent. Settlers were given free land if they grew hemp. The Declaration of Independence draft was written on hemp paper. Hemp materials were used in numerous war efforts. Hemp was integrating into modern life until it was ‘temporarily’ banned due to misconceptions. Yes, hemp is a species of Cannabis sativa. No, hemp is not the same as marijuana.
Hemp contains 0.001% Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and will NOT cause a psychoactive effect nor will our products cause a false positive drug test. Largely thanks to Manitoba Harvest co-founders’ advocacy efforts, hemp was demystified and Industrial Hemp was legalized in Canada in 1998. From there an industry was (re)born! .
Here at Manitoba Harvest we solely focus on hemp foods. Do you blame us? Hemp foods are a nutritional powerhouse that actually taste great! Yep, you read that correctly, good for you AND tastes great! Packed with essential nutrients like protein, healthy fats, fiber, and magnesium, hemp foods have a slightly nutty taste that compliment any food.
Hemp is an extremely sustainable crop that can be grown without pesticides or herbicides. Hemp crops are seeded in late May/early June. Hemp plants grow close together and have large broad leaves that naturally help suppress weeds. The long taproot gathers moisture from deep within the soil, reducing the need for irrigation. Approximately 120 days after seeding, hemp harvest begins.
