Our certified organic seeds are grown without any chemical pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers.
Because Nutiva cannot legally grow hemp in the United States, we must reply on Canadian farmers to produce our hemp crops. Shortages of organic seeds often occur due to weather or because surging sales outstrip supply.
These steps ensure freshness and help protect the delicate Omega-3 fatty acids. It's part of Nutiva's commitment to "Nourishing People and Planet."
Shelled hemp seeds or hempnuts taste similar to sesame or sunflower seeds and can be added to almost any recipe. Ingredients 100% raw certified-organic shelled hemp seeds.
Storage It is best to keep our seeds refrigerated and air tight. If you purchase a bulk 5-pound bag, consider adding a pound to a container for daily use, and seal up the 5-pound bag and place it in the freezer. This will help protect the seed quality.
