Hemp seed oil has been called ‘Nature’s most perfectly balanced oil’. With its familiar nutty flavour, this versatile ‘new’ oil can be added to smoothies, applied to salads, dressings, sauces, pasta dishes, drizzled over cooked fish and meat, incorporated in low heat baked recipes such as cakes, cookies and desserts and in many other instances where high-quality nut oils are used.
Hemp seed oil is also perfect fish oil replacement, a great source of antioxidants (Vitamin E), minerals and Vitamin D, which is vital for calcium absorption, along with generous amounts of iron and zinc. With a guarantee that these plant-based Omegas contain no mercury and no need for processing to remove fish odour. Excellent for Vegetarians and Vegans.
The taste of fresh Hemp Seed Oil is nutty and raw. Taste is subjective, most will find it is perfectly palatable. Hemp Seed Oil is a precious carrier of Omegas and should be kept at optimal conditions.
Just like flax seed oil, Hemp Seed Oil should be kept in a cool, dark and dry environment. Once opened it must be kept in a refrigerator.
Why Buy Australian Hemp Foods vs. Imported
Recent changes to import laws in Australia have provided a significant advantage to locally grown Hemp seed. All imported Hemp seeds will have to be sterilised rendering it a dead seed. This kind of treatment significantly affects the nutritional qualities and shelf-life, which may compromise the health, therapeutic and nutritional benefits attributed to the use of Hemp seeds, oil, powders and foods.
