Australians are celebrating the fact that they can enjoy the benefits of Hemp Nutrition, now that hemp foods are finally legal for human consumption in their country. November 12th marked the first day that hemp seed is legal to grow in Australia, opening up a world of opportunity.
Hemp seeds contain heaps of nutrients, making them an exceptionally healthy food. They contain the perfect balance of Omega 3, 6 and 9, the essential fatty acids, as well as several vitamins and minerals. They’re also an excellent source of protein, making them an ideal food supplement for those on a vegetarian or vegan diet. Hemp seeds have a smooth texture and a delicious nutty flavour, so people with nut allergies can replace nuts with hemp seeds.
Because of their highly nutritional nature, hemp seeds are a popular addition to granola bars, salad dressings, breads, flour, and so many other food products. These nutritional gems are perfect for every meal, blended into smoothies, or sprinkled over salads, soups, or your favourite breakfast cereal.
The legalisation of hemp farming will provide farmers with a new crop that will give them a stable financial future. The new hemp industry will also create jobs in many other areas, such as production, processing, marketing and design.
