Every year, HempFlax harvests some hectares of hemp seed for nutritional purposes. Hemp seeds are one of the most nutritious foods on earth. They taste similar to pine nuts and sunflower seeds. In terms of nutrient content, hemp seed is basically 32% protein, 44% fat, 12% carbohydrate and 7% dietary fiber. For diabetics, the glycemic index of hempseeds is considered low because of their low carbohydrate content. They are also full of nutrients that moderate blood sugar.

Not only do hemp seeds contain essential fatty acids (EFAs) in the proper ratio required by humans, but also all the essential amino acids and dietary fiber required for good health.
