Hemp foods and other hemp nutrition

Approximately 44% of the weight of hempseed is edible oils, containing about 80% essential fatty acids, linoleic acid, omega-6 and other additional oils. The seeds can be eaten raw, ground into a meal, sprouted, made into hemp milk or developed into various moisturising products.

As Afri Hemp grows, it will expand the variety of products available. Eventually we would like to expand to construction, paper, bio fuel and many more industries that are interested in having a greener footprint. Of course, this growth depends on how long the government takes to “wake up and smell the Hemp”.

The seeds are a complete protein, meaning they contain every essential amino acid – because your body cant make these essential amino acides they must come from your diet. Without them, your body would be unable to build and repair proteins, such as muscles. Not many plant proteins contain all the essential amino acids, which makes hemp seed unique.
