Know your Hemp

Eat 100% Australian Hemp every day!

We explain why hemp has been used for centuries around the world, as an ancient nutritional powerhouse and provides essential nutrition often deficient in today’s modern diet.


Hemp is a complete plant protein, containing all 20 common amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids our body requires us to obtain from our food, which makes hemp seeds the ideal protein choice for vegans, vegetarians or anyone who is looking to reduce the meat content of their diet. Two of the main proteins in hemp are Edestin and Albumin. They are readily digestible and boost the immune system.

Fibre & Prebiotics

Hemp seeds provide a rich source of fibre, soluble, insoluble and resistance starch, making hemp protein, hemp flour or even straight up hemp husks (what is left after the seed is dehulled) an excellent source of fibre and prebiotic nutrition to feed our healthy gut bacteria.

Healthy Fats | The ideal OMEGA 3:6 ratio

Unlike many other plant seeds, hemp contains nature’s perfect ratio (1:3) of omega 3 to omega 6 essentially fatty acids, required for optimal long-term health.

Essential Minerals

Many plant-based protein sources like soy and brown rice contain phytates. These can interfere with the absorption of essential minerals like iron, magnesium, zinc and calcium. Hemp seeds do not contain phytates and naturally contains good levels of these minerals. Hemp seeds are a great source of magnesium as well as other minerals including iron, phosphorus and zinc.
