If you’re looking for a simple and easy way to boost the nutrition factor in your meals, then hemp is the superfood you need. Just three tablespoons (30 grams) of hemp hearts contain 10 grams of plant-based protein and 12 grams of omegas 3 and 6! That’s 2x more protein and 25% more omegas than an equal 30g serving of chia or flax! And if that wasn’t enough, hemp also contains gamma linolenic acid (GLA), iron, magnesium, fibre, iron, zinc and phosphorus.
