Hemp seeds are rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals. They are also an excellent source of fiber. Hempseeds are the only edible seeds with gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Whole hempseeds are cold-pressed for oil or hulled to expose the seed meat (think of it like taking the shell off of a peanut). That said, whole hempseed is probably not a good first choice for adding hempseed to your diet because of its high fiber content. However, if you’re on a fiber kick, whole hempseed is for you!
