Nutritional delightDec 06, 2010
By D. Stewart
I've purchased Nutiva hemp seed many times over the last year, and so far it has been delivered fresh and good tasting. Be aware that it turns rancid quickly and needs refrigeration. I use it to make hemp seed milk. I find this to be the most efficent and effective use of the product. I blend 1 cup of hemp seed, 3 cups of distilled water, a pinch of kelp powder, and 3 pitted medjool dates, that have been soaked overnight, in my Blendtec blender. I then strain it through a nut milk bag. The blending is so complete that the only thing left in the bag are a few hard shells left over from Nutiva's mechanical processing and small amount of fiber. The Nutiva processing is pure mechanical and kept under 104 degrees F. They then store it under 40 degrees F. The plastic shipping bag is vacuum sealed. Hemp seed is a nutritionally complete food. It has all of the essential amino and fatty acids. 3 tbsp. supply 11g of protein. Hemp seed has lots of fiber and is a colon cleanser, so go easy on the amount you consume, at first, or you will spend a lot of time on the toilet. In order to keep it fresh I store it in a plastic tub in my freezer.

Inconsistent at best - too many hullsMar 05, 2012
By Bubba Guppy
I enjoy hempseed, primarily I sprinkle it over my salads to add a nutty and nutritious component.
I like buying this in bulk because it saves money over the expensive 1 pound or half-pound bags I can get at the store.
My complaint about this product is that you never know what you'll get. Sometimes it's fairly free of hulls (seed coats) and sometime it's just full of them
And they're hard to deal with - very hard pieces of shells that interfere with the enjoyment of whatever you are eating.
I guess you could spend time separating the pieces out, but that is a labor-intensive process and at that point it becomes more economical (time is money) to buy the 1 pound or half-pound bag at the store from a company that pays more attention to what they are packaging.
I kust got a new shipment and it is absolutely full of seed coat fragments.

just what i asked forFeb 10, 2013
By Danny S. Clements
i used this hemp during my month-long juice fast to sustain me as the pounds (and sanity) left my body. i make a half gallon of vegetable juice at one part of the day & fruit smoothie with hemp, cashews & chia seed in another. i HIGHLY recommend this if you're juicing to make sure you get enough omega fats & protein.

Love the Hemp!Apr 16, 2009
By Amanda C.
I really enjoy the hemp hearts. I have come to crave them. I am always looking for a good deal and this is indeed a great price for the qty. These come to abt 3 to 5 dollars less per lb. than what I can get locally. If I use auto ship it is 5 to 7 dollars less. My only complaint is the hulls of the 3 brands I have tried this has by far the most hulls and the only one with intact seeds. I doesn't take much to de-hull them but, it is time consuming. I realize "hulls are a good source of fiber" but, my teeth do not agree. I am tempted to pay a little more for less. If this is something that doesn't bother you I urge you to get it.

A thick shake helps, and good tastingJul 28, 2012
By J Steck
The ones I get have almost no hulls, comes very fresh. Blending is the key to getting past all the fiber in it.
Lots of iron. Some of these items have been talked about on The DOCTORS.
DR. OZ his website has a 3 day juicing and smoothie plan. Check the website navitasnaturals. For more recipes, videos and info.
I really hope this helps you. In your search for better health. Even if you use just some of these items. It is well worth trying them.
Use 3 to 4 servings of each, drink it in 3 days or less.
Add water, Hemp milk or Almond milk. About 1/2 full.
1/2 cup Hemp protein power
1 cup Hemp seed nut
1 Tlbs. Chia seed powder (this will gel if you let it sit)
1 Tlbs. Acai
1 Tlbs. Lucuma
2 Tlbs. Gelatinized Maca
2 Tlbs. Dulse flakes
1 tsp. cup Camu Camu
1/3 cup Cacao (strong tasting, you will know if you use too much)
1 to 2 cups Frozen Blueberries or cherries, mango.
Navitas Coconut Palm Sugar (or YACON to taste)
Also I add some goldenseal root. Not every day.
(Today, goldenseal is marketed as a tonic to aid digestion, sooth upset stomach, and as an antibacterial agent. It is considered a natural antibiotic and is most often combined with Echinacea in preparations designed to strengthen the immune system. However, only one study found that goldenseal might help boost white blood cells (a measure of the infection fighting ability of the immune system), and it wasn't well designed.
Start with the blender half full of water. Mix the Hemp nut, Dulse flakes and frozen fruit first; on high, till it makes a "milk".
Then the rest of each item, you want in it
If it gets too thick. Add some more water.
You can add yogurt, take the seaweed flakes out if you like. it will taste good if you work on it.
