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.

Way to go Amazon with this Amazing PriceJul 23, 2012

"Amazon Reviewer Since the 1990's"
Nutiva Organic Hemp Seeds are so good for you. They are 33% protein, 9% Omega 3, and GLA. I think the MSRP on these bags is $14 each so Amazon has these priced at almost half-price! This is a great affordable way to get some healthy proteins and fats.
Amazon sent me very fresh product. I subscribed-n-saved on July 22nd and it arrived via OnTrac on July 24th. The Nutiva Hempseed package says it was packed on may 19, 2012 and is best before may 18, 2013. Pretty fresh product and tastes fresh, too.
Sprinkle on top of your cereal, omelets, yogurt, soups, salads, and veggies.
Hemp seeds require no advance soaking to derive optimal nutritional benefit.
Here is a great way to enjoy Hemp:
1cup hemp seeds
1 cup spring water
1Tbsp maple syrup, honey, stevia, or your favorite sweetneer
dash himalyan salt
optional flavoriing = cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, cardamom
Combine all in a blender and blend well until a creamy white milk forms. Pour through a strainer to remove any husk residue. Will keep in refrigerator for 4-5 days but I recommend preparing small batches right when you want to drink them as fresh is the most tasty and most nutritious. You could also make a great milk out of Cinnamon Red Maca Almond Butter

Wholesome GoodnessJan 18, 2008
By Miss Mermaid
Hemp seeds are such a good source of live enzymes, zinc and protein. I use these to make milk. Just put one cup of refridgerated water, 2 or 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds, dash of salt and vanilla extract (optional) and whirl away in a high powered blender. It turns into luscious, thick and dairy free milk!

Excellent Product! I use it every day in my morning smoothie!Nov 06, 2011
Each morning, I make a smoothie with frozen bananas, frozen cherries, two teaspoons of hemp seed, and two teaspoons of cacao powder. Mix with almond milk, and you have a wonderful nutritious smoothie that will stay with you for the morning and tastes wonderful, too!

Thank you Nutiva! My Family is getting healthy again!Nov 10, 2013
By Healthy Mom Again
Shipment was quick, thanks to Amazon Prime! I take 3 spoonfuls right out of the bag everyday, and honestly, it gives me great energy to survive my hectic days! I have Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, very low immune system, and recently had issues with my kidneys. I could not exercise because of severe joint and muscle pains and headaches. My PT friend recommended Hemp Seeds, so I immediately researched about it. I was under observation by a nephrologist for 3 weeks for stage 4 kidney failure. I had to stop several of my medications and while in the process, consistently took Nutiva Hemp Seeds for the 3 weeks. I personally believe that it helped improve my kidney function from 52 to 75%! My headache goes away after I take a spoonful, and now I have very less headaches, and hope it all goes away soon! I am also able to perform my "motherly" duties without constantly complaining of pain & no energy. I now take less medications, and honestly feel healthy again! My husband takes 3 spoonfuls everyday too for his heart issues. While he was born with only 2 heart valves & never knew it until recently, his recent angiogram showed no blockage at age 59! He said "thanks to the hemp seeds." My mom & relatives have asked to order the product for them too. My mom loves the energy, vitamins, & minerals she gets from taking it everyday too. She takes it with her juices & breakfast oatmeal. She's 80 but looks & feels like 60 with all the benefits she gets from this. My 11 year old son takes it with his cereal & oatmeal for breakfast, and calls it his "brain food!" He is a straight "A" magnet kid! My whole family loves & believes on this product! It is making my family all healthy again!
