When compared to flax and chia, Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds post some pretty impressive stats. Each 30 gram serving (about three tablespoons) contains 10 grams of protein - that's twice as much as flax, and two and a half times the amount found in chia. Hemp Seeds are also higher in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, and contain some other essential fatty acids that flax and chia lack - GLA and SDA. So use these seeds! Use them in salads, on cereal, mixed into yogurt, blended into smoothies, or by the handful for a protein and EFA (essential fatty acids) boost.
