Common hemp has enormous economic potential. In terms of organic matter production per unit of acreage, hemp occupies one of the leading positions along with sugar beets and potatoes. The plant is a valuable raw material for producing a variety of environmentally friendly and safe products. For many years, common hemp was mainly used in Russia for making high-strength fibre and hemp oil.

Nowadays, the range of hemp products produced has expanded worldwide, but food applications remain one of the main uses of the crop.

Common hemp is in demand in the food industry, especially in dietary, vegetarian and sports nutrition, due to the composition of its seeds. They contain up to 48 % carbohydrates and 29–33 % oil. Hemp seeds, which are highly nutritious, rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamins and mineral nutrients, are consumed both as a standalone snack (in peeled form) and as oil and other derivatives.

Hemp cake

Hemp cake is a high-calorie pressed product of hemp seeds processing.

Exceptional in its nutritional properties, this hemp derivative is of great importance to the food industry due to its increased caloric value as compared to other, more popular crops: 1 kg of hemp cake equals 2.4 kg of potatoes or 4.9 kg of sugar beet silage or 4.5 kg of corn stalk silage in terms of nutritional value, and 1 kg of hemp cake equals 2.85 kg of oats grain, 3 kg of barley grain or 25.3 kg of potatoes in terms of protein content.

The demand for hemp cake as a valuable feed for horses, poultry, cattle and fish feed confirms the high profitability of common hemp. This is because about 65 kg of waste remains from 100 kg of hemp seeds after the pressing.
Hemp cake is used to produce healthy dietary food products with excellent taste: hemp flour and hemp milk.

Hemp
seeds

Common hemp seeds are excellent human and animal nutritional products obtained through careful cleaning and grading after harvesting.

Hemp seeds are used for oil production or consumption in a peeled (collapsed), crushed or sprouted form.
Hemp kernels are valued for their rich content of plant fats, mineral nutrients and amino acids as well as their delicate and subtle taste. Peeled hemp seeds are easily and quickly digested, contributing to recuperation and improving protein balance. The amino acid composition of hemp seeds is ideal for maintaining vital functions and growth of the human body. This is because they contain nine (of the twenty available in hemp seeds) essential amino acids which cannot be synthesised in the body and are taken in only with food.

Peeled or sprouted hemp seeds are an excellent option for a vegetarian meal, a healthy addition to porridges or salads, and are also used in the baking industry, giving the final products and dishes a special flavour and aroma. In Eastern countries, hemp seeds are a traditional ingredient in confectionery products: halva, Turkish delight and other delicacies.

Hemp oil

Hemp oil is a vegetable oil with unique composition and beneficial properties extracted from hemp seeds by cold pressing.

Cold pressing helps to save all the beneficial properties of seeds: mineral nutrients, vitamins and polyunsaturated fatty acids (linolenic Omega-3 and linolenic Omega-6).
It is widely known that Omega-3 and Omega-6 acids prevent the development of cardiovascular and nervous system diseases, prolong youth and have a restorative and anti-inflammatory effect on the human body. Regular intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids increases immunity and improves health. Hemp oil contains essential fatty acids, Omega-3 and Omega-6, in an optimally balanced ratio for humans (1:3). Hemp seed oil is an excellent source of life energy for modern people living under stress and in adverse environmental or climatic conditions.

Light, chlorophyll-rich hemp oil usually has a greenish tint and a pleasant fresh aroma with slight nuttiness.
With its original taste and high biological value, hemp oil is not inferior to the highest varieties of some of the table vegetable oils and is an essential element in a healthy, balanced diet.
To preserve its taste and health value, we recommend to use hemp oil without heat treatment.
