Hemp grows in popularity

In 1999, Shawn House took a gamble that hemp could be the food of the future.
Nearly 20 years later, the nutty seed has a foothold in the natural foods aisle, and entrepreneurs like House are looking for new ways to use it in everything from granola bars to tortilla chips.
House's Lancaster Trading Co. specializes in pretzels and spreads made with hemp, most notably his Hempzels a twist on the classic soft pretzel incorporating hemp seed, hemp flour and hemp oil; a horseradish-hemp-and-honey mustard; and hemp seed butter sold under the Natalie's Choice brand.
He has dabbled in everything from hemp brownies to peanut-butter filled hard pretzels, all of the results packed with more protein, vitamin E and fiber than traditional versions.
Hemp's growing reputation as a nutritional powerhouse is on equal footing with its versatility.
"It's a light, nutty flavor," House said. "Kind of like a sunflower seed."
Mixed into existing recipes before cooking, it might not even be noticeable to finicky eaters. But raw or gently heated, it can add welcome texture and depth of flavor to soft baked goods, crunchy salads, even meaty meatless burgers.
In June, the Rodale Institute's culinary arm designed a colorful, hemp-themed menu for an event promoting all things hemp at the institute's experimental farm in Maxatawny Township.
