Hemp Seed

My company is interested in contracting with Pennsylvania Farmers for Hemp Seed, Fiber & Oil. We use it in our Brand's Hempzels(C) Pretzels & Natalie'sChoice(tm) Omega Foods. This ancient grain is universal - we've been importing it since 1998 and we've been to the hempfields that we once hope to see here in Lancaster County and elsewhere. 


Raw - dehulled hemp seed pictured above - 18gms of protein per 2oz but low in fiber - keep both refrigerated. Whole hemp seed above lightly toasted by law or irradiated by law before importation is 13gms of protein per 2oz with 16gms of soluable & insoulable fiber with a different taste profile - both are nutty. In Lancaster County we have the whole seed with expeller pressed hemp oil made into a gluten free, dairy free, peanut free, no sugar or preservatives - vegan 100% hemp nut butter. Natalies Choice 100% Hemp Nut-Less Vegan Butter . We use hemp flour in our bakeries for Hempzel Pretzels - our Soft Hemp Pretzel Swirls have 13gms of protein per 4oz swirl..

  1. What part of the hemp plant do you use to make your product lines?  Hemp flour, hulled hemp seed & hemp oil - depends on the items & application.

  2. Why do you refer & compare hemp seed to flax or soy nuts? To get a perspective on the overall benefits of hemp seed for a digetable edisten protein (no milling required where flax should be milled) - hemp is similar to soy but without the estrogen issues, hemp seed offers more vitamin E than flax and a better balance of Omega 3, 6 with GLA Essential Fatty Acids - PLUS - hemp seed taste good whole or hulled.

  6. What makes your Sourdough Hempzel Pretzels different from typical pretzels? They are hand made, stone hearth baked & use less wheat since we add hemp & organic brown rice flour, they are a darker grain & really taste good.

  7. What makes your Peanut Butter Hemp Pretzel Nuggets Different? (Note - temporary production stop) - what a great product - we had to stop production due to limited distribution - but they can come back when we can produce volume.

  8. What makes your Baklava different than traditional Baklava? It's been "Hempzelized" - starting with Organic Fillo dough, using hemp seed vs traditional pecans, walnuts or pistachios depending on the culture. It's lighter, fluffier & healthier. Made Vegan & traditional, packaged 2 servings per tray.

What makes your Mustard different than traditional mustards on the market? the apple cider vinegar is better for your digestive system, we've also fortified it like many of our other products with hemp seed although you won't notice a taste difference as you would with the Baklava or Pretzels.

  1. Natalie's Choice Omega Foods - is your nut-less hemp butter "nut" free. Yes, hemp is a vegetable not a "nut" even though that term is used. Our product is also produced in a local facility that is nut & wheat free.

  4. Why is hemp not grown in the United States anymore? Law enforcement still maintains confusion between the species of cannabis. Politics = control and the politicians haven't figured that out yet - our farmers want to grow, consumers are hip & aware of the varieties of cannabis and that hemp is a non-drug crop. HR1866 needs support to change the Federal Wall that has been erected around banning this vegetable.

  5. What can I do to help revive this agri-business? Participate with,, ask your elected representatives to support HR1866 & keep talking about it. Sooner or later it will be grown legally without fear in the U.S.A.
