- Presently we've been importing industrial hemp seed from Canada since the mid 1990's - our goal has always been to contract with our local farmers for Hempzels and mainstream use..
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..
