Hempseeds are highly appreciated in food industry, both human and animal, and also in cosmetic industry.
Once they are harvested, the highest quality seeds can be addressed for human consumption.
These seeds can be consumed entire, peeled, or they can be processed in order to get sub products of high food quality like seed oil or protean flour.
High quality oil can be acquired by the direct cold-pressed process of the seeds. This oil has a lipid composition that is very beneficial because of its high proportion of non-saturated fatty acids and their optimum balance of essential fatty acids.
Flour is made out of the defatted remains of the pressed seed, transforming it into food that is low in fat, but very rich in protein.
