Ok I am seeing that some of you are on the right track but others have the wrong info.
Hemp flour has about 10% oil content, the following is the nutritional break down from a bag of Manitoba Harvest Hemp Flour/ 15g serving.
I have this bag because I work at Manitoba Harvest!
I am sure you have seen products on the market called Hemp Protein, its the same as flour in a different package at a much higher price!
Here are my thoughts!! USE THE HEMP SEED NUT! Better taste and more benefits!!
The following is the nutritional breakdown of the Hemp Seed Nut/ 30g serving:
Total Fat 9.8g but remember only .5g is saturated fat the rest is the good fats.
The nut is 35% oil thus giving you a great source of the essential fatty acids that the body needs. Remember the essential fatty acids are the building blocks of life.
Hemp Seed Oil does not come in a ratio of 2:1:1 it comes in a ratio of 3.75:1:1 (Omega 6:Omega 3:Omega 9) Its in a perfect ratio that the body needs. If you use a flax or a fish oil you get too much omega 3 and that can cause a number of different issues.
Using the hemp seed nut as a protein source is a great plan. The body has to work very hard to digest Whey, thats why you have to take so much as for hemp the body handles it very easily making your body more efficient! Why not let your body spent more time growing rather than working to breakdown the other protein you are consuming. If you check out Manitoba Harvest's website there is a Smoothie called the Green Earth Smoothie this is great tasting, full of protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals! Its a great meal replacement.
I don't want this to sound like an ad for the company. I do work for Manitoba Harvest but I am also a bodybuilder. I was seeing the wrong information so I was just passing on the right info.
I hope this is a help!
Take Care of You
