The first thing you think of when you hear hemp seeds isn’t super food but yet they are. They are super little seeds packed with essential fatty acids, omega 3 and omega-6. Hemp seeds are good for hair, nails and skin and also help to support the immune system, balance hormones and promote a healthy metabolism. Don’t worry these won’t make you high – Carun Hemp Seeds are produced from selected sorts of hemp, which do not contain the psychoactive substance, THC.
The hemp seeds are brilliantly high in protein, vitamins and nutrients.
It is certainly the weirdest thing I’ve been asked to review so far but also one of the most surprising.
The Carun hemp seeds are £15.99 for 500g but that is a huge container full.
They look and feel like sesame seeds and have a slightly rice / couscous / wheat germ smell.
I have been trying them in a few different ways including with yoghurt and fruit, on breakfast cereal and in dinners. I have had them in risotto and my favourite Mexican quesadillas. I usually put a sprinkle of sesame seeds in my quesadilla so I thought I’d try replacing it with the hemp seeds.
A mix of my favourite toppings and hemp seeds ready to be used for dinner. They worked so well and in the heat had softened. They don’t have too stronger taste but there is a nuttiness which you can pick up on if you use it in plainer food but it’s relatively tasteless with all these other flavours. It had a delicious bite like sesame seeds and was satisfying to chew on.
The finished quesadillas were amazing. I ate far too many as usual!
As I’ve only been trying hemp seeds for a week I haven’t noticed a huge difference yet but my skin is looking better and my digestion seems happier too. I will keep going and see what happens.
I’m looking forward to sprinkling it on salads this summer!
I was given the hemp seeds to review. All opinions are my own.
