The issue of how we grow and process our food, while it’s always been important, is now a hot topic both at the kitchen table and on Wall Street. From the recent scandal about a chemical used in yoga mats being found in Subway bread to the rising awareness of GMOs and demands to label their presence in foods, the public is fast awakening to the need for safe, whole, natural nourishment.
We were excited to spend a day volunteering at a project of Teens Turning Green, one of the organizations we support through our 1% donation program. Teens Turning Green works closely with kids and teenagers to instill an awareness of environmental and food issues to develop tomorrow’s environmental leaders.

Every day, more and more Americans discover the benefits of hemp. This ever-expanding market includes healthy food and body care products, as well as eco-friendly textiles, clothing, auto parts, and building materials. But despite hemp’s growing popularity, an outdated and misguided Federal policy – created in the 1930s – currently prevents U.S. farmers from growing this nutritious, versatile, and eco-friendly crop.
As the pioneer of the U.S. hemp industry, we at Nutiva love to sing the praises of hemp. It provides all 20 amino acids (including the 9 essential), as well as essential fatty acids, Omega-6 and Omega-3. One serving of hempseed contains:
7.5 g – Omega 6 LA
3.0 g – Omega 3 ALA
0.6 g – Super Omega 6 GLA
0.3 g – Super Omega 3 SDA
