About Hemp Foods
Hemp was our company’s founding product. In fact, the name “Nutiva” was inspired by the “nut” from the Cannabis sativa plant. Our line of nutritious hemp foods has grown to include Hemp Seed, Hemp Protein, HempShake™, Hemp Bars and Hemp Oil.
Hemp is easily grown without pesticides or herbicides, and besides its tasty nut it yields a strong fiber used for cloth, paper, construction, plastics and auto parts, and countless other ways.
The hemp plant has been in cultivation for thousands of years throughout Asia and the Middle East before finally making its way across Europe and to the Americas. It is an extremely versatile and hardy plant, with many uses including fibers and plastic, and being known as one of the most nutritious foods on the planet.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has been using the hemp seed for more than 2000 years as a healing and tonifying food in treating a number of ailments. Hemp is protein rich, gluten-free food loaded with protein, Omega-fatty acids and fiber. No known allergies exist to hemp foods.
