I've probably posted this before--the best value I've come across for shelled hemp seed is at:
This page sometimes takes awhile to load. Galaxy Global Eatery is a New York restaurant that specializes in hemp based cuisine. One day I'd love to dine there. Anyway, 5 lbs of shelled hemp for $25.00 before shipping.
Hemp is truly a super nutritious food, easily in the top ten. This morning I added 1/4 of shelled hemp nuts to my homemade soymilk and blended it with pumpkin seeds, rolled rye and oat flakes, freshly ground flax meal and frozen chunks of mango, pineapple and strawberry.
From the Nutiva web page:
A Nutritional Powerhouse
"Hempseed is considered by leading researchers and medical doctors to be one of the most nutritious food sources on the planet. Shelled hempseed is packed with 33 percent pure digestible protein and is rich in iron and vitamin E as well as omega-3 and GLA. A recent report funded by the Canadian government states that hemp protein is comprised of 66 percent high-quality edistin protein, and that hempseed contains the highest percentage of this of any plant source. Hemp also contains three times the vitamin E contained in flax. Unlike soy, hemp is not genetically modified, and it doesn't contain the anti-nutritional qualities commonly found in soy."
