There’s no need to grind or cook Hemp Hearts as they are ready to eat straight from the bag, making them simple to incorporate into your diet!
After shelling or de-hulling the whole hemp seed, you are left with only the center – the ‘Hemp Heart’. With its raw nutrition, rich nutty flavor and tender crunch, Hemp Hearts taste great, are easy to use and are good for you! Eat them straight out of the package or sprinkle them on anything – salad, cereal, yogurt – the only limit is your imagination!
Hemp Hearts may look little, but they contain 10 grams of plant-based protein and 10 grams of omegas per 30 gram serving – more than a comparable serving of Flax or Chia.
Manitoba Harvest producers deliver whole seeds directly to our state-of-the-art, global food safety and quality certified facility. Here the seed is de-hulled and goes through over 30 food quality and safety tests before being packaged in a modified atmosphere, light impermeable package to lock in the freshness.
All of their packaging includes the ‘packaged on’ and ‘best before’ dates to ensure you’re getting the highest quality product available. Hemp Hearts, as with all Manitoba Harvest products, are Non-GMO Project Verified.
Sprinkle on top of salads, cereal or yogurt. Add hemp hearts to baking, or just eat them right out of the bag.
Recommended Use: 1-2 servings per day.
Storage: Refrigerate after opening.
Food, clothing, rope, paper, building materials, animal bedding/herd, plastic, paint, fuel – the list of hemp applications goes go on and on. We like to call hemp the “green buffalo” as every part of the plant can be used. Hemp grown in Western Canada is primarily used for hemp foods. At the top part of the hemp plant you will find the hard hemp seed. This small seed “seeds” nutritiously delicious products like Hemp Hearts, hemp protein powder, and hemp oil.
Hemp has been around for centuries and has played an instrumental role in shaping our continent. Settlers were given free land if they grew hemp. The Declaration of Independence draft was written on hemp paper. Hemp materials were used in numerous war efforts. Hemp was integrating into modern life until it was ‘temporarily’ banned due to misconceptions. Yes, hemp is a species of Cannabis sativa. No, hemp is not the same as marijuana.
Hemp contains 0.001% Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and will NOT cause a psychoactive effect nor will our products cause a false positive drug test. Largely thanks to Manitoba Harvest co-founders’ advocacy efforts, hemp was demystified and Industrial Hemp was legalized in Canada in 1998. From there an industry was (re)born!

Here at Manitoba Harvest we focus solely on hemp foods. Do you blame us? Hemp foods taste great! Hemp foods have a slightly nutty taste that complements any dish.
Hemp is a sustainable crop that is seeded in late May/early June. Hemp plants grow close together and have large broad leaves. Approximately 120 days after seeding, hemp harvest begins. For an “insider look” into a hemp harvest, click here.
Just as there are misconceptions around hemp and marijuana, there are misconceptions about cannabidiol (CBD) extracts and hemp. click here for our detailed information on CBD and hemp foods.
