hemp seeds hulled or unhulled

Hulled Hemp Seeds Vs. Whole Hemp Seeds

Hulled hemp seed, which is the whole seed with the crunchy outer shell removed, comes by quite a few names like hemp hearts, shelled hemp seed and hemp nut. Since the hulls of the hemp seed are quite crunchy and contain a lot of fibre, we as a society are not used to eating this kind of item. Hulled seed was created essentially to make eating hemp seed more appealing and easier to eat. When you bleach wheat to achieve white bread, you essentially are removing all of the nutrients. Why do it then? Simply, white bread is softer, more palatable and more visibly appealing. It is not more nutritious than its whole grain counterpart. This same analogy can be used for the difference between whole seed and hulled seed.

One recent comment from one web site reader commented that this is true in most other situations but that hemp seed actually becomes more nutritious when you remove the hulls. While this is true to an extent, it does increase the overall percentage of protein, increases the total EFA content and reduces the carbohydrate percentage, the material you are removing also contain some excellent nutrition.

When you remove the hull of the seed you are causing several detrimental effects to the nutritious whole seed. The main detriment is that you lose the hull, an excellent source of minerals but more importantly, a rare source of insoluble fibre, something that we get very little of in our modern diets. You can use the hull of the hemp seed to gently cleanse your colon and flush toxins from your intestinal tract. It is an excellent source of a type of fibre that is not found in our diets because of over processing of foods. Another good source of insoluble fibre would be soil, something not commonly consumed.

Whole hemp seed is also an excellent source of minerals and is much more stable out in the air then hulled seed. All in all, we feel that even though the seed is small, very crunchy, and may get stuck in your dental work, the benefits of the added fibre in your diet significantly outweigh the detracting factors of the hull. In the end though, we would much rather you eat hemp and gain the benefits of the excellent nutritional value of the seed from either the whole seed or the hulled seed.

Wondering what is the difference between hulled hemp seed and whole hemp seed? Hulled is the whole seed minus the shell, which increases the overall protein percentage per equivalent serving but loses fiber mineral content of the shell.

Hulled hemp seeds vs Whole hemp seeds

Hemp
seeds come from the female hemp plant are one of the highly nutritious seeds.
They are extremely rich in protein, fiber, minerals, fatty acids, and
antioxidants. They contain a whopping 30% fat, including PUFAs like omega-6 and
omega-3. These PUFAs are in the most perfect ration of 3:1, respectively.

When
the outer shell of the whole hemp seed is removed, they are known as hulled hemp seeds. They are also famously known as shelled hemp seeds, or hemp hearts,
or hemp nuts. De-hulling the hemp seeds is a purely mechanical process, and the
raw material is sized and cleaned before de-hulling. There is no water or heat
involved in this process, making the hemp seeds retain their original
nutritional properties. While hemp seeds are de-hulled to make them more
appealing and convenient in consumption. Although the whole hemp seeds have
more dietary features than their de-hulled counterparts.

Although,
the overall amount of protein, and the total EFAs, are increased in addition to
the reduction in the carbs content occurs when whole hemp seeds are de-hulled.
But, clearly, the material you remove also makes you lose other nutritional
properties. The hull contains a rare insoluble fiber, which is very much absent
in our diets because of all the over-processed foods it contains.

Although the hemp seed is small, crunch, and might even get
stuck in between your teeth, it provides you with extra nutrition like fiber,
etc., which is not present in the hulled hemp seeds.
