About Nutiva
Nutiva began in 1999 as an idea in the mind of John W. Roulac, the author of four books on home composting and industrial hemp. Nutiva is the third successful business Roulac has founded since jumpstarting the modern home-composting movement in the early 1990s with his best selling-book, Backyard Composting (one million copies sold).

Nutiva introduced America’s first hemp food bar at a time when the extraordinary nutritional value and ecological benefits of hemp foods were little known. Nutiva then introduced an entire line of organic hemp foods, while also adding Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. Nutiva’s products are offered in 6000 US, UK and Canadian retailers–including Whole Foods Market, Wegmans and The Vitamin Shoppe.

Nutiva expresses its corporate citizenship by donating 1% of its sales to organizations promoting sustainable agriculture.

Nutiva was recognized by Fast Company magazine for their David-and-Goliath victory over the United States Drug Enforcement Agency in 2003, which had planned to classify hemp foods as schedule I drugs. Fighting a heroic legal battle, CEO John W. Roulac, and other industry leaders appealed the DEAs ruling and won their case.

About Founder and CEO John Roulac:
John W. Roulac is an author and the CEO of Nutiva, the hemp food and coconut oil brand that has pioneered nutritious organic foods since 1999. A passionate advocate of holistic living for more than twenty-five years, Roulac founded three non-profit ecological groups in the 1990s.

Roulac founded Nutiva and it is his third successful business since jumpstarting the modern home-composting movement in the early 1990s with his best selling book, Backyard Composting (one million copies sold).

He is a recognized expert on hemp foods, coconut oil and composting and has been widely quoted in the media ranging from Wired Magazine to the Los Angeles Times to the Wall Street Journal.

About Nutiva Shelled Hemp Seed

Hemp was our company’s founding product. In fact, the name “Nutiva” was inspired by the “nut” from the Cannabis sativa plant.

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.

These steps ensure freshness and help protect the delicate Omega-3 fatty acids. It’s part of Nutiva’s commitment to “Nourishing People and Planet.”

Q. What are the benefits of hemp vs. flax?
A.Shelled hempseed is more easily digested than ground flax seed, while whole flax seed passes through your body undigested. Hemp seed and hemp oil also contain higher-potency omega derivatives, GLA and SDA, which flax seed lacks.

Omega 3-6-9 oils are a combination of three types of essential fatty acids. “Essential” means that the body does not produce the fatty acids on its own and therefore they must be taken in through the diet. The standard North American diet is deficient in essential fatty acids, especially omega 3s.
Every cell needs essential fatty acids for its cell membrane where the fats make the important barrier that lets other molecules into and out of the cell.

Without the healthy fats cells become porous and chemical or nutrient imbalances can occur. The essential fats also produce chemical messengers, such as hormones, in the body thus, omega 3-6-9 oils help to optimize hormone levels in both men and women. Essential fatty acids have been used to treat eczema, psoriasis, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, menopause and PMS. They also improve hair and skin, prevent blood clots, improve memory and regulate hormone levels.

There are three categories of EFAs, omega 3, omega 6 and omega 9. Vegetable-based combination oils usually contain alpha-linolenic acid, ALA, for omega 3, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), for omega 6 and oleic acid, for omega-9. The sources of the oils are several of the following: flaxseed, borage, black currant, hemp, pumpkin seed, primrose, sunflower or safflower. Some combination oils include fish oils derived from fish such as herring, cod, mackerel, tuna or salmon. These oils give the added benefit of containing docosahexanoic acid, DHA, and eicosapentaenoic acid, EPA, two other types of omega 3 fatty acids.

Ensure your omega 3-6-9 supplement is not processed with heat because it damages the acids and creates free radicals. Some of the damaged fats turn into trans-fatty acids, which are well known for their promotion of cardiovascular disease. Refrigerate all liquid 3-6-9 supplements and keep capsules away from heat because they can become rancid. Using liquid EFAs is much more cost effective than capsules because numerous capsules must be taken to make an equivalent amount of liquid oil.
