How to Shell Hemp Seeds

Whole hemp seeds are crunchy and difficult to eat because of their fibrous outer shells. In an attempt to make this dietary supplement a little easier to munch, the shells are sometimes removed. You may find shelled seeds at specialty grocery stores, but whole seeds are generally cheaper and more prevalent. Therefore, it helps to know how to hull your own hemp seeds.

Pour the hemp seeds onto the table, and spread them out into a single layer. Make sure they are relatively close together so more will fit beneath the board.

Place the board on top of the seeds.

Tap the board with the wooden mallet; hit it every few inches to ensure that all of the seeds are ruptured.

Pour the seeds into a bucket of water.

Stir the seeds vigorously, so the shells will float to the surface while the seeds sink.

Skim the empty hulls from the water until none remain. If a few seeds still have their shell, crack them individually with the mallet. Then return them to the water and continue stirring until all of them are shelled.

Pour the contents of the bucket through the colander. Collect the freshly hulled hemp seeds.

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.
