Why You’ll Love Organic Shelled Hempseed
Hemp has been gaining newfound respect in recent years because of its versatility and a greater understanding of its superfood properties. If you’re considering adding these powerful little seeds to your diet, try Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed—aside from nutrients, they have a slightly nutty taste that can be added to a number of great recipes.
Hempseed and health
Many can agree that hemp is actually quite versatile because of all the ways in which the plant can be used. Hemp fibers can make clothing, paper, body lotion, oil, and many more items that can be used every day.
Although, aside from those teeny fibers, hemp also produces mighty little seeds, the basis of Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed, that hold nutrients that can contribute greatly to your diet. Here are just a handful of the benefits they provide:
- Source of iron: A serving of Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed provides 15 percent of the daily recommended value of iron. This mineral is needed to maintain healthy red blood cells and ensures that those cells are properly carrying oxygen throughout the body.
- Source of magnesium: Each serving of Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed has 50 percent of the daily value of magnesium. Eating magnesium may help regulate muscle and nerve function, blood sugar levels, and blood pressure.
- Source of protein: These shelled hemp seeds contain 20 percent of the daily allowance of protein per serving. And because they’re plant-based, they can be a great way for vegans and vegetarians to get a regular protein intake.
- Source of polyunsaturated fats: The hemp seed is the richest source of polyunsaturated fats and contains a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 linoleic acid and omega-3 linoleic acid. Additionally, the hemp seed balance of omega-3 to omega-6 fats is the ideal proportion for human dietary needs, making these an ideal addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle.
- They’re versatile: Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed aren’t just great for health and nutrition, they’re also easy to add into many recipes and diets. Since they can be incorporated in everything from yogurt to salads to smoothies, their versatility makes them an easy superfood to use.

That’s not all, however, they also strive to make the world a better place by donating one percent of all sales to create sustainable agriculture groups around the world.
Why Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed is a good choice
Hempseed fits naturally into a healthy lifestyle, and Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed is the perfect choice for anyone looking to incorporate these seeds into their diet, because they are:

- Raw. Only raw, shelled hemp seeds are used in Nutiva Organic Shelled Hempseed. No added flavors or preservatives are used—it’s just a naturally delicious product.

Reviews For Organic Shelled Hempseed
Based on 34 Reviews
Purchased primarily for making hemp milk, very smooth texture, Two cups water two tbsp hemp seeds and two tbsp of raw/organic agave, few slices of your favorite fruit blend and enjoy! Once this product is opened refrigerate and it is recommended to us within 12 weeks. This will be a staple in my kitchen!
I tried these seeds in a banana, strawberry , Nutiva Vanilla Powder with water shake. It made it smell and taste a bit strange and made me not want to drink the shake. I may have to see whats the best way to use these seeds.
I love these on salad. I'm sure I'll find other uses for them too, but my salad wouldn't be the same without them!
Love these hemp seeds in smoothies, on salads and mixed in yogurt and oatmeal. Great quality and great price!
Organic shelled hempseed
new product which I introduced into my daily eating regiment. Has a wonderful taste, nutty, and goes great on just about everything. I enjoy it with fruit and almond milk. Helps with digestion, and high fiber promotes wellness.
I did not know that these seeds are crushed, which makes snacking on the fly a little tricky. ( I suggest a spoon) However, they are so good (and way good for you) if you toast them up a bit, toss them in yogurt, salad, breakfast cereal, etc. The 8 oz. package size is generous and should be kept refrigerated.
I recently found the same product, same brand at a so-called "discount store". The price was double. Do yourself, and your wallet a favor.... Shop Thrive Market.com
Great protein source
I love to eat these hemp seeds daily. I put them on yogurt, in salads, smoothies, my own homemade chocolate bars and energy "bites", just to name a few. They are crunchy with a nice nutty flavor. Great product.
I absolutely love these! I put them into my yogurt or smoothie and they give this amazing nutty flavor and come with a load of health benefits! I highly recommend this brand as I have tried many and this is the most resonantly priced one I have found that has all the perks I want!
Very, very tasty. The number of servings per bag is good, and so convenient.
Organic Hemp Seed
Love this on salads and in smoothies!
adds a nice crunch and flavor!
I bought this product after receiving a free sample. To be honest, I was afraid to try the sample. I used it in my salad and was delightfully surprised by the nice crunch added. The flavor is lightly nutty, not strong at all. Good stuff that's healthy, too!
Organic Hemp Seed
Love them on salads....
keeps my energy levels up
I use 3 to 4 Tablespoons in my morning smoothy. It's the only thing I've found that keeps me from getting sleepy during the day.
Always fresh tasting
I use this product in smoothies, to make seed milk and also sprinkle on salads, oatmeal, and occasionally in yogurt. A great way to get extra protein. Always tastes fresh and at a great price.
Great product - speedy delivery!
Awesome product. Love these little guys!
Great in oatmeal...protein shakes or even salads!
These hemp seeds are terrific, use them in salads and smoothies1
Organic shelled hempseeds
I love organic non-GMO hempseeds. They have a mild nutty flavor. Easy to add to any recipe and so good for us. Will definitely reorder.
- Patricia Davenport-Perkins
I use this in my morning smoothie. Great product!
Great for Hemp Milk!
I went Vegetarian recently for health reasons, and my Doctor suggested I start eating Hemp Seeds to supplement my protein and fat intake. I immediately asked if that was legal in our state, which she assured me it was.
At first I just added a few spoonfuls to my yogurt and granola in the morning, but decided I wanted to find some other ways to eat them. Then I found this great recipe for hemp milk with just water and dates in the blender. It's amazing! I now use it to eat cereal, put it in my coffee, or just drink it straight! The seeds are great, but you have to keep them in the fridge, or they'll go off very quickly.
- Theresa Spencer
I love adding hemp seeds to my smoothies, yogurt, and cereal. Almost anything. I love the texture and the nutty flavor. They are also a good source of good fat and protein.
So glad I discovered these
Three tablespoons have 10g of protein! An excellent addition to smoothies and salads to up my protein intake. Plus they have a great light nutty flavor. FYI they have to be refrigerated after opening!
Protein and more
This stuff is wonderful and has a lot of health benefits. I like to eat them alone, they taste like sunflower seeds. I also think they are great in smoothies and add a little bit of a nutty flavor.
Hemp is controversial to some people, but they don't understand that there is a difference between this and marijuana.
Great breakfast bars
When I worked in a health food store I was first introduced to this stuff. At first I was afraid to try it. One day we had samples out and I gave it a try. Hemp seed tastes a lot like sunflower seeds.
One of our workers made breakfast bars with it and I was absolutely in love.
I love this hempseed. Nutiva is a great brand. I use this for making hemp milk, and it is wonderful.
Just blend a cup of hemp seed, 3 cups of distilled water, a pinch of kelp powder, and 3 pitted medjool dates. I use my Magic Bullet. Strain through cheesecloth.
In order to keep my hempseed fresh I store it in a sealed plastic tub in my freezer.

Love These Shelled Hempseeds!
I love my Thrive Market membership for a ton of reasons. One is the great selection of natural, raw, healthy, Paleo, gluten-free foods, and health and beauty products. There seems like the items I need are constantly on sale!
For example, this Nutiva Shelled Hemp Seeds 8oz pouch. It tastes great and I enjoy it in many different recipes. This is currently listed for 33% of what other sites are selling, certainly a lot cheaper than our local health food stores.
Thank you so much Thrive for the opportunity to purchase products I need and use for so much less!

Morning Smoothie Protein
Use this for my morning smoothie. It adds much-needed protein to my morning smoothie. It also makes my smoothie much more thick and creamy to drink. Thrive has made it so easy by delivering it straight to my door. I don't even have to go out to my local health foods store anymore, and I'm always sure I have some on hand.
- Timothy A
Not big enough to be a snack
Nutiva hempseed are flavorful, but they're not ideal for snacking because they're so small. Most times they slip right through my hands when I grab them.
So I just use them as a garnish for salads, or add to my special trail mix of almonds, cashews, organic raisins and cranberries. These seeds give my trail mix a nice flavor, but I only add about a teaspoon and that's plenty.
- Jolene Torres
Good, but some negatives
I enjoy hempseeds for their nutritional value, but these may have a little too much fat. As much as I love organic food, you still have to watch our for fat, even good fats.
The serving size on these is too big in my opinion. I usually go by the handful, which is two tablespoons, but the serving size on this brand is three tablespoons, which is a lot. They taste fine, but not happy with the fat content.
- Jesus Telecos
These shelled hempseeds are great. You can use them with foods like salads and soups, or mix them into protein shakes and freshly squeezed natural juice.
I like them with oatmeal, and I even just east them straight out of the pouch. They are healthy and sourced naturally. Very good product.
- Janine T
Didn't know much about hemp seeds. My doctor told me to eat more nuts and raw seeds, including sunflower and hemp seeds. Went online, did research. Hemp seeds are kind of a little wonder food. Healthy and packed with protein.
I sprinkle them on salad and soup and mix in with my almond butter when I have sandwiches. It has a distinct taste, stronger than sunflower seeds, with a slight bitter edge. Love them.
- Julius Turner
Who would have thought?
Who would have thought that hemp would taste so good. I mean, they make ropes with it- I don't want to eat ropes!
I akin their flavor to that of sunflower seeds. Other than that I am not really sure how to describe it other than delicious. I love to eat these on a salad, and I have even had them made into snack bars, similar to Rice Krispies treats, but good for you.
This is an excellent source of omegas, which are really important for me and others with MS (I am not a salmon fan). I blend it up in smoothies and even started grinding it with my coffee. It's a great find.
