Hemp for health! The oil from cold-pressed hemp seeds is nature's best source of essential fatty acids, with Omega-3 and -6 in the ideal 3:1 ratio that the human body needs. Hempseeds are also very high in protein, energy and fibre, and contain many trace elements. And of course, hemp is nature-friendly, needing no pesticides or fertilisers to grow.
Hemp seed foods for human consumption will be allowed in NZ and Australia by 2018!
We are already allowed to sell hemp seed oil in NZ and for export (but not to Australia). KiwiCanna food-grade Hemp Meal, Hemp Flour and Hemp Protein Powder are also already available as food-grade animal feeds. In 2017 Food Safety Australia-New Zealand approved hemp seed foods for human consumption, and the rules are expected to change by 2018. Watch this space!
