Hemp Seed – Too Good For Australians to Eat

posted in: | 0

Brisbane, Australia (PRWEB) February 19, 2006

Locally established hemp distributor, Planet Hemp Products, exported Australian grown and processed human-grade hemp food to China this week.

Planet Hemp Products is the first company in Australia to export hemp food to China. For many years, China has been one of the largest producers and exporters of hemp seed and hemp fibre products in the world.

“It is a credit to the Beattie Government practices, persistence and AusTrade that we are in a position to begin competing in such a sustainable agricultural industry”, said Thomas, general manager of Planet Hemp Products.

The first commercial industrial hemp crops were sown in Queensland in 2002. In that same year, the Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) recommended that the Australian Health Council approve hemp seed foods for human consumption. For the first time in Australian history, the Health Council of Australia has ignored a FSANZ recommendation leaving Australia as the last western democracy in which hemp seed foods for humans remain controlled by State Criminal legislation.

The only hemp foods currently available in Australia are for our pets. Ironically, the Australian made pet food contains the same Australian hemp seeds contained in human grade food that Planet Hemp Products now exports.

Planet Hemp Products began working with Austrade offices in London, New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver and Tokyo late last year to introduce Australian made hemp foods to the world.

Hemp seed does not contain any THC, the drug; it is a superior source of easily digestible and complete proteins, dietary fibre and the good fats – omega 3 and omega 6. Hemp as an agricultural crop is environmentally and commercially sustainable to grow in many parts of Australia.

Due to the legal restrictions in Australia, Planet Hemp Products was inadvertently lead into the pet food industry. It was a decision that would change the face of the Australian hemp food and pet food industries forever as Planet Hemp Products began exporting its range of Dr Skoobie’s Snax and Superior Health Choice dog kibble earlier this month to the USA.

Planet Hemp Products are a family owned company that began in 2004 when they executed the largest hemp seed contract in Australia. In 2007, Hemp seed production will have increased by over 1,000% with licensed crops in Queensland, Tasmania and Victoria.

“We are now in discussions with the largest and best hemp seed processor in north America to gain the use of their processing experience. We have also discussed supplying Canada and the USA with Australian grown hemp seed by-products in their cold season,” said Thomas.

The Federal Government is reluctant to change the status quo regarding hemp seed foods in Australia for people. One of the stated reasons is that it will confuse the Australian public.

This new situation is creating more confusion as many informed Australians are wondering why it seems everyone else can benefit from hemp seed foods, except them. Even our cousins across the Tasman are permitted to consume hemp seed oil.

SEED SHOPS: A HAVEN FOR SEED LOVERS

posted in: | 0

 

Everyone has their own share of passions in life. Different characters present various preferences and hobbies. There are those that are into adventurous activities like outdoor experiences, mountain climbing, trekking, wall climbing and the likes. Some are into extreme sports such as racing, BMX challenges, skateboarding, wakeboarding and a whole lot of other extreme sports activities. Most common are the sporty type personality which prefers doing the usual sport games such as basketball, volleyball, soccer, etc. There are also those who are in the quieter and relaxed field of enjoyment, this includes yoga sessions, fitness programs, meditation courses and spas. For some, they find their calling in nature oriented activities. The aforementioned hobbies and recreational activities seem to be quite the usual for us, except for the nature type of recreation. Here, I want to share with a glimpse on how to enjoy nature’s wonder.

Seed Planting

A plant starts as a seed. A seed is like a baby in humans wherein it must be well taken care of to ensure a good by product as it grows. Planting must be a passion rather than an obliged way of working. If you treat planting as a form of work, you will less likely appreciate and pamper the plant you are taking care of. The key to producing a healthy and productive plant is taking passion on how you treat them. If a person has the passion in what he is doing, he will less likely take for granted what he is doing and leave things hanging when he’s not in the mood of continuing what he has started.

Planting can be very time consuming depending on the type of plant. But most plants do not take much of your time when they are already full grown and maintenance is all that is needed. The most time consuming part in planting is at the start. You have to regularly monitor the progress of the plant and as well as the possible bugs and problems that might hinder the growth of you seedling. In acquiring seeds there are a lot of seed shops available. Seed shops can be found on markets or online. I prefer online seed shops for their wider variety of seeds to choose from. Online purchase maybe more costly but you are rest assured of its quality.

Purchasing on Seeds

There is a slight misconception on the functions of a seed bank and seed shop that might confuse interested plant growers. Seed banks are like gene bank for seeds, they store seeds as a way of preservation in case of unexpected calamities that might hit a certain population of a plant variety. While seed shops on the other hand is a legal business that sells cultivated seeds. You can find a variety of seeds to choose from on several online seed shops. Seed shops are not usually processing hybrid seeds but they o have stocks of it. Hybrid seeds are usually processed on seed banks. Hybrid seeds mean that there is a cross of genetic feature from two different seeds from the same plant variety. Hybrids are goaled into better yield as compared to traditional seeds. Seed shops are only retailers of seeds and not processing plants, there might be some but it son unlikely to happen.

A few of the common seed varieties found on seed shops are cannabis seeds, female seeds, skunk seeds, auto-flowering seeds, veggie seeds, etc. Most online seed shops are selling cannabis seeds which are rare type of seeds. Veggie seeds can be found easily on markets or supermalls. Online seed shops do offer cheap seeds to choose from considering the variety of seeds they are selling. If you plan to purchase rare seeds online, use your browser’s search engine to get a list of possible choices.

Hemp Seed For Weight Reduction

posted in: | 0

Hemp seeds, contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain healthy human life. No other single plant source has the essential amino acids in such an easily digestible form, nor has the essential fatty acids in as perfect a ratio to meet human nutritional needs.

Approximately 35% of the weight of hempseed is hempseed oil, an edible oil that contains about 80% essential fatty acids(EFAs); i.e., linoleic acid, omega-6 linoleic acid 55%), alpha-linolenic acid, omega-3 alpha linoleic acid(22%), in addition to gamma-linolenic acid(GLA), omega-6 GLA ( 1-4%) and stearidonic acid(SDA), omega-3 SDA( 0-2%). Whole hempseed also contains about 25% of a highly-digestible protein, where 1/3 is edestin and 2/3 are albumins. Its amino acid profile is close to “complete” when compared to more common sources of proteins such as meat, milk, eggs and soy. The proportions of linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid in one tablespoon (15 ml) per day of hemp oil provides human daily requirements for EFAs. As opposed to flaxseed oil, hemp oil can be used continuously without getting a deficiency or other imbalance of EFAs. This has been demonstrated in a clinical study, where the daily ingestion of flaxseed oil decreased the endogenous production of GLA.

Hempseed is an adequate source of calcium and iron. Whole hempseeds are also a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, zinc ,copper and manganese.

Hempseed contains no gluten and therefore would not trigger symptoms of celiac disease

There are eight amino acids the human body cannot make and two more the body cannot make in sufficient quantity, so they are essential to life. A diet deficient in any one of them will eventually cause disease and death. These essential amino acids, along with eleven others the body can make from them, are chained together in accordance to genetic guidelines, via RNA formats from DNA blueprints, into structural proteins that give body to life, and into enzymes (globular proteins) that are needed for the mechanics of living.

Hemp is not unique in containing all the essential amino acids in its embryonic seed. Flax seeds also contain all the essential amino acids as do many other seeds in the plant kingdom. What is unique about hemp seed protein is that 65% of it is globulin edistin. That is the highest in the plant kingdom. If you are on a rapid weight loss diet, hemp can give you the nutrition you need with the fewest calories.

Globulins are one of seven classes of simple proteins. Simple proteins are derived from amino acids and contain no non-protein substances. Globulins are in seeds and animal blood. Edistins are found in seeds; serum globulin is in blood. Edistins are plant globulins. And globulins along with albumins are classified as globular proteins. All enzymes, antibodies, many hormones, hemoglobin and fibrogin (the body converts fibrogin into non-soluble, fibrin, a blood clotting agent) are globular proteins. They are responsible for carrying out the main work of living.The best way to insure the body has enough amino acid material to make the globulins is to eat foods high in globulin proteins.

Since hemp seed protein is 65% globulin edistin, and also includes quantities of albumin, its protein is readily available in a form quite similar to that found in blood plasma. Consuming hemp seeds provides the body all the essential amino acids required to maintain health, and provides the necessary kinds and amounts of amino acids the body needs to make human serum albumin and serum globulins like the immune enhancing gamma globulins. Eating hemp seeds could assist people suffering from immune deficiency diseases.

Hemp foods are expanding onto the shelves of grocery and natural food stores across North America. By definition, these are foods containing whole hemp seeds or the oil, nut (hulled seed) and/or flour (ground seed cake) derived from the seeds.Several examples of currently available hemp food products include salad dressings, nutrition bars, breads, cookies, granola, waffles, nut butter, chips, pasta, frozen deserts and cold-pressed oil supplements. These products are sold for much more than their “hemp cachet” alone; manufacturers promote hemp foods for their exceptional nutritional and taste benefits.

Like other oil seeds, the hemp nut consists mainly of oil (typically 44%), protein (33%) and dietary fiber and other carbohydrates (12%, predominantly from residues of the hull). In addition, the nut contains vitamins (particularly the tocopherols and tocotrienols of the Vitamin E complex), phytosterols and trace minerals. Overall, hemp’s main nutritional advantage over other seeds lies in the composition of its oil, i.e. its fatty acid profile, and in its protein which contains all of the essential amino acids in nutritionally significant amounts and in a desirable ratio.

Hemp oil typically contains less than 10% saturated fatty acids, and no trans-fatty acids, which are particularly detrimental to our blood cholesterol balance.

Hemp protein is also of exceptionally high quality in terms of amino acid (AA) composition and protein structure, the latter affecting digestibility and utilization by the human body.

Hemp’s nutritional advantage over other sources of fats and protein thus lies in its highly desirable balance of basic nutrients. Simply put, when eating hemp seed, nut and/or oil, our body obtains much of what it needs without the caloric ballast of non-essential nutrients. Yet, unlike fish and flax oil supplements and assorted protein powders, properly processed hemp seed offers these benefits with the additional bonus of a nice flavor profile – hemp tastes good. Fresh cold pressed hemp oil and hemp nut, particularly when toasted, add a pleasant nutty flavor to many dishes and packaged food products. Hemp nut and oil therefore are attractive both nutritionally and are appetizing, making them modern food sources.
