Most seeds have 100 to 115 calories per 2 tablespoons, and a serving of 1 to 2 tablespoons per day is an excellent addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle. Just 2-3 tablespoons of these hemp hearts can add a nutritional boost to your diet. You can eat them raw, sprinkle them on your food, mix them into shakes and smoothies, or even make milk with them. Hemp seeds can be added to rice, daal, sabzi, salads, fruit bowls, khichdi, pasta, smoothies or juices.
A 3-tablespoon serving of hemp seeds contains 10 grams of protein, and a smaller 1-tablespoon serving contains more than 3 grams of protein. Hemp seeds are a great source of nutrition and have many health benefits. In every 30 grams (g) of seeds, or approximately 3 tablespoons, there are 9.46 g of protein. They also contain fiber which can cause digestive complaints such as bloating, nausea, or constipation in large quantities.
Hemp seeds are part of the hemp plant and can be eaten raw or used to make milk, oil, cheese substitutes or protein powder.

However, it is important to note that there is not enough clinical research data to support claims that hemp is a safe or effective treatment for any condition. Hemp seeds stored in this way may contain unhealthy trans fats, so it is important to be aware of this when adding them to your diet. Hemp seeds are different from chia and flaxseeds in terms of texture; they do not thicken the foods to which they are added. This is an advantage when added to children's food since the food will continue to taste and feel expected.
Omega-3 fatty acids found in hemp seeds have been linked to improved acne symptoms; however, more research is needed to determine the extent of these effects. Athletes and others undergoing drug testing should be aware that the consumption of hemp products may cause urine tests to be unsatisfactory. One of the omega-6 fatty acids in hemp seeds is gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which can have anti-inflammatory effects similar to those of medications such as ibuprofen. It is important to consult your doctor before adding hemp seeds to your diet as they can interact with some medications and cause certain side effects.
