Z-Company specialises in hemp products for human consumption. Its range includes hulled hempseeds, as well as hemp protein powder, flour, fibres and oil, all of which are shipped all over the world. Certified as organic, and supervised by SKAL, it also offers non-organic products.
Female hemp plants produce the most nutritious seeds in the world. Hempseed provides a healthy dose of protein, fibre, antioxidants, minerals and fatty acids. More than 30% fat, it is exceptionally rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), such as omega-6 and omega-3, which are present in a perfectly balanced ratio of 3:1 (respectively). Hemp also contains an interesting array of vitamins and minerals.
Whole hempseed provides crunch and contains a lot of fibre. There are many ways to eat it; once roasted, it may be added to salads, smoothies and other meals, or eaten straight as a snack. As well as its retail offerings, Z-Company supplies whole hempseed in bulk for production.
Hulling the seeds, meanwhile, adds appeal by making them easier to eat. The hulled seeds, which taste a bit like nuts, can also be added to favourite foods as an ingredient, or eaten as a snack.
The oil is made from whole seeds, which are pressed at temperatures lower than 40°C. Z-Company's totally natural, cold-pressed hempseed oil is high in omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids.
