      Nutiva’s certified organic hemp seeds are grown without any chemical pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. Are Nutiva hemp seeds raw? Yes! Nutiva’s hemp products are cold-processed (under 104°F) from raw, live hemp seeds. Nutiva utilizes a mechanical process to remove the hard shells, yielding our delicious organic shelled hemp seeds.

new-organic-hemp-oilHemp Oil-Nutiva’s raw, unrefined, expeller cold-pressed Canadian Hemp Oil is light green in color, lighter in flavor, and has more GLA content compared to other hemp oils.

CO_jardishCoconut Oil-Coconut oil boasts many health benefits from its healthy Omega fats. One of the good fats, lauric acid, makes up about 50% of coconut oil. Lauric acid is a rare medium-chain fatty acid found in human breast milk. It supports healthy metabolism and is being studied for its anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial health-protecting properties.

Besides its internal nutritional value, Nutiva Coconut Oil has benefits topically too, making it a luscious and soothing massage and body oil for dry and or damaged skin. It can be used on the skin to remove makeup, moisturize and relieve dried or itchy skin. It can also be used on the hair for a deep conditioning and moisturizing treatment.

Chia-Seeds-BagChia Seeds-Each seed is packed with fiber, protein, minerals, omega-3, and antioxidants. Chia’s bland flavor makes it versatile for use in recipes both savory and sweet, and it swells to 12 times its weight in liquid within 10 minutes.

Enjoy Nutiva Chia Seeds on yogurt and oatmeal, or in smoothies. Add them to sauces as a thickener and to muffins and cakes as an egg replacement.
