A complete mineral assay was performed on the sterilized hemp seeds by the Ohio Hempery. The following is that information. Thanks to them!
It can be seen that hemp is especially high in the most needed minerals: Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Sulfur. It is also low in heavy metals like Strontium, Thorium, Arsenic, and Chromium.
The vitamin results were disappointing until you see that hemp's vitamins compares favorably with other grains. Vitamins are mostly provided by fresh vegetables. You would have to eat over a pound of hemp seeds to meet your RDA in many vitamins. The heat from the sterilization process does affect the vitamin content, vitamins are damages by heat. The fresh green leaves of the hemp plant could not be tested for nutrition due to the fact they are illegal to posses.
ELEMENT LEVELS (PPM)
Hemp seeds contain up to 24% protein. A handful of seed provides the minimum daily requirement for adults. Ohio Hempery's testing confirms that hemp has a high quality protein content that contains all eight essential amino acids in the correct proportions that humans need. I have found in my own research that hemp has actually nine essential amino acids but there seems to be a debate in the scientific community how many essential amino acids there actually are. Some say eight, others say nine. The basic proteins in hemp are easy to digest. They are comprised of 80% edestine, the most digestible of all protein types. When scientists developed the base vegetable protein model the called it "edestine". The used hemp to find it. Relatively unknown, hemp protein is the model Soybeans contain a higher total percentage of protein, but these are complex proteins that many people find difficult to digest. Hemp was once the basis of the edstine model of vegetable protein. The very basis of proteins and the vegetable default model.
All this is not to mention that these seeds taste great. Hemp seeds can be used as a protein and to enhance flavor in any recipe.
