There are multiple uses for hemp oil, which is part of its rise in popularity. Hemp oil can easily be added in food as a vitamin supplement due to its high level of vitamins E, B, B1, and B2. Hemp oil also contains potassium, magnesium, and fatty acids, such as omega-3 and omega- 6, in addition to being rich in protein and antioxidants.
Hemp oil is often used in shampoos, lotions, soaps, and other beauty or cosmetic products around the world. It can also be found as an ingredient in plastics, paint, dressings, lubrication and even bio-diesel fuel. As such, using hemp oil can be an experience individuals desire since it has so many benefits.
My personal favourite is how Hemp Seed Oil can bring out the flavours in your food. It has a simple, nutty taste which can cause a flavour explosion when adding it to your cooked meals. Add some Hemp Seed Oils to your veg after roasting, to your cooked pizza and pasta or drizzle it on top of your salad.
Hemp Seed Oil has a low smoking point. This means that when it is brought to a high temperature, the oil is smokey, changes in tastes and can lose it’s nutrients. Hemp Seed Oil is therefore best used at a medium temperature, or better – after your meal has been cooked. For example, to drizzle it over your soup at serving.
