I had been hunting the internet, looking for gluten free foods, and found a recommendation for a gluten free burger manufactured by Ruth's Hemp Foods, which unfortunately has been discontinued. What I found instead was a host of delicious bars and other healthy foods.
There really is a Ruth behind these products, and here is what she has to say:
When I learned about the nutritional powers of the amazing hemp seed, that was it for me. I started producing hemp food. I am in love with food, with health, with love, and want to share this. I am not in love with genetic modification, hydrogenated fats, refined sugars and other garbage. You won't find these in my products.
The inside of the hemp seed is rich in both protein and oil. This oil is rich in essential fatty acids. The protein in hemp is excellent quality, with a high percentage of amino acids. In contrast with most soy, it is not genetically modified.
In addition to Omega 3 fatty acids, hemp contains Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA), which is very rare and found primarily in evening primrose and borage.
Ruth's Certified Organic Hemp Oil contains an even better ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids than other hemp oils. The ratio is 2:1 which is great since the North American diet is lacking in Omega 3. Hemp oil is the only oil that contains Omega 3, Omega 6 and GLA.
