Nutiva offers two types of shelled hempseeds. Our certified organic seeds are grown without any chemical pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. Our non-organic seeds are grown without any pesticides or herbicides, but are not certified organic. Both varieties are cold-processed with oxygen removed. These steps ensure freshness and help protect the delicate Omega-3 fatty acids. It's part of Nutiva's commitment to Nourishing People and Planet. Shelled hemp seeds (or hempnuts) taste similar to sesame or sunflower seeds and can be added to almost any recipe. USDA certified organic; certified as organically grown and processed by QAI. All seeds are non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms). Ingredients: 100% raw shelled hemp seeds. Storage: It is best to keep our seeds refrigerated and in an air-tight container.
