A soft green color Guenard’s virgin hemp seed oil is characterized by a fresh and subtly herbaceous scent and flavor. Produced by a gentle cold pressing of French hemp seeds, every step of the production of this oil is carefully done in an attempt to retain as much flavor and nutritional value as possible. Virgin hemp seed oil is especially rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, some of which the body cannot produce on its own, making hemp seed oil a rich source of nutritionally valuable antioxidants and vitamins. .
Like most oils, hemp seed should be kept out of direct sunlight to avoid oxidation and the development of “off” flavors. When cooking with hemp seed oil, keep your temperatures low. Because of its low smoke point, hemp seed oil will break down in the presence of heat and quickly lose its nutritional value. While we don’t recommend stir-frying with this oil, it is perfect for other culinary applications like dressings and sauces. Drizzle it over vegetables or pizza. Finish steamed veggies, beans, or rice, with freshly ground black pepper and a generous pour of hemp seed oil. Its delicious taste is a great addition to so many flavors and dishes, making this one of Guenard’s most delightful products available. Try it for yourself today and taste the difference!.
