Many of you are familiar with the different types of nut butters. Among these, peanut butter and almond butter are the more popular and recognizable nut butters. Peanut butter is quite popular in many parts of the world and for a simple reason; it is a good source of protein. However, one of the biggest downsides to peanut butter is the fact that it carries allergens for those with an allergy to nuts. Unfortunately, those with nut allergies cannot consume it under any circumstances. Additionally, peanuts and some other field crops can also contain aflatoxins, which are a potent carcinogen.
Thankfully, there is an alternative to nut butters in the form of hemp butter which is made using hemp seeds. Many people might not have heard of it but as more hemp based food products show up in the market, hemp butter is also growing in popularity.
Hemp Butter Nutrition
What really sets hemp butter apart from its counterparts is that it contains a great number of healthy proteins. These proteins are already globular in structure and if you did not already know, the active proteins present inside our bodies are globulins. Which means the human body can create globular proteins from any protein that is consumed, this process is expedited though if the protein is already globular at the beginning. The presence of Omega fatty acids such as Omega 3 and 6, which are the good kinds of fatty acids, further add to the many benefits of hemp butter consumption.
Hemp protein also contains twenty-one different types of amino acids, out of which nine are those which the human body cannot produce. All of these work together to help meet the body’s nutritional needs.
Does Hemp Butter Contain CBD?
This is a question that a lot of people ask whenever they are looking for a hemp based food product. In the case of hemp butter, traditionally it does not have CBD. However, CBD infused butter is available in the market for people who are specifically looking for butter with CBD inside it.
The hemp butters offered here at Bloom Hemp do not contain CBD.
Should You Eat Hemp Butter?
Hemp butter can be a great option for those who are looking to add a nutrient dense food to their daily meal routine. It should be kept in mind, however, that while reported cases of an allergic reaction to hemp seeds are quite rare, they can still happen. So it is important to make sure that you are not allergic to hemp seeds.
At Bloom Hemp, our mission is to honor hemp butter with the attention that it deserves which is why we are offering it in two distinct flavors; raspberry and peanut (the peanut flavoring is derived from smoked oats and quinoa) so that you can enjoy our nutrient packed hemp butter without the risk of consuming any nut-allergens.
