HEMP OIL TIPS AND RECIPES
Clear hemp oil may be incorporated into all meals. Here are some suggested uses and recipes:
SALADS: Clear hemp cooking and salad oil makes Omega enriched salads and reduces the use of undesirable alternatives. Salads are usually made of quite nutritious vegetables, but then doused with dressings made of saturated fats, mono-unsaturated fats and sugars. Many salad oils are tasty, but one should not be confused by “virgin”, “extra virgin”, “organic”, “cold pressed” and other prefixes into thinking that special preparations can make any oil less saturated or less mono-unsaturated. Olive oil always has a fatty acid profile that is nutritionally inferior to canola oil. Because coconut oil is “firm” at room temperature, it has usefulness in many prepared foods and dressings, but no special preparation will make it less than 88% saturated fat– twice as saturated as pork lard.
FRIED VEGETABLES: Clear hemp cooking and salad oil can greatly enhance the nutritional characteristics of any stir fry. Those who are making unstable flax based oils or green hemp oils which are unsuitable for cooking because they contain protein sludge, moisture based slimes and dominant tastes have created the myth that all polyunsaturated oils can not be used for cooking. Their oils are not suitable for cooking, but they choose to ignore scientific studies that prove that there is no deterioration of omega qualities in heated hemp oil and no formation of trans-fatty acids in heated hemp oil unless cooking times and temperatures greatly exceed those characteristic of normal cooking. Our clear hemp cooking and salad oil is sparkling clean. It will not affect the taste of cooked food and will not deteriorate with normal cooking – even many short periods of deep frying. Vegetables fried with clear hemp cooking and salad oil make nutrient contributions which complement the proteins, vitamins,minerals and essential fats supplied by hemp hearts.
OTHER COOKED FOODS: Most of the critical portion of any daily nutritional requirement can be met with a breakfast of four tablespoons of hemp hearts: but as an individual becomes satisfied relative to health and weight, there are more frequent opportunities for some less than perfect nutritional choices – choices that may be made for social reasons or simply for increasing the enjoyment of life. Many imperfect foods can be greatly improved if made with our clear hemp cooking and salad oil. Some baked and fried items will be immensely improved if they are made with Omega rich hemp oil rather than saturated fats. Clear hemp cooking and salad oil has an important role in keeping food interesting and life exciting.
