EarthNews Radio: Hemp-Based Foods
You've heard of hemp products such as paper and clothing. But have you heard of hemp-based foods?
Jerry Kay spoke to Ruth Shamai of Ruth's Hemp Food, a Canadian maker of food using hemp ingredients:
Shamai says that products such as hemp oil and hemp seed add nutrition to burgers, tortilla chips and salad dressing, as well as a number of other products. Including hemp in your eating is just an extension of a healthy lifestyle.
Hemp gives farmers another planting alternative and as well. Shamai was part of the movement to legalize hemp production in Canada; the Canadian government did just that in 1998.
