    Default Difference between Hemp Hearts and Hemp Seeds

    Can anyone tell me what the difference is?

    My HFS sells Hemp Seeds.

    Thanks!

    To the best of my knowledge there are no seed shells in the Hemp Hearts. The seed shells stick into your gums. To my way of thinking it's like buying sunflower seeds with the shells and then shelled sunflower seeds. Hopefully Joan will be able to shed more light on the subject on Monday.

    I've been assuming the "hearts" are the same thing as the seeds I've had from Manitoba Harvest. They are no shells and they're kinda like miniature pine nuts. Does that sound like the hearts?

    I *think* they are the same, but not sure. I have ordered some of Joan's Hemp Hearts, but I was also too impatient, so I bought Nutiva's hulled Hemp seeds today at Whole Foods. They are tasty, and smaller than I thought they would be. I will update when my order from Joan arrives.

    I got the Nutiva shelled hemp seeds and a sample from Joan. I was ordering from her but she was backordered and I, too, was impatient! [:I] The Nutiva seeds were more moist than Joan's. Not sure what that means. However, the tastes were the same and there were no shells that I could tell in either. HTHs!
