    Hemp Seed. Good as Flax?






    I'm hooked on this cereal.....


    I know, I know, it's got 6 grams of sugar per serving but it tastes so good. I eat it as part of meal 1 occasionally. Trader Joe's sells it.

    Is hemp seed as good as flax for EFA's?
    it has 400 mg omega-3 per serving.

    ok here i am....hemp queen.

    hemp is a very good EFA source and a believe that everyone should alternate flax and hemp (one has higher omega 6 and the other is higher in omega 3's). you need to look on the package to see what the ingrediants are and also take into account that EFA's are very sensitive, if the hemp was cooked at a temp higher than 250 then its spoiled and if the cereal has a shelf life of more than 6 months then its no good. Once hemp hits the air it is only good for 6-8 weeks. Keeping the cereal in the fridge will prolong the shelf life.

    Well, hello to you, too. IIRC, you posted that link a long, long time ago.

    peanut butter often upsets my stomach, I wonder if using hemp in its place would help me avoid those discomforts????
