Hemp is the environment’s friend. It grows fast, absorbing high levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide into its cellulose fibres. It’s also almost waste-free since nearly every part of the plant can be usefully processed.
Raw hemp seeds are cleaned and finely sieved, removing any debris, before running through metal and stone detectors, guaranteeing only pure seed is further processed. Whole seeds, including hulls are gently cold pressed, without risk of heat exposure. This degrades fragile essential fatty acids, while the rich oil is filtered off and stored, leaving the solid protein-loaded residue. Naturya employ cold and mechanical techniques to process hemp – unlike other oil extraction techniques using harmful solvent chemicals like hexane.
The dry hemp cake is milled through a vibrating sieve, removing all seed, to leave a fine, nutty, brown powder.
