Hemp seed nutrition and the buzz about Meluka Australia’s hemp seed honey

If you’ve followed us for a while, you’ll know we are passionate about showcasing the unique health benefits of Australia’s native botanical species. This week we’re shining the spotlight on the powerful health benefits of hemp seeds. 


Meluka Australia’s infused range combines our native raw honey with nutrient-rich, plant-based whole foods.  The infused range is complemented by our native honey infused with hemp seed, combining the benefits of our native raw honey with nutrient-rich hemp seed powder in a first of its kind on the market product that is unique, nutritious and delicious. 


What’s in Meluka Australia’s hemp seed honey

We start with our native wildflower honey, produced by bees foraging from the pristine healing grounds of Australia’s Bungawalbin Valley, in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. This pristine area is home to native Australian flora such as tea tree, eucalyptus, jelly bush, and other seasonal wildflowers.

The Buzz About Meluka Australia’s Hemp Seed Honey

Our native honey is certified organic, single-origin, raw, unprocessed and fully traceable back to the master beekeeper. Post-harvest, our native honey is infused with organic hemp seed powder creating thick, luscious honey with a sweet and nutty flavor and visible hemp seed goodness. Find our product range here.


What is hemp seed powder? 

Let’s start with the seed.  Hemp seeds are the seeds of a variety of the cannabis Sativa plant species, minus the psychoactive compound found in marijuana.

The whole hemp seed is cold-pressed to separate the seed from the oil.  Separation by cold milling and sieving creates a super fine powder without the use of heat or chemicals. 

Now we know a little more about hemp seed powder, here are 5 reasons we think you’ll love Meluka Australia’s hemp seed honey!

 

Hemp seeds are a powerhouse of nutrition

There’s a lot of buzz around hemp seeds and rightly so! Hemp seeds are a plant protein, rich in nutritious compounds, including vitamins A, C, D, E and high concentrations of the B-complex vitamins including thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid.  



Hemp seeds are high in healthy fats

We know hemp seeds are high in protein, but did you know they’re also rich in essential fatty acids. These are the good fats we want to be consuming! Our bodies don’t produce them, so we need to absorb them from the food we eat.



Hemp seed honey for healthy energy support

Protein gives us a feeling of satiety. A great way to incorporate hemp seed honey into your diet is a spoonful in your pre-workout snack or post-workout smoothie. It’s been said that bodybuilders prefer hemp protein powder instead of soy or pea protein, determined by quality and taste of hemp seed being far superior. 


Something a little unique

Meluka Australia’s native honey infused with hemp seed powder is the first of its kind on the market product.  The perfect combination of sweet and nutty and thick and luscious, this blend is the one you’ll call on when you want something a little bit well, special.  Hint, pair with salty blue cheese on your cheeseboard and wow your family and friends!



The perfect ingredient for your raw recipes

We like our raw recipes to be quick, simple and tasty, and there’s nothing like creating something delicious in your kitchen from scratch!  As well as sweetening our smoothies, yogurt and homemade muesli and granola, we love to use our hemp seed honey in recipes for raw slices and protein balls.  Here’s a bit of cooking inspiration with a recipe that’s always a big hit and the perfect lunchbox snack for school or work.
