One more thing to be aware of: hemp bread doesn’t contain THC (psychoactive compound) or CBD (medicinal compound). The federal government controls both of these, but hemp seeds don’t contain either. You don’t have to worry about getting high (or getting the munchies) from hemp bread.
Before we delve into how to make hemp bread, it’s probably a good idea to share a little about how hemp flour is made. It is the key ingredient for this delicious recipe, anyway.
A look inside hemp bread
The key ingredient in this bread is, of course, hemp flour.
This yummy hemp flour is a twist on your traditional flour and has a nuttier flavor. If you were to make hemp flour yourself, this is what you’d do. First, you’d crush hemp seeds to get rid of some oil. You’d be left with hemp seed cake. Next, you’d sift the seed cake and then dry it out to create the flour.
This flour is gluten-free and has a really distinct taste. In addition, the flour will also give off a sweet aroma. That means isn’t only healthy, but it tastes good too.
Speaking of health, you’ll definitely enjoy the superfood qualities of hemp flour. It’s very high in protein and provides ten essential amino acids. You probably don’t expect that kind of nutrition from regular bread, but this is something else.
Hemp bread lovers also enjoy the bread because hemp is very eco-friendly. The crop is sustainable and is suitable for many climates. And if you really enjoy hemp bread, you don’t have to worry about it going away any time soon. That’s because modern manufacturing is moving in the direction of sustainability. Also, recent legislation is encouraging people to produce and farm hemp.
This bread is also great for people on low-carb diets and those who don’t want any chemicals like phytates in their bread.
