78% of People Surveyed Want More Holistic Health Support This Season
MINNEAPOLIS and WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Dec. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Manitoba Harvest, a leading hemp food manufacturer and pioneer in the natural foods industry and a wholly owned subsidiary of Tilray, Inc., introduces a hemp hearts health hack in time for the holidays. As many people jump back into previously paused holiday traditions, it’s important to remember that while this time of year can be joyous, it can also be extremely tiring and stressful. This makes it even more critical to build in simple practices supportive of healthy eating, while still enjoying favorite traditions.
Fortunately, Manitoba Harvest, a pioneer and leader in hemp-based foods, offers a simple way to support overall wellbeing by enhancing the nutritional value of holiday favorites with Organic Hemp Hearts.
Add Some (Hemp) Hearts to the Holidays
Knowing that people could use a holistic health boost during the holidays, it’s important to understand what Hemp Hearts can deliver. Each serving of Hemp Hearts offers 10g of plant protein, 12g of Omegas 3 & 6, all 9 essential amino acids1, and is rich in nutrients like magnesium and zinc. Hemp Hearts are also easy to incorporate into any recipe.
The company also conducted a survey2 to better understand how people are feeling about their health going into the holiday season. While no shock to learn that a majority of survey respondents plan to do some sort of baking during the upcoming holiday months, a dramatic 78% said they would make their favorite holiday baked goods healthier (while preserving taste) if they could. And, only around half feel like they get the nutrition needed to support their health during the holiday season.
1 Hemp amino acid profile per 30g serving contains Alanine (0.36g), Arginine (1.37g), Aspartic Acid (1g), Cystine (0.22g), Glutamic Acid (1.6g), Glycine (0.39g), and Histidine (0.20g).

The Gift of Holistic Health
With amazing versatility, these little seeds can be an important part of any meal, and also happen to be compatible across multiple diets including vegan, keto, paleo, and gluten-free. While Hemp Hearts can be added to any baked recipe, here are a few to consider this holiday season: Chocolate Oat Muffins, Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Energy Bites and Hemp Hearts Chocolate Chip Cookies.
As a B-Corp certified company since 2014, Manitoba Harvest takes only the freshest, highest quality hemp seeds from field to table. Additionally, Hemp Hearts do not contain any additives, preservatives, fillers, or artificial ingredients and are Non-GMO Project Verified.
