The cannabis industry continues to take the world by storm. Various parts of the Hemp plant continue to be utilized for medicinal, cosmetic, and of course nutritional purposes.

With the ever shifting focus of nutrition enthusiasts into what is best and most natural for the body, it should come as no surprise that Hemp flour has entered the stage. It’s goal: nutritional domination. 

Hemp flour is gluten-free, as it does not come from any wheat products. It is created by extracting the oils from hemp plants and grinding the remaining particles down to a fine powder. This powerfully nutritious flour is then used as a replacement for other flours, or is used in combination in assorted baked goods such as crackers, breads, cookies, tortillas, and cakes.

Just as with other flours used for baking, Hemp flour holds zero limits for it’s usability and flexibility. However, one recipe creator recommends using chia seeds as a binding agent to vegan-friendly baked goods when cooking with hemp flour. 

The list of benefits for hemp flour does not disappoint. If it’s impressive list of amino and fatty acids alone isn’t enough to convince the masses, there’s also the fact that it is rich in fiber content and high in protein. Hemp flour also boasts an enthralling blend of vitamins and minerals including zinc, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, potassium, and many others. 

When thinking of the next recipe including any type of flour, be sure to substitute in hemp flour in lieu of any others. It is sure to please taste buds and nutritional goals. Cheers to healthier dining options.
