Product Description Nutiva Organic, Raw, Shelled Hempseed from non-GMO, sustainably-farmed Canadian hemp is the richest known source of polyunsaturated fats, containing a perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 linoleic acid and Omega-3 linoleic acid. In fact, the hempseed's balance of Omega 3 to 6 fats is the perfect proportion for human dietary needs, making hemp an ideal addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle. Hemp is loaded with all 20 amino acids (including the nine essential), and provides the added bonus of good-for-you essential fatty acids.

However this does not mean that the freshness of the product has been compromised whatsoever. From Nutiva, the product still remains fresh even without a vacuum seal and does not lose any product integrity.
