Sustainability is an important topic to touch on when it comes to food. According to the City of Vancouver, it is a priority to create a system for producing, processing, distributing and consuming food that is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.
In order to achieve this, the first step is to focus on how we grow our food. Minimizing the use of fertilizers and pesticides is beneficial to our ecosystem. This is why we encourage people to choose organic!
Hemp is our planet’s best friend. Its plant is naturally resistant to pests, eliminating the need for harmful pesticides that can cause soil contamination and damages to the environment. Hence, it has been named one of the best eco-friendly ingredients out there!
Also known as a Superfood, hemp should take credit for its impressive nutrition profile as well.
- It is a complete protein with all nine essential amino acids
- It has an ideal ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acids
- It is a good source of fibre
- It provides B-complex vitamins, phosphorous, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese
