VANCOUVER – Natures Hemp Corp. has reported the successful formulation and initial test results of hemp-based coffee creamer by the Richardson Centre of Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals at the University of Manitoba.
“Working with the University of Manitoba, Natures Hemp formulated an all-natural, hemp-based, non-dairy coffee creamer which tastes good and has all the characteristics of conventional creamers without the worrying ingredients,” said Derek Ivany, president and CEO of PUF Ventures, which owns Natures Hemp.
“Coffee drinkers are looking for a healthy alternative to conventional coffee creamers and Natures Hemp all-natural coffee creamer comes with all the healthy benefits of cannabidiols including: healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, iron, vitamin E, and essential amino acids.”
Natures Hemp is a biotechnology and consumer products company focused on unlocking the value of hemp for both business-to-business and business-to-consumer markets.
Hemp is traditionally known for its use in textiles due to its long and strong fibers, but hemp seeds have become the source of a robust health food and alternative medicinal marketplace. Hemp seeds are being recognized as a “superfood,” like flax and chia seeds, because they are high in protein, contain 20 amino acids, and are also high in the fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6. Seeds are typically pressed to produce oil and the remaining byproduct is processed into a flour from which products like pasta, baked goods and other healthy foods can be created. Nature Hemp’s healthy alternative non-dairy coffee creamer is made using the whole seed with added water.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the naturally occurring compound found in the seeds, stalk and flowers of hemp plants. Scientific and clinical research is ongoing but early indications show that CBD is a potential treatment for patients looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions. Potential health benefits from hemp food products include weight suppressant (high in fiber), immune-system booster, and an ability to lower blood pressure and cholesterol.
“Natures Hemp is establishing a premium brand of quality CBD products, with an emphasis on health and wellness, in one of the fastest growing segments in the cannabis industry. The company is focused at unlocking the true value of hemp by developing a new generation of plant-based, nutrient rich CBD food, beverage and health-care related products,” a statement from PUF Ventures said.
