Hemp flour

Hemp flour is a nutritious, gluten-free alternative to wheat flour. It is high in protein and fiber, and has a nutty flavor that works well in both sweet and savory recipes. Here are some tips for using hemp flour in your cooking and baking:

-Because hemp flour is gluten-free, it can be tricky to work with. When substituting it for wheat flour in a recipe, start by replacing only half of the wheat flour with hemp flour. If the dough is too dry, add more liquid; if it’s too wet, add a little more hemp flour.

-Hemp flour is denser than wheat flour, so baked goods made with it will be heavier and have a more compact texture. This is especially true for recipes that call for self-rising or cake flour.

-Hemp flour can be used to make dosas/pancakes, waffles, muffins, quick breads, cookies, cakes and other desserts. It can also be used in savory dishes like dumplings, breading for fried foods, and as a thickener for soups and sauces.

-When shopping for hemp flour, it’s important to look for brands that are certified organic and use non-GMO seeds, to ensure the highest quality and purity.

Hemp foods are a great way to add nutrition to your diet. They are high in protein and fiber, and they contain essential fatty acids that can help improve your health. Hemp recipes are also very versatile, so you can use them in a variety of different dishes. If you’re looking for a healthy and delicious way to improve your diet, try incorporating hemp foods into your meals and snacks. You’ll be glad you did!
