By: GoodSeed Burger
Not only does this beneficial, whole food source taste great in the form of hemp hearts and shelled seed, their adaptability to our palates are Hemp-based products are continuing to take shape in the natural foods market.
"While the hemp food market has grown tremendously over the last few years, nearly doubling since 2012, it is still a small segment of the natural foods industry. According to Nutrition Business Journal, total sales of natural and organic foods in the U.S. are slated to reach $69.7 billion in 2015, which equates to a nascent penetration of about one-tenth of a percent for hemp foods."
Companies like Good Seed Burgers are increasing the demand for hemp farmers in the U.S. while bringing to attention its many uses as an agricultural, industrial crop.
At Natural Products Expo West, Owner Erin Shotwell explains, "hemp protein is incredibly sustainable and the possibilities with it are endless. Our hemp burgers are inspired by healing foods and macrobiotic and Ayurvedic cooking practices," like the recipes used in Good Seed's Paleo-friendly line made with grain-free, high protein ingredients.
From their beginnings in Austin, TX, Good Seed http://www.goodseedburger.com has expanded to include food stores nationwide. Their high protein, plant-based patties have been displayed on menus throughout Texas's local restaurant scene and are now available at Kroger's, Central Market, Whole Foods Market and Natural Grocers locations across the Southwest, Rocky Mountain, and Midwest regions.
The company continues to expand into natural food markets throughout the Southern and Western region including its recent launch into Whole Foods in Northern California.
GoodSeed's Oliver Ponce will be grilling up some of their award-winning patties during Hemp History Week at Whole Foods locations across the country in support of #HempWeek, a national grassroots campaign created to bring awareness to the prohibition of industrial hemp.
The celebration takes place throughout hundreds of locations around the U.S. Visit www.hemphistoryweek.com to find an event happening near you!
