Hemp pancakes with spinach and chanterelles

Today we are going to take a closer look at cannabis products and specifically hemp flour. This is a flour made from ground parts of the seeds of Cannabis sativa L. hemp, which is the one that does not contain the psychoactive THC. The lack of this cannabinoid is compensated for by the enormity of the active substances that the seeds contain. Hemp flour has many vitamins, such as: A, B, C, E and D, minerals such as calcium, potassium, chromium, zinc, selenium, or omega 3, 6 and 9 acids. Ingredients contained in them support the cardiovascular system, digestive system, nervous system, cleanse the blood of toxins and accelerate metabolism. It is the only flour that contains 20 known amino acids

, including 9 amino acids necessary for building new tissues, which our body is unable to produce on its own. hemp flour

Why do I use hemp

flour in my kitchen?

When composing a meal, I try to choose valuable foods, if possible, replacing with less valuable ones that do little good. An example of such a food can be wheat flour , which does not have beneficial properties for the body, and yet it could be replaced with healthy hemp flour

at least partially. Its taste is somewhat reminiscent of that of sunflower seeds with a slightly nutty finish, which makes it suitable for dry dishes but also combines interestingly with sweet flavors. It is quite a difficult flour, as it is not as finely ground as, for example, wheat flour, so in most dishes I use it by combining it with other flours, such as corn, spelt, millet or buckwheat. For baked goods such as muffins, breads or sponge cakes, I recommend blending the flour in a cup blender. ingredients for
