V-ONE™ Hemp Heart Oil
A cleaner, lighter omega-3 hemp seed oil
Inside every hemp seed is a valuable inner core, appropriately called the ‘hemp heart.’ By removing the outer shell and skillfully pressing only the white hearts of our US-grown hemp seeds, we get an oil that is clean, light, and flavorfully delicate. V-ONE™ hemp heart oil is a nutritional powerhouse that includes an ideal ratio of Omega-6 (LA) and Omega-3 (ALA) fatty acids making for an attractive seed oil perfect for healthier snacks, frozen treats, and cosmetics. Because seed oils are versatile and can influence a broad range of products, V-ONE™ can be a cost-effective, vegan solution to enhance many everyday products in food, skincare, and dietary supplements.
Unique to hemp heart oil is its fatty acid profile. The fats in hemp seeds are almost entirely polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), fatty acids that our bodies can’t make, and which are essential for us to consume in our food. Omega-6 linoleic acid (LA) and Omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) are both PUFAs. While Omega-6s are common in many vegetable oils, nuts, and seeds, hemp oil stands out for delivering the perfect balance of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids of approximately 3:1. Hemp heart oil is also abundant in other micronutrients like vitamin E and oil-soluble bioactives like beta-sitosterol.
V-ONE™ Hemp Heart Oil is a light, straw-colored oil with a mild nutty flavor, similar to pine nuts.

Hemp Hearts vs. Hemp Seeds
Hemp hearts are the dehulled white inner parts of the hemp seed. The hemp hearts are the nutritional powerhouse reserved for sprouting new hemp plants. The removal of the shell presents a much cleaner ingredient that is white, instead of green, and is void of bitter, pungent flavor typically associated with hemp seeds.
