Hemp Granola Is Gluten Free

Hemp Seed is gluten-free in its pure kind. It's not at all carefully related to the gluten grains wheat, barley, and rye.

But regrettably, that's not the end of the story for hemp, which is a valuable source of fiber, magnesium and vital fatty acids. So with all this adaptability and nutrition consisted of in hemp, what's the catch when it pertains to the gluten-free diet?

The catch with hemp, as with a lot of other grain and grain-like items, is that hemp often is grown in rotation with other crops, including gluten grains (especially wheat). And farmers regularly use the exact same devices to harvest, store and transportation hemp as they do those gluten grains. That's how hemp can get contaminated.

It's not ensured that hemp will be cross-contaminated with gluten, obviously. Unfortunately, there's a pretty good opportunity of it. A few research studies have found traces of the gluten protein in samples of hemp flour, in at least one case well above the U.S. legal limitation of less than 20 parts per countless gluten.
