How hemp seeds are de-shelled industrially

If you’re wondering how hemp seeds are processed and de-hulled on an industrial scale such as with the shelled hemp seeds then stick around because we’re going to be delving into that subject right now. We’re going to use hemp buds shelled hemp seeds as an example to explain the process to you.

Hempiness shelled hemp seeds are grown in the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) and processed in Lithuania at a state-of-the-art facility with advanced technologies designed for processing hemp buds on a huge scale. Their aim is to supply customers with 100% organic products of the very highest quality.

Hemp seeds arrive from farms across the Baltic States and are carefully labelled so that each batch can be tested for quality and be tracked back to the original farm where it was grown.

The hemp seeds are then washed and sorted to ensure that only the finest quality seeds are used in the final product. The hemp seeds first go through a process of grading, where sieves are used to separate the smaller seeds from the larger ones. This is so that seeds can be separated off to be used in the production of other hempseed food products such as cold-pressing the seeds to make hemp seed oil, different sizes are more suitable for different uses.

The dehulling process involves several mechanical procedures including gravity separation and lots of vibration which separates the seeds from their hulls (shells). This is all done by highly specialised machinery which has been developed specifically for this task. The processing plant is very careful not to damage the integrity of the hemp hearts, as of course they want their final product to be in pristine condition.

The hulls are sent off to become hemp seed cake, which is later turned into hemp flour and hemp protein powder.
