Members of my house have started drinking Hemp Milk and Rice Milk. No more Cow Milk! We like the taste of both. I also like the fact that the hemp milk has omega and other nutrients in it.
However, my son is three years old and we have discovered he is allergic to nuts because a family member gave him a cashew to eat, then his eyes began to swell up like Garfield the cat. I had him
tested for food allergies and the test revealed he is allergic to nuts and soy. So I don’t give him any nut products or soy products. My question for you is: “Is hemp a nut or a seed, is the hemp
milk derived from a nut or a seed???” I need to know other alternatives if in fact it is a nut. I do not want to give him something toxic to him.
Answer by Dherbs
Hemp is a seed, not a nut, so hemp seed milk is okay for him.
Nuts cashews – peanuts, soy
Grains – rice, oats
Fruit – almond, coconut, banana, date
Hey, I’ll do an article that will be up on Dherbs early next week!
Peace and Love!
