Crude fat determination in hemp seeds

Hemp seeds are rich in protein, fiber and fatty acids, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Beside the rich nutritional profile, hemp seeds provide a range of health benefits. They have antioxidant effects and may reduce symptoms of numerous ailments, improving the health of the heart, skin and joints. Therefore, hemp seeds are often called “superfood”. Hemp seeds are also used as feed, in the cosmetic industry as well as for the production of biofuel. Hemp seeds come from the plant Cannabis sativa, but they do not have a mind-altering effect.
A simple procedure for the crude fat determination in hemp seeds is introduced. The samples are extracted with a Soxhlet extraction using the FatExtractor E-500. The crude fat content is determined gravimetrically after the extract is dried to a constant weight.
