HNINA HEMP Launches Hemp Extract Edibles Line at Expo West



LOS ANGELES, CA
Friday, March 8th, 2019

HNINA GOURMET, a healthy gourmet chocolate, snacks & spreads company will be exhibiting for the 4th time at Natural Products Expo West in Annaheim, CA, (booth #8502) and unveiling four new products under its new banner HNINA HEMP.

HNINA GOURMET debuted in 2014 with ground breaking Raw Dark Chocolate & Sprouted Nuts & Seeds Truffles; soon followed by Raw Dark Chocolate Bars, Sprouted Nuts & Seeds Snacks and Raw Cacao Sprouted Nuts & Seeds Spreads. HNINA caters to the health purist, sourcing organically certified raw unradiated & unprocessed ingredients and the healthiest whole sweeteners while using zero additives. HNINA's sustainable practices even dictate the use of plastic-free compostable packaging.

HNINA’s social conscience is also clear with the use of only Fair-Trade ingredients and plastic-free compostable packaging
For health-minded HNINA, incorporating hemp extract into its pure products is a natural step. HNINA HEMP’s first product launched last month and is already distinguished as the purest hemp extract chocolate on the market:

Hemp Extract Raw Dark Chocolate Bars – Organic, fair-trade 85% raw dark chocolate, lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup, pure vanilla bean, (no emulsifiers), high dose full-spectrum hemp extract & the activating herbs ashwagandha, ginger & chamomile (0.5oz Bebe 45mg - SRP $9.99 , 1.5oz Mademoiselle 135mg – SRP $28.99, 2.5oz Madame 225mg – SRP $44.99).

HNINA dark chocolate bars contain raw cacao, pure maple syrup, vanila bean, activating herbs, and hemp extract

HNINA HEMP now unveils hemp extract versions of HNINA GOURMET’s best-sellers from each of its three other collections:

  1. Hemp Extract Raw Dark Chocolate Truffles – Almond+Hazelnut: Organic raw cacao, raw sprouted almonds & hazelnuts lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup, pure vanilla bean, full-spectrum hemp extract & activating herbs (2.5oz “Boulder” size 85mg - SRP $19.99).
  2. Hemp Extract Sprouted Seeds Crackers: Organic raw sprouted pumpkin, flax, sunflower & sesame seeds, lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup, full-spectrum hemp extract & activating herbs (8 oz size 160mg - SRP $19.99).
  3. Hemp Extract Sprouted Spreads – Hazelnut+Almond: Organic raw cacao, sprouted hazelnuts & almonds, lightly sweetened with dates, pure vanilla bean, full spectrum hemp extract & activating herbs (6 oz jar 180mg - SRP $34.99).


Ron Kenan, CEO, HNINA GOURMETThe hemp plant and full-spectrum hemp extract contain hundreds of non-psychoactive cannabinoids and terpenes interacting to create an “entourage effect” far exceeding the benefits of refined CBD isolate. “Think of full-spectrum as whole grain versus refined flour, which by comparison is nutrient poor.“ says HNINA CEO, Ron Kenan.

HNINA Founder, Vanessa Morgenstern-Kenan, Founder, HNINA GOURMETVanessa (Hnina) Morgenstern-Kenan, adds “The market is literally hungry for high quality hemp extract edibles. HNINA is particularly well positioned with its clean product already appealing to the health minded consumer."

HNINA’s approach is to be beyond reproach. Compromise, corner cutting and expense sparing are not in the vocabulary. Ron notes “If you want to be best-in-class you can’t use beautiful raw organic ingredients and then sweeten with inflammatory cane or even coconut sugar. You must sprout nuts and seeds or digestion of their nutrients is blocked by enzyme inhibitors. For us it’s all or nothing.” HNINA products are rich in highly absorbable fiber, living enzymes, minerals, vitamins, proteins & antioxidants and the healthy sugar content is only 1-5g per serving. HNINA even tests its hemp extract using nutrition response muscle testing. Many hemp extracts fail this test.

HNINA’s social conscience is also clear with the use of only Fair-Trade ingredients and plastic-free compostable packaging. Even its see through cello bags are made of wood cellulose. So many products on the shelves do harm to our bodies and to our planet. A leading chocolate nut spread contains 55% sugar, 23% palm oil, 14% hazelnut & 8% cocoa & milk powder. HNINA GOURMET’s equivalent uses nothing but organic sprouted nuts, raw cacao, dates & vanilla bean. The industry is taking baby steps toward cleaning up their act but there is a lot of work to do. Until then, the purists go to HNINA. It's To Die For…Not From!
