Steamtown Beerfest Hempzels® HiSTORY - Twisted

The company was originally called No Problem Inc, started in the mid-nineties by Ralph Amato along with participating friends Mark Tucci & Don "Uncle" Riese. Ralph was bringing in hemp textiles and having the sewn custom made into wedding dresses or whatever a customer might want. They started having a Jamaican artist do Batik artwork on hemp canvas but the creation came about over the use of hemp seed meal and incorporating it into a pretzel...

Ralph and friends were aware of hemps nutritional value.....hemp seed meal mixed into a traditional sourdough pretzel mix made by a small bakery in the snack food capital of the world & viola Hempzels...

Got milk?  Soy milk makers follow hemp's lead

Part of the health appeal of hemp milk is its naturally occurring omega fatty acids, as well as fiber. It's probably not a coincidence that soy milk makers are now offering soy milks with both.

Silk just came out with Silk Plus Fiber with five grams of fiber and Silk Plus Omega-3 DHA with the vegetarian omega 3 docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

Odwalla's new "Soy Smart" line (in chai, vanilla and chocolate) also includes omega 3 DHA.

They're going to be so fortifying some Horizon Organic dairy milk, too.

-- Bob Batz Jr.

   

Oh, we got milk all right.

In addition to whole, two-percent and one-percent fat, skim and super skim, we now also can choose to have organic milk, hormone-free milk, lactose-free milk, soy milks in a rainbow of flavors, rice milk, even almond milk.

Add to the list of nondairy alternatives, with an emphasis on alternative, "hemp milk."

By David Griffith, Intelligencer Journal Staff 
Source: Intelligencer Journal  hemp A Lancaster County businessman who sells hemp pretzels will hand out samples to Drug Enforcement Agency workers as they break for lunch today at their federal office building in Philadelphia.

Shawn Patrick House, who operates Lancaster Trading House, said Monday he will also hold a press conference at the downtown Philadelphia site to protest action by the DEA that has effectively outlawed hemp food products. The hemp products sometimes contain THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. His protest is part of a nationwide effort organized by the Hemp Industries Association in more than 80 cities.

"This is an agricultural issue. This is not a drug issue," House said. "They want to further define THC in natural products. They don't recognize what the Canadian government has set as a standard, which is 10 parts per million, and that's like an olive in a boxcar."

Hempzels History Since 2000

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

It all started with Ralph Amato, Mark Tucci & Don Riese, back in 1996, Ralph financed the business of No Problem Inc. which originally worked wtih a Jamacian artist who would hand batik hemp clothe which was customized to a customers patern, wedding dresses, shirts, slacks and original art. A brainstorm between the 3 at the introduction of hemp seed meal from Canada prompted an experiment with hand rolled Sourdough pretzels at a bakedry in heart of Snack Food Nirvana. A run of nuggets was done with a major manufacturer of these pretzels with hemp seed meal, cool concept but the grit of the seed meal didn't make them repeat customers.  Through the industry of hemp entrepreneuers gathering and sharing information, Ralph, Mark, Don & Shawn House went to California for the Hemp Industries Association conference and through the enlightenment of Richard Rose who introduced from German origin the dehulled hemp seed to the group, Ralph and group when backed & changed the formulation and had bags produced in 3 oz sizes - Hempzels(tm) pre 2000. More to be added.
