Life Story of the Hemp Protein
Hemp protein is the protein component of hemp seeds. Although it is derived from the plant Cannabis Sativa, it does not contain any THC (the intoxicating ingredient in marijuana).The hemp 33% powder we use is made with crushed raw hemp seed, nothing else.
Hemp is a super plant, with many uses outside of food (like fabrics, body lotion, paper, etc.), but as a food it is one of the few plants we can call a complete protein. This means it contains all 9 essential amino acids that humans must get from food. Low in carbs, high in omegas, hemp has double the protein of chia and flax. It also has a high rate of digestibility of 91-98%, so the body can more efficiently use the protein for important bodily functions.
