Day 8 of 31 Hemp Products: Protein Powder


HEMP PRODUCT: Protein Powder

SUB MARKETS: Nutrition, Dietary Supplement, Food

Day eight of our 31 Days of Hemp campaign highlights a nutritional product to benefit your daily diet*: hemp protein powder. Vegetarians, vegans, and meat-eaters can all add a complete plant-based protein which is also rich in fiber (a one-ounce serving has ~14 grams of protein and ~4 grams of fiber). When the entire seed is used to make the protein powder, one gains many of the same perks of hemp seed oil, including 20 essential amino acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids.

Some of the characteristics of hemp protein:

  • Contains Iron, Magnesium, & Zinc
  • Branched chain amino acids good for muscle repair
  • Flour replacement, can bake with it
  • Stimulates the immune system*
  • Highly / easily digestible
  • Anti-fatigue properties
  • Metabolism booster
  • Low carbohydrate
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Rich nutty flavor
  • Affordable
* Note, due to high amino acid content, especially arginine, hemp seed products can stimulate T-Cells and antibodies (i.e. the immune system). Individuals suffering from autoimmune conditions should take caution and consult a medical professional before adding hemp supplements to your diet.
