Hemp protein is a great substitute for other proteins because of their benefits as an all-natural plant protein. It’s used as a nutritional supplement by athletes, bodybuilders and is popular within the fitness community.
Hello Hemp's products contain hemp seed protein as a base, which is ground into fine powder. First the outer shell of the hemp seed is removed, and it then goes through a cold-pressing process and is sifted to become powder.
Hemp protein contains all of the 9 essential amino acids the body needs. In general, animal proteins are easily digestible compared to plant proteins. But research has shown 91-98% of the protein from ground hemp seed is digestible. This is due to the presence of proteins called “edestin” and “albumin”, which our bodies can break down easily. Hemp seed protein is also more soluble compared to other plant-based proteins, making it suitable for drinks, smoothies and other mixes.
The body can readily utilise these proteins to assist with repair and maintenance, reinforcing the idea that hemp is as a complete protein that can assist greatly in keeping our hair, skin, bones and muscles strong.
Hemp protein is packed with antioxidants, minerals, fiber and unsaturated fats that help maintain a healthy heart.
