Hemp Protein powder is now one of the most popular vegan varieties, made by grinding the nutritious pressed hemp seeds into a fine powder full of protein. It has a nice earthy, nutty taste and is most commonly added to smoothies to help boost protein intake in a healthy manner. Unlike other proteins, hemp protein comes with additional vitamins, minerals, fibre and healthy fats, making it more like a high protein meal.
Hemp protein is regarded as a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids that we require from food in an easy to digest form. It is a great option for not only vegans and vegetarians, but anyone looking to get a healthy boost of plant based protein in their diet.
