Today we take a look at hemp protein powder and it’s huge rise in popularity over recent years, hemp protein has become a huge favourite amongst vegan community in the united kingdom who highly recommend it for athletes who follow a vegan diet because of its high nutritional values, many people believe hemp protein powder is the best protein powder available on the market, there are many online stores that sell it one we would recommend is myprotein.  Hemp protein powder is typically added to breakfast shakes and smoothies, with it having a earthy nutty taste it is better tasting when blended in almond milk and water with rolled oats and fruits such as bananas and strawberries, peanut butter can also be added to the mix for more protein.

 

Hemp protein benefits: 

Hemp protein powder is a very high quality protein containing all nine amino acids, healthy fats minerals and fibre, and doesn’t contain any bad fats such cholesterol or saturated fats, it is also packed with vitamins including vitamin a, vitamin c, and vitamin e, and minerals including calcium,iron, zinc and potassium. Unlike 90% of the protein powders available on the market which are made from ‘whey’, whey protein is the liquid part that separates during cheese production, the whey is then pasteurised with the protein being concentrated and isolated.

How is hemp protein made?

The process starts with hemp seeds, they are separated from the plant, washed and de-shelled removing the outer layer, before being placed in a cold press extraction machine, this method gives a purer oil and also a better flavour, aswell as keeping a lot of healthy compounds that are lost when hot pressing.

The remaining crushed seeds are left to dry then grinded up into a dark green powder for sale.

Summary:

Hemp protein is undoubtedly one of the best sources of protein in the world with healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, we would highly recommend it to anyone following a vegan or vegetarian diet, or athlete’s who need high quality protein, without the stomach problems alot of people experience from using whey protein.
