Hemp protein powder, or hemp meal, as it is sometimes referred to, is usually made from the by-product of the hemp seed pressing process into hemp oil. After the oil is squeezed out of the seeds, the remaining product, known as the hemp cookie, contains over 25% protein and is an excellent source of dietary fiber.
It also contains up to 35% of the seed oil left over from pressing, providing the health benefits of omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. The hemp dough is then stone milled into coarse flour or flour. Alternatively, it can be further processed to produce a powdered protein isolate.
Hemp seeds are a valuable product
Hemp seeds are “little gems” containing essential fatty acids in an almost perfect balance – three to one. For the human body, this is an almost perfect proportion. They are also a rich source of eight essential amino acids for a healthy lifestyle. The body cannot produce the same acids on its own.
Branched Chain Amino Acids help create a fast-acting metabolism that can increase and maintain muscle mass, and aid in muscle repair after strenuous work. For this reason, hemp protein is ideal for active people who want to work on building and maintaining muscle mass before or after training.
Hemp protein is the only plant-based protein that provides edystin and albumin. These proteins produce antibodies to improve the immune system and allow the other nutrients in the hemp protein powder to be absorbed faster.
Hemp Protein contains two fats that our body needs; Omega-3 and Omega-6 – in the perfect proportion for optimal human health.
Hemp protein powder is easy to digest, gluten-free, high in fiber and contains the minerals you need: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, boron, iron, zinc, manganese, sulfur and chlorophyll, and more.
So whether you choose hemp protein powder, hemp flour, hemp flour or even hemp cake, you can be sure to use one of nature’s best plant proteins.
