Hemp Protein Powder | Organic - 33 Lbs
- Our hemp is grown throughout Lithuania, where it thrives in moist environments with heavy rainfall. Hemp is a highly versatile plant that has many uses while being incredibly sustainable. It helps clean air, by removing carbon dioxide, restores soil with nutrients, doesn’t require pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers and requires about 50% less water than cotton. The seeds are high in protein and in powder form offer a full spectrum of amino acids when taken with another plant-based protein powder such as brown rice or pea protein.
- Our hemp thrives in moist environments with heavy rainfall. The plant usually grows between 2-4 meters, the taller, stalky plants are used for fibers, and the shorter plants with more branches are used for seed cultivation. The seeds are picked and then sent to remove the crispy outer shell, revealing the light, nutty-tasting seed inside.
- After the hemp seeds have been harvested, they are dried, and expeller pressed. The seed cake leftover after pressing is milled and screened, separating the fiber and concentrating the protein. This process is repeated a few more times with a smaller screen each time, removing fiber with each sifting and resulting in an extra-fine, nutritious protein powder.
- Use hemp protein powder in smoothies, shakes, and baked goods for a slightly nutty, healthy dose of protein, fiber, potassium, and iron
