Some more information about Organic Hemp Protein Powder
Hemp (hemp) a tall, coarse plant (Cannabis sativa L), that is native to Asia but naturalized or cultivated in many parts of the world. It is the source of a nutritious, edible seed (hemp seed).
Ideal Food Source
Hemp is one of the earliest known plants to be cultivated by humans, with a recorded history of over 12,000 years, and has since been grown all around the world for food. An immensely sustainable crop, this hearty plant can be utilized for many different purposes: including using its fiber for textiles and paper, its oil for vehicle fuel and human health, and its seeds for nutrition and vitality. Just like our earliest ancestors understood, hemp s nutritional benefits are highly renowned, and the hemp seed legacy continues as an ideal source of fuel for human health and energy.
The Power of Hemp
Though it may be just a small seed, hemp offers a huge nutritional content. Hemp seeds are naturally a fantastic protein source: they contain all of the essential amino acids, are highly digestible, and are one of the highest sources of complete protein of all plant-based foods. Hemp also has a very well-balanced ratio of essential fatty acids (EFAs) Omega 3, 6, and 9 which are excellent for cardiovascular health and promote a strong immune system (among many other benefits). A great source of dietary fiber, magnesium, iron, zinc, and potassium, hemp is a true superseed.
CAOH's Hemp Power is nothing short of delicious. A soft nut, our shelled hemp tastes reminiscent of a sunflower seed, with a distinctive richness. Enjoy hemp seeds by themselves, or try them sprinkled on just about anything: including granola or yogurt, salads, soups, dips, or baked into recipes. Our milled hemp protein has a mild taste, which becomes a background flavor when combined with other ingredients. Just a spoonful or two of this powder is the perfect protein boost when added to any smoothie, or mixed into flour for baking.
Hemp Protein is a balanced, "whole" protein, rich in essential fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants.
Would you like to lose fat, gain muscle and improve athletic performance?
Hemp seed powder is a rich source of bioavailable protein. Taken in conjunction with a regular exercise program, it can significantly help muscle recovery and growth. And, unlike other protein powders, it naturally contains the perfect balance of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, which have been shown to aid thermogenesis (fat-burning). Many enthusiasts say that it is so sustaining, eating Hemp Protein curbs their appetite for hours, leaving them with energy to spare!
Are you a vegan or vegetarian fed up with soy?
Hemp naturally contains all 10 essential amino acids, making it the only balanced, complete source of vegan protein. For those burnt out on soy products, Hemp Protein can provide a tasty, high-protein alternative in a very convenient form. Ideal for vegan athletes and growing vegan kids!
Do protein powders upset your stomach?
The greatest proportion of protein in Hemp Seed Protein powder is called Edestin, the type most easily used by the human body. Edestin comprises 65% of the protein in hemp seeds, offering benefits for immunity and communication between cells. Edestin also aids digestion and is considered the backbone of our cells' DNA. The remainder of hemp's protein occurs in the form of albumin, which ranks close to Edestin in terms of bio-availability and quick conversion to amino acids. The combination of these two types of protein in one superfood seed make Hemp Protein the closest match for our human protein needs.
Compare this to soy and whey protein powders, which may cause digestive disturbances leading to bloating and flatulence. Soy naturally contains substances that inhibit the enzyme Trypsin, interfering with digestion, and even very low-lactose varieties of whey can still contain enough lactose to upset sensitive stomachs. Neither soy nor whey contains Edestin protein.
Are you interested in whole, raw, live foods?
More and more people are realizing the benefits of eating food that is "live," raw, or unheated, so that its life-giving enzymes are still active.

This makes it easier for the body to recognize as "real food," and so makes it easier to assimilate. It also contains chlorophyll, a natural detoxifier!
