Hemp seeds provide us with high-quality plant protein; they’re one of nature’s best sources of strength – a high-fibre, protein-rich wholefood that can be used to supplement your dietary protein requirements or to incorporate more sustainable protein sources in your diet.
Hemp is considered a superior protein due to the fact it is complete. Pure Hemp Hearts include the nine essential amino acids that your body is unable to produce on its own and so we must obtain these from our diet. Amino acids are the building blocks for all protein in our bodies, and since hemp seeds have above-average digestibility, you’ll get the maximum absorption of your protein intake.
So if you’re already gearing up to toss this nutrient-dense whole food into your salad or post-workout smoothie, absolutely go for it – you can expect a buttery texture and nutty taste that tastes great in practically everything. Hemp seeds have a flavour profile similar to pine nuts.
