Hemp protein contains all 20 common amino acids, including the 9 essential and 2 semi-essential amino acids (EAAs) our bodies cannot produce. Proteins are considered complete when they contain all 9 essential amino acids in a sufficient quantity and ratio to meet the body’s protein requirements. This makes hemp seeds perfect for vegans, vegetarians or anyone who is looking to reduce the meat content of their diet. Hemp seed protein can supply all of the protein requirements without the bad fats in meat and without the stomach upset from soy.
With a complete collection of amino acids, with ultimately the best digestibility of any vegetable protein, with the added bonus of essential fatty acids, lacking the items found in soy that cause gas, hemp is truly the perfect vegetable source for a high protein food.
If you are looking for a high protein food for a high protein diet (but you would rather not eat meat or are not interested in bulking up on whey or soy), hemp as a high protein food is perfect for you. With just a couple of handfuls equaling a full day’s worth of protein, it is the ultimate high protein food.
