The RDA recommends that we take in 0.8 grams of protein for every kilogram that we weigh (or about 0.36 grams of protein per pound that we weigh)
Hemp protein is the only plant protein which has a similar nutritional profile to milk, meat and eggs, as it contains 20 amino acids including all 10 essential amino acids.
It is also very easy to digest unlike some other plant proteins such as Soya, which can sometimes cause bloating. Hemp Protein also, unlike Soya, does not contain Phytic Acid, which can block the absorption of other nutrients.
The Essential Fatty Acid Omega 3 is an important nutrient which can be diffcult to obtain in a Vegan or Vegetarian diet. Unlike most other plant proteins, HEMP Protein Powder is naturally rich in Essential Fatty Acids such as Omega 3. It contains SDA, a potent form of Omega 3 that is usually only found in fish oil. SDA is easily absorbed by the body and converted into the longer chain fatty acids DHA and EPA. For more information about Vegan & Vegetarian Omega 3 please visit VeggieOmega3.co.uk

Hemp is one of the most sustainable plants on earth as it is excellent at carbon sequestration. Our field of hemp in the UK locks up to four times as much carbon as an equivalent sized field of trees. Hemp also has incredible insulation capabilities. The fibre from our hemp goes towards producing sustainable building materials which built 250 social houses in Britain in 2010.
