Made from only one ingredient-hemp seeds, hemp protein powder is a complete plant-based protein. It is a great alternative for people who are lactose-intolerant, vegan or allergic to other proteins. It contains 20 amino acids including all the essential nine amino acids that our body cannot synthesise itself. As it is completely obtained from plant source, as opposed to whey protein which is animal based, it is easily digestible and not heavy on the stomach. It helps in the healthy growth and maintenance of muscle mass. The nutty taste of hemp protein enhances your ordinary shakes, brownies, smoothies, pancakes, waffles, and cupcakes to protein-rich treats.
