Hemp Protein Powder Review
Hemp protein powder is one of the very best green powder proteins on the market. A person needs to be careful when they buy it however, because there are a lot of examples of hemp protein powder that aren’t all that they’re cracked up to be. For example, about a year ago I purchased a can of hemp protein powder without really reading the ingredients until I got home, only to find out that for every serving, there were 11 grams of fiber to 9 grams of protein. The powder was more than 50% fiber. How do you call a powder a protein powder if it’s mostly comprised of fiber and not protein? That’s why we’ve selected Hemp Pro 70 to review.
Hemp Pro 70 Main Ingredients
- 70% Protein per serving
- 800mg Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids
I’m very impressed with the high Omega 3 EFA content. That’s a very high amount, especially inside of a protein powder. The reason why this product only got 3 out of 5 stars in terms of completeness is because as far as green powders go, hemp protein doesn’t have the full range of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients offered by many of the leading green powders out there. However, if you’re wanting to take hemp protein mostly for the protein value, and don’t really care about getting a bunch of other vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, then Hemp Pro 70 is an awesome way to go. It has the highest protein concentration of any hemp protein we’re aware of on the market, and a very high Omega 3 EFA content as well.
As far as bio-availability goes, hemp protein in general has a lot of indigestible plant matter in it. And while fiber intake is a great thing, there are cheaper ways of getting it in your diet. Bio-availability is another reason why we chose Hemp Pro 70 as our featured hemp protein, because it doesn’t have nearly the same fiber content that a lot of other hemp protein powders have. The cost is a bit more than other hemp proteins, but from our perspective, you get what you pay for. If you want to pay less for a hemp protein comprised mostly of fiber, that’s your prerogative. Here’s what the users are saying:
Hemp is head and shoulders above all other protein sources, and I have tried them all! This is a great protein concentrate… I drink a shake with it every morning… mixes easily… taste is fairly bland, leaning toward nutty. More expensive than others, but a better source of protein and higher concentration. I did hours of research before choosing this product, and I definitely recommend it!
