Hulled Hemp Protein FAQs

Does the protein in hulled hemp hearts contain any active ingredients or drugs?

No, absolutely not. Our hulled hemp seed contains 0.00% THC. You can rest assured that the product we sell is 100% legal in North America and anywhere else that hemp food is permitted.

How is the hulled hemp seed produced?

Producing the hulled seed is a completely mechanical process. We don’t use any chemicals or anything other than a purly physical process to break apart the seed into its hull and the soft inner protein of the seed.

Will hulled hemp seed give me the same distended stomach that I get when I eat soy protein?

No, it will not. Soy is high in oligosaccharides which is a sugar. Mixing proteins and sugars cause gas and bloating. If you want to maintain lean muscle mass by consuming large amounts of protein, using hemp will keep your stomach flat, as long as you don’t mix sugars in your smoothies but unlike soy, hemp protein has quite low carbohydrate levels.

Is hulled hemp seed protein as good as any other protein?

Yes it is. In fact, because it comes from a vegetable source, and has very high digestibility, we feel it is actually better!

Is the hemp protein as good as soy or whey?

Absolutely! Actually much better. Soy has many issues including ingredients that inhibit protein absorption and other ingredients that cause flatulence. Whey protein has a higher percentage of overall protein but comes with many toxins which are absorbed by the cows. While New Zealand is one of the locations that are producing organic whey, it is 5 times the cost of the hemp protein so the hemp protein is a much better deal.
