Particularities

Hemp protein is a refined by-product of the hemp oil extraction process. The oil is pressed from the seeds ofthe hemp plant, which grows in parts of Europe and China. The oil cake generated during this process is groundfine and distributed as hemp protein. It is a gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan substitute for regular, whiteflours.

Thanks to its extraordinarily balanced amino acid profile, hemp protein provides all essential amino acids thatcannot be produced by the body and have to consumed as a dietary supplement instead.

What is special about hemp protein is its similarity to human protein, which makes it easily convertible by thebody.
