Hemp seed protein contains the 18 key amino acids including 10 essential amino acids (EAAs) our bodies cannot produce. Proteins are considered complete when they contain the essential amino acids in a sufficient quantity and ratio to meet the body's needs. Hemp seeds contain an adequate supply of these high quality proteins (EAAs) for a well balanced diet.
Hemp seed protein is free of tryspin-inhibitors that block protein absorption, and free of oligosaccharides that are found in soy and cause stomach upset and gas.
Only found in hemp seeds, approximately 65% of the protein in hemp seeds is made up of the globulin protein, Edestin. Edestin aids digestion, is relatively phosphorus-free and is considered to be the backbone of our cells' DNA. The other one third of hemp seed protein is Albumin, another high quality globulin protein similar to that found in egg whites.
