MORE PROTEIN THAN MEAT COUPLED WITH ALL THE ESSENTIAL AMINO ACIDS
Hemp seeds are an incredible source of plant-based protein, boasting a massive 33% protein whilst containing every essential amino acid. As the building blocks of protein, amino acids have a wide-ranging positive effect on the body. Of all 20 amino acids, the body actually produces 10 while the rest must be derived from your diet. Foods containing all of these essential amino acids combined are not common and help the body digest and absorb much needed protein.
Research published in 2008 analysed the protein content of Hemp Seeds. The conclusion reached by the researchers was that the protein isolated from the hemp seeds were much more nutritional in amino acid nutrition and more easily digestible compared to Soy Protein Isolate. The researchers found that Hemp Seeds can be “utilized as a good source of protein nutrition for human consumption” (Wang et al. 2008 full journal article).
Hemp seeds rich protein content and full amino acid profile make this super food ideal for vegetarians or those on vegan diets, as it can be hard to find protein-rich foods from plant based sources.
Research published in the Euphytica journal in 2004 concluded that Hemp Seeds do not just contain “high-quality storage proteins” that are easily digested, but also contain “nutritionally significant amounts of all essential amino acids” (Callaway. 2004 – full journal article).
Additionally, it is widely accepted that most western diets are very rich in Omega-6 oils and lacking in Omega-3’s. The ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 oils should be approximately 4:1. The modern day diet typically sees this ratio at 10:1 or higher.
