Hemp contains high-quality plant protein with branched-chain amino acids that are vital for good health. It also has all nine essential amino acids, with the bonus of good-for-you essential fatty acids (2g per serving). Nutiva hemp protein powders contain 66% edestin (a bioactive globulin protein that's easy to digest) -- more than any other plant! These hemp protein powders have the added distinction of being gently cold-processed, without the use of hexane, a harsh chemical solvent used to process non-organic soy protein powders. They are also vegan and come in a non-BPA container.
