Jarrow Formulas Organic Hemp Protein is an excellent source of protein, containing more of the nine essential amino acids than soy or egg proteins, in the form of easily digestible globular proteins. Unlike other common protein sources, hemp is also rich in essential fatty acids (close to 3 grams per serving) in the recommended 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3 ratio.
Hemp's superior 66% edistin and 33% albumin protein structure is the highest in the plant kingdom, making it the golden standard of plant protein.
Hemp protein is a real soy alternative.
Organic Hemp Protein is manufactured using a proprietary cold-processing method to maintain the integrity of the proteins and phytonutrients. Refrigerate after opening.
Suitable for vegetarians/vegans.

Hemp is the common name for plants of the Cannabis family cultivated for industrial (non-drug) use. It is grown everywhere except in the US, and its popularity is growing steadily. Industrial hemp has many uses in paper, textile, biodegradable plastics, biofuel and health food sectors. Hemp grows quickly, does not require pesticides, replenishes soil with nutrients and nitrogen, controls topsoil erosion, and makes abundant oxygen.
Organic Hemp Seed is a Superfood rich in protein, essential fatty acids (EFAs), minerals and phytonutrients. No other food provides complete protein in such an easily digestible form (globular proteins, albumin and edestin). Hemp is a perfect balance (3:1) of Omega 3 & 6 believed to be ideal for promoting wellbeing. These EFAs are required for metabolic, brain, skin, digestive, cardiovascular, hormonal, and immune health, and the balance between omega-3 and omega-6 strongly affects function. Unlike fl ax or soy, hemp contains omega-3 stearidonic acid (SDA), and omega-6 gamma- linoleic acid (GLA), which help to combat the effects of stress, aging and toxins. Studies have shown that GLA improves mental health and is strongly anti-inflammatory. Hemp seeds also contain trace minerals, including phosphorus, magnesium, zinc and iron, and some vitamins. The combination of ingredients helps build strong bodies and promotes immune health.
While many proteins are potential allergens (e.g., soy, dairy, or peanuts), hemp seed is not. Hemp seeds also contain fewer gasproducing substances than peas or beans. Allergies to soy are also on the rise, possibly from genetically engineered crops or use of chemicals, whereas hemp seed does not cause sensitivity. Soy also contains anti-nutritional factors not found in hemp seeds. Furthermore, hemp seed is an alkaline food, while soy is highly acidic. Hemp is also gluten free.
The seeds can be easily incorporated into most diets. They can be eaten raw, ground into a meal, sprouted, made into hemp milk, prepared as tea, and used in baking. Hemp meal can be added to various foods to increase their nutritive content
Not everyone needs to supplement the diet with extra protein. However, those who do— including athletes, vegetarians/vegans, the elderly, and health fitness buffs—should consider a protein source of the highest quality. Jarrow Formulas Organic Hemp Protein is a milled product from non-GMO Hemp seed that is considered the most complete edible and usable protein in the vegetable kingdom.
It has more essential amino acids than soy or egg protein, in the form of easily digestible globular proteins. Hemp protein is high in arginine, an amino acid involved in growth hormone production and cardiovascular support. It also contains levels of branched chain amino acids to help preserve muscle and improve insulin sensitivity. Each serving provides 30% of the daily requirement for protein, along with a third of the iron and nearly one-quarter of the fiber daily value. It is also rich source of balanced EFAs. Indeed, 0.7g of omega-3 is an excellent amount per serving
