Hemp Replaces Common Food Allergens
By Meghan Atkinson CN
Approximately 11 million Americans live with food allergies. Some of the most common food allergens include milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and wheat (gluten). Symptoms of a food allergy can range from a tingling sensation in the mouth, swelling of the tongue and the throat, difficulty breathing, hives, vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, drop in blood pressure, and loss of consciousness to death in extreme cases.
Fortunately, Manitoba Harvest's hemp products offer comprehensive healthy and tasty alternatives to these common food allergens. In addition, Manitoba Harvest owns and operates its facility where none of the common allergens enter the building, so it poses no chance for contamination from the common food allergens.
Blissful Dairy Alternative:
Manitoba Harvest's Hemp Bliss Organic Hemp Beverage is a wonderful alternative to dairy, as it is free of dairy, nuts, soy, gluten, and cholesterol. And unlike milk, Hemp Bliss provides 1200mg per serving of omega 3 fatty acids. It also had 5 grams of complete protein per serving. It can be used in shakes, smoothies, or sipped by itself - it's that good.
A Different Delicious Butter:
Instead of peanut butter or other nut butters that come from tree nuts, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Seed Butter is made of shelled hemp seeds. This delicious green spread offers more complete protein by weight than beef, chicken, or fish. It also contains an extremely rich source of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, including GLA. It can be used any way you would use other nut butters and substituted in any nut butter recipe.
Hemp Protein Powder Power:
Most protein powders on the market are made of whey, soy, or egg protein. Each can be extremely highly processed which can damage or de-nature proteins, as well as and pose allergy concerns. Manitoba Harvest Hemp Protein Powder and Protein & Fiber Powder are raw, cold-milled whole food protein powders that are rich in complete protein, omega 3 and 6, and a wonderful source of fiber. They can be used in shakes, smoothies, yogurt, and more.
