The ‘essential’ hemp protein powder.
Manitoba Harvest HempPro 50® could be called the ‘essential’ protein powder. It contains protein (all the essential amino acids), fibre (essential for digestive health) and omegas (essential fatty acids) in one nutritious package.
HempPro 50 contains 15 grams of plant-based protein, 7 grams of fibre and 2.6 grams of omegas per 30 gram serving. Great for vegan diets, HempPro 50 is a raw whole food made with just one ingredient – hemp. The complete plant based protein in HempPro 50 is easy to digest with none of the bloating often associated with whey or soy proteins. Simply blend with your favorite smoothie ingredients, for a great tasting and healthy drink.
Blend into smoothies or juices. Add to hot cereal or baking.
Recommended Serving Size: 4 Tablespoons (30g).
Storage: Refrigerate after opening.
Ingredients: Raw cold-milled hemp protein powder (50% protein by weight).
I'm not really a smoothie/protein shake person. I don't really enjoy this product. I put some of this in my blueberry smoothie after some workouts but find it very gritty tasting overall... I want to like it more than I actually do.
This is the first time I've bought Hemp protein powder. I had no idea it was green. I blended my first shake with V-8 splash and frozen raspberries. It still tasted like a blended salad, with a salad after-taste. Today, I tried it with oatmeal, cinnamon and honey, it was much better and will be my #1 choice for consumption. I hope that it will become an acquired taste. I will try a savory blend to see how that is... I'll follow up to see how it was.
I am surprised at the previous two reviews on this product. This is an excellent source of protein and many other vital nutrients. I have no issues with the taste. I make a dairy free chocolate banana type smoothie in the mornings and it tastes great. I have almost finished my first container of the protein and have noticed the benefits already. I have a lot of energy in the morning, stay full until lunch and had reduced PMS.
Bought this product to replace the much more expensive Hemp Protein from Onnit. Although Gritty I have pretty much masterd the receipe and it works and tatstes great. - Water/Ice/Almond Milk/Cocnut Oil/Penut or Almond Butter/Cocoa/Stevia/1-Banana/Vanilla/Hemp Hearts
