* Amazing nutritional profile. High in protein and fiber, low in calories, blends well in my smoothie.
Someone recently argued with me that flax has a better nutritional profile, but I despise flax meal; I have been replacing it with hemp in my baking (except in recipes calling for 100% flax meal, in which case I use about 50% hemp, 25% flax, and 25% almond meal, because 100% hemp has a strange texture to me). It will turn your baked goods green, but don't be scared; that just means you are getting some chlorophyll!
I don't use it so much for protein shakes because I prefer whey shakes; but if you are vegan or gluten-free, and you can mix it with some fruit or sweetener, this is a great substitute. Before I went low-carb, I used to mix my hemp into OJ with a couple tablespoons of nutritional yeast; it would keep me very full & energized for hours!
I have also used this hemp powder to make hot cereal; mixed with almond and/or peanut flour, it's very rich & delicious.
* I am on a very low carb diet and I love the Nutiva hemp protein + fiber powder. I haven't drank it yet as I put it in the low carb Sensato Cereal to make it even higher in protein and fiber!! It is delicious, and filling!! Netrition also has the best prices on both of these foods!! Thank you for these wonderful products!
* Nutiva's Hemp Protein Powder is a super food! This is an incredible source of fiber, protein, magnesium and zinc. It is formulated to be mixed into a smoothie, but I use it in my hot flax seed meal cereal and it blends in wonderfully while providing a phenomenal nutritional punch.
