Protein that's gentle on the gut
June 29, 2020 Report
I've loved Manitoba Harvest hemp products for years, so I was excited to see they made a protein powder. I love that this powder has only one ingredient - hemp protein. No added colours, flavours, sugars or fillers. Plus it's non-GMO.
Hemp is a powerhouse superfood. It not only has a high protein content, but it's a complete protein, meaning it contains all the essential amino acids our body needs. A unique find for plant based proteins. Hemp protein is also easily digested and absorbed, making this a great choice.
Hemp Yeah! is also high in fibre and essential fatty acids. The fibre in Hemp Yeah! is largely insoluble fiber, which means not only will this protein not cause constipation, but it can actually help with bowel movements, making them more frequent and easier to pass.
I added a full serving of Hemp Yeah! to 1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk, 1 small banana, 1.5 cups strawberries and a few ice cubes and it was a delicious and healthy breakfast smoothie. Even my kids love using this protein in their smoothies. It adds a slight nutty flavour which just works perfectly.
