For a while now I have been consuming hemp protein powder. Hemp protein appears to have a lot going for it, even when compared to staples such as whey. A summary of its nutritonal benefits are here:
I was interested to find that Paul of MoreLife consumes hemp products: http://morelife.org/...ietregmore.html
Hemp is probably an ideal veg__ source of protein as it contains a decent amount of all the essential amino acids and dos not have soy's drawbacks. I personally consume very little soy these days. Although its ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 is lower than flax, it does contain some GLA. Its balance of omega 3 to 6 is apparently ideal, so if your diet is otherwise perfect hemp may be a good choice. Those of you who immediately jump to the conclusion that hemp is too high in polyunsaturated fats should note that hemp contains antioxidants in the form of the E complex and chlorophyll. Chlorophyll specifically has been recommended for its anti-mutagenic properties. Research into the ratio of E vitamers is being conducted by the Canadian hemp organizations (personal correspondence w/ manufacturers) and should hopefully be available soon.
Thankfully, the DEA's draconian attempts to control hemp products have failed and those of you in the US are now free to ingest this great food product.
