Ken and Charles learned that the hemp seed's balanced composition of essential fatty acids, essential amino acids, and high protein gave them the ideal foundation food source they were seeking. The problem was, how to mill it. Hemp seeds were difficult to process without damaging their sensitive essential fatty acids. "We knew the protein could be made into a viable food product, we just had to figure out how," says Ken. Working with a fellow millwright from Saskatchewan, Canada, he dedicated the next 18 months to engineering a specialized, proprietary milling machine. Their new vacuum friction mill processed the hemp seed at the low temperatures necessary to produce a whole, live food with enzymes and protein intact.
In 2002, Ken and Charles established Living Harvest Conscious Nutrition, Inc., with the goal of creating hemp seed products that maintain the seed's essential nutrients. With the application of their new technology, Living Harvest yielded the world's first organic, live, protein powder made from 100% Certified Organic Hemp Seed. The result was a protein powder with an unusually high protein concentration, over 46%. This proprietary process is still considered unique in the industry.
Today, Living Harvest employs technologies such as Ken's proprietary vacuum friction mill, vacuum food dryers, and cold mechanical presses in the creation of a full line of organic hemp food products. They work in close partnership with the most respected organic farmers and farmer coops across Canada. Living Harvest was also the only company in the industry to have an exclusively organic line of products from day one. They continue to be committed to the Holmes family founding mission--to be purveyors of the finest quality, highest-nutritive, best-tasting organic hemp seed foods available.

It was a great way to get some nutrients and protein before a workout.
It doesn't taste bad, in fact it doesn't really taste like anything when I mix into a shake, but it's almost like sand and never really dissolves at all.
Also makes a great smoothie with a cup of non-fat milk, 1T peanut butter, 1 frozen banana and a couple of ice cubes.
Flavor is not too good on its own - much better mixed with fruit.Published 7 months ago by Kris Daveluy
Taste is not this products strong suit. If you want to add some different nutrients into you work out regimen this is worth adding to your smoothie.Published 8 months ago by Kenneth
It may be a little gritty. For me the best way to mix this green powder is with canned pears or pineapple and water, that's all (use an immersion/stick blender) . Read morePublished 8 months ago by Friend of the Goddess
This came quickly and in good condition. However, it tastes yucky and it leaves a slight grit to the powder. I tried mixing many things with this and it was hard to swallow. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Amazon Customer
I wouldn't buy again, but those who like hemp over the dairy proteins might already know this. So if you are looking to switch for dietary reason than be prepared for the taste and... Read morePublished 12 months ago by Brian & Kim French
I add a tablespoon to breads and muffins. It's loaded with iron. You do have to keep it in the fridge, though.Published 13 months ago by tom
This would taste good in a smoothie. It is a bit grainy tasting when consumed with water or vegetable juice.Published 13 months ago by rickyd
