Product Description

About the Brand

In 2001, Charles Holmes and his father, Ken, who was harvesting wild rice with a group of Native Americans near Flin Flon, Manitoba, obtained a grant from the University of Saskatchewan Food Science Center to study improvements to the de-hulling processes for wild rice. The Center's scientists encouraged Charles and Ken to also consider hemp as a possible high protein food source. At the time, no other company was using hemp seed protein for consumer products. It was considered a waste product and was used only as animal feed.

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.
Tad_87
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.
PotatoFamine
Also makes a great smoothie with a cup of non-fat milk, 1T peanut butter, 1 frozen banana and a couple of ice cubes.

I recently switched to protein supplements in an attempt to build lean muscle. Whey protein worked well but left me feeling bloated. I stumbled across this product while looking for an alternative, and it is fantastic! No bloating, no bog down, leaves me feeling fantastic. The taste leaves something to be desired, but what can you expect? It's raw, organic, and has no additives whatsoever, so protein is all you get. Mix it with a bit of almond milk, almond butter, and a banana, and it's the best thing ever!

This powder tastes very earthy (think vegetable fibers and peat) frankly. If you're consuming this, you're probably not particularly interested in drinking a milkshake (If you are, go to the Mickey Dees and grab a big ol' glass of milk and assorted toxins). This is not a product that is meant to "taste like candy", so if you are used to those designer whey powders that are full of sucralose and/or other artificial toxins and ridiculous flavors like "Super Duper Berry Cookie Crunch", then you will find this product to be very disappointing.

This product has very low solubility in water or milk, but mixes better with any freshly squeezed (non-factory-processed juices). Fresh squeezed juice will generally have pith, fiber, etc. left in it that adds to its viscosity and greatly lowers the rate of dissolution (how long it takes for the hemp to become 'unmixed' and sink to the bottom of the glass). Essentially, the thicker the solvent, the less that the hemp will settle. Additionally, having the juice at room temperature will further increase the solubility.

I might also suggest a shaker/bottle combination of some type, as opposed to an open glass stirred with a spoon. I use a BlenderBottle 28-Ounce with BlenderBall, Blue myself.

If you want a cheaper way to mix up milled hemp, please note that the above rules are applicable to canned tomato juice, since it is viscous, and stores well at room temperature (and is dirt cheap). Most of the time I take my hemp protein with a can of no-salt-added tomato juice (it is delicious and so easy to make for a low-carbohydrate, high-protein breakfast.

Just a note to those like me who are looking for a high protein concentration per serving: There is a customer image on this page from 2006 that shows 14g protein per 2 tbsp. Thus I ordered it. I received it today, and found the image to be outdated. The product I received has 13g protein per 4 tbsp. I uploaded up-to-date images to show this.

This definitely has to be mixed with something to make it tolerable, and I think it may take a few tries to get used to it. I mix it with protein shakes; the flavors of the protein shakes fortunately dominate vs. the taste of the hemp powder. It's a little weird drinking a concoction that looks green but tastes like banana, but the health benefits are worth it to me. It is gritty however. At first I tried it plain and had to basically choke it down, but I guess it's grown on me. Bottom line: if you're dedicated to finding a good vegan source of protein and other nutrition, it's worth a try to experiment with it by adding it to smoothies and other recipes.

Why does Amazon allow companies to post information about products that are false. The Manufacturer states 2 tablespoons for 14 grams of protein. However, the container states you need to use 4 tablespoons for the same about of protein. basically you get half the protein or use twice as much as advertised. THis is just not right.

I like it in banana-yogurt based smoothies. Also makes a great smoothie with a cup of non-fat milk, 1T peanut butter, 1 frozen banana and a couple of ice cubes.

I tried it mixed with a cranberry emergen-c pack and water. I don't recommend that unless you just need nutrition and don't care how it tastes. If I were going to go non-dairy, I'd probably go with vegetable juices, possibly apple cider. The hemp seed powder has a slightly nutty flavor that goes well with other nutty flavors, or pretty much disappears with a little vanilla.

Bought this today @ the Vitamin Shoppe. I needed a protein suppliment that is Vegan friendly. Just by smelling it I knew if I didn't jazz it up when mixing that it would probably not taste so great. I threw 4 tbsp into a spinach, strawberry, blackberry, apple smoothie and it .. was.. fantastic. I've had worse, more gritter powders (Ulitmate Meal mix). I enjoyed this very much and so did my 3 year niece who is a picky eater. If you add fruit you don't taste the hemp at all. My favorite part .. it's less than $15.00 per bottle & really that is a bargan compared to the other vegan/plant based powders on the market.

I had originally stumbled upon Living Harvest Protein Powder while looking for a substitute for an amazing 21 day cleanse/shake a nutritionist in SF had given me. Because the cleanse was so expensive to keep up, I asked for another high protein alternative that was less $$. She had told me to use Whey Powder so I bought it but was unimpressed.

I wanted to have a healthy morning shake so looked a bit further and found the Hemp Protein powder at the Vitamin Shop and thought I'd give it a go. It is WONDERFUL! I drink this every morning with Green Super Food, Hemp Milk, Blueberries & honey. It has really changed my life. I have a ton of energy and don't feel hungry until more than an hour after my usual breakfast.
