REVIEW OF NUTIVA ORGANIC HEMP PROTEIN

Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein
"Imagine an organic food with 50% protein, 11% fat, 20% fiber (90% insoluble, 10% soluble), chlorophyll, magnesium, zinc and iron. Did you know that hempseed is one of nature's most perfect superfoods?"
There's no doubt, Hempseed is a superfood and it's sad that we don't utilize it more effectively. Hempseed is definitely a healthful choice. On the other hand, I generally find that hempseed and other green products don't taste particularly appealing. In order to more effectively utilize these superfoods, we have to find a way to make them more appealing. Within this review will discuss whether or not Nutiva has accomplished this task.
"Nutiva's delicious cold-milled Organic Hemp Protein is:
One serving provides 15 grams of raw organic protein and grams of fiber (25%+RDI). Hemp contains all 8 essential amino acids with the bonus of good-for-you essential fatty acids."
That's impressive. Also, the protein that Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein contains is 66% edestin (a bioactive protein that's easy to digest).
No GMOs, pesticides, or solvents! Ever wonder why soy burgers and soymilk are organic yet soy protein isn't? Most non-organic soy protein is processed with hexane, a petroleum solvent similar to gasoline."
Soy protein seems to have garnered an unfair amount of ridicule in recent history. I'm not fully certain of the accuracy of this statement. However, it appears to be a fear tactic to convince consumers to refuse soy and buy their product. Saying that soy protein is similar to gasoline appears to be a bit extreme and I wouldn't read too much into it. This is especially hilarious when you consider that hemp itself can be used as a fuel substitute!
Hemp (a non-drug crop) is the earth's premier renewable resource, grown easily without pesticides."
Add Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein Powder into your favorite smoothie or muffin recipe for a delicious, power-packed treat!
I wouldn't expect a delicious shake after adding Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein Powder into it, but more on that in the section entitled "taste."
For the most part, I found that this claim was truthful. However, there were a few areas where it abandoned that path. Therefore, for the claim, I award Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein a 6.5/10.
This is the area where most green foods do poorly. Unfortunately, Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein is no different. I mixed it in milk and discovered that it was difficult to consume due to its poor taste. I found that Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein had a very unpleasant green taste. Therefore, for taste, I award Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein a 1/10.
Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein had very poor solubility. I found that most of the mixture settled at the bottom of the shake. Also, what did mix in had a powdery and grainy texture to it that was unpleasant. Therefore, for solubility/texture, I award Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein a 2/10.
Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein is a superfood. As stated before, "one serving provides 15 grams of raw organic protein and grams of fiber (25%+RDI). Hemp contains all 8 essential amino acids with the bonus of good-for-you essential fatty acids." Therefore, for effectiveness, I award Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein a 9/10.
Nutiva's claim was a bit off. Also, the taste, solubility and texture were all very poor. However, Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein is a superfood and thus is very effective. Therefore, for an overall review, I award Nutiva's Organic Hemp Protein a 4.6/10.
