How is hemp protein powder made?

Hemp protein powder is typically made from the seeds of the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa). The process of making hemp protein powder involves the following steps:

  1. Harvesting: The hemp seeds are harvested from the hemp plants and then cleaned to remove any debris.
  2. Dehulling: The seeds are then dehulled to remove the outer shell, revealing the inner hemp seed.
  3. Grinding: The dehulled seeds are then ground into a fine powder, which is then called hemp meal.
  4. Cold-pressing: The hemp meal is then cold-pressed to remove the oil. The oil is commonly used for various purposes, while the remaining hemp meal is used to make hemp protein powder.
  5. Sifting: The hemp meal is then sifted to remove any remaining fibers and to produce a fine powder.
  6. Packaging: Finally, the hemp protein powder is packaged and sold.

The resulting hemp protein powder is a complete protein, containing all the essential amino acids. It is also high in fiber, iron, and essential fatty acids. Additionally, hemp protein powder is easy to digest, making it a popular supplement for athletes and individuals with digestive issues.
