Product summary:

500g powder (original flavour)

HempNourish protein powder (Original Flavour) provides complete, balanced and natural protein from hemp (46.4g per 100g) with all of the essential amino acids. It is also high in fibre (16.3g per 100g) and low in saturated fat (1.1g per 100g).

This plant protein powder is a source of vitamins, minerals, omega oils (including essential fatty acids), dietary fibre and phytonutrients from both the hemp and the 15 other foods and herbs included in the blend, namely: acai berry, Acerola cherry, alfalfa, beetroot, blackcurrant, celery seed, chlorella, cinnamon, dandelion leaf, fenugreek, green tea, Montmorency cherry, parsley piert, spinach and spirulina.

It beats single-ingredient protein powders hands-down! It is easily digestible and does not cause bloating or flatulence, which many people experience with dairy-based protein powders – an ideal alternative to whey and soya.

Unlike many other hemp protein powders on the market, HempNourish (Original Flavour) contains no hexane or other toxic chemicals, which are often used during the hemp protein extraction process. Our hemp protein is extracted using only water, pressure and then flocculation.

More about the ingredients…

Hemp protein
The main ingredient in this high quality protein powder is hemp – a complete, natural and balanced source of protein. Hemp contains essential fatty acids (such as Omega 3 and Omega 6 oils), all of the essential amino acids and other nutrients. There aren’t many other single plant sources that provide complete protein nutrition in such an easily digestible form. As a plant-based source of protein, it is lean, low in saturated fat and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It is also naturally dairy-free and gluten-free.

Protein contributes to a growth in muscle mass, the maintenance of muscle mass and the maintenance of normal bones. Click here and here for EFSA scientific opinions.

Acai berries
The acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee) berry is a small, dark purple palm fruit, indigenous to the Amazon rainforest. For hundreds of years, these berries have formed a staple part of the diet of native tribes. As a richly coloured fruit, acai berries naturally contain the purple pigments known as anthocyanins.

Acerola cherries
These cherries contain naturally high levels of vitamin C (30 times the amount found in oranges of the same weight), as well as approximately 150 other nutritive constituents, including bioflavonoids, proteins, mineral salts, iron, calcium and phosphorus.

Alfalfa
Alfalfa is a source of chlorophyll, vitamins (such as pro-vitamin A (B-carotene, vitamins B6, C, D, E, K and P), minerals (such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc), dietary fibre and other nutrients (such as isoflavones, sterols, other plant phytoestrogens and derivatives of coumarin). It also contains all of the essential amino acids and 8 enzymes.

Beetroot
Beetroot is the taproot portion of the beet plant. It is one of several of the cultivated varieties of Beta vulgaris grown for their edible taproots and their leaves (called beet greens). It is a source of dietary fibre, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron and vitamin C. The deep red colour of beetroot results from the presence of a type of betalain pigment (betacyanins). Beetroot is also a source of betaine and inorganic nitrates.

Blackcurrant
Blackcurrants are a source of vitamin C (containing more than 3 times the amount found in oranges of the same weight), as well as bioflavonoids and anthocyanins – pigments which give blackcurrants their distinctive dark purple colour.

Celery seed
Celery seeds are very similar to cumin seeds in appearance – they are dark brown in colour and have an elongated shape with vertical ridges. They also have a strongly aromatic flavour. They are a source of: phytosterols, choline, folate, niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, vitamin A (including beta carotene), vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin E, fibre, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, sodium and zinc.

Chlorella
Chlorella is a single-cell green algae, which is cultivated in large man-made freshwater ponds under artificially-controlled conditions. It contains protein (60%), including all of the essential amino acids, as well as vitamins B1, C, E and K and the carotenoids beta carotene and lutein.

Cinnamon
The cinnamon plant is a small, evergreen tree belonging to the family of Lauraceae within the genus, Cinnamomum. This spice is native to Sri Lanka, but is also now grown in many other countries such as Indonesia, Myanmar, Bangladesh, India and China. It contains flavonoids (such as carotenes, zea-xanthin, lutein and cryptoxanthin) and essential oils such as eugenol (a phenylpropanoids class of chemical compound that is responsible for its pleasant, sweet aromatic fragrance), ethyl cinnamate, linalool, cinnamaldehyde, beta-caryophyllene and methyl chavicol. It also contains vitamins and minerals like potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, zinc, magnesium, vitamin A, niacin, pantothenic acid and pyridoxine.

Dandelion leaf
Dandelion greens are a source of folate, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, dietary fibre, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), vitamin K, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B6, calcium, iron, potassium and manganese.

Fenugreek
Fenugreek seeds contain minerals (such as iron, potassium, calcium, selenium, copper, zinc, manganese and magnesium), vitamins (such as thiamin, folic acid, riboflavin, pyridoxine (vitamin B6), niacin, and vitamins A and C), as well as polysaccharides (saponins, hemicellulose, mucilage, tannin, and pectin).

Green tea
Green tea contains catechin polyphenols, such as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

Montmorency cherries
Montmorency cherries  are a type of red, sour cherry – Prunus cerasus. They are a source of dietary fibre, copper, manganese, vitamin A and vitamin C. They also contain naturally-occurring phytochemicals (compounds found in plants), including anthocyanins – which give the cherries their distinctive red colour – and melatonin. Other plant phenols present in Montmorency cherries include: chlorogenic acid, ellagic acid, gallic acid and quercetin.

Parsley piert
Parsley piert is a tiny plant that can be easily overlooked in its wild habitat, as it grows only to around 4 inches high. It is no relation to true parsley, but its leaves look similar. It is a close relation to Lady’s Mantle, hence the name Lady’s Field Mantle, and is a member of the Rosaceae or rose family of plants. It is also related to certain soft fruits (namely plums, peaches, apricots, loquats, sloes, quinces, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries), as well as to almonds, apples, pears, the dog rose and a whole host of other plants. It gets the name parsley piert from the French, perce-pierre, which means “piercing stones”. This is because it was a popular remedy in times gone by for dispersing stones in the body’s organs. It is a source of vitamin C and minerals.

Spinach
Spinach contains iron, calcium, folic acid, vitamin K, vitamin C, fibre, carotenoids (such as lutein) and bioflavonoids.

Spirulina
Spirulina is a blue-green microalgae. It contains between 55 and 70% protein (more than beef, chicken, and soybeans), 8 essential and 10 non-essential amino acids, as well as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), beta-carotene, linoleic acid, arachidonic acid, vitamin K, pantothenic acid, magnesium, potassium, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, iron, copper, manganese, nucleic acids RNA and DNA, chlorophyll and phycocyanin (a pigment-protein complex that is found only in blue-green algae).

I bought this powder for my frail elderly mum. She lost a lot of weight during a prolonged illness and needs to bulk up her eating. It’s very difficult for her to eat more as she has issues swallowing, so easily digestible, soluble foods are one of her few options. The dietician offered her some protein powders, but she as she is lactose intolerant, and has other allergies, she was not able to use them. They couldn’t provide an alternative. It’s early days, and this powder is not a ‘miracle cure’ but it does give her some good protein nutrition which she can easily prepare and which she finds extremely palatable, in fact, she even said she likes it, whereas she’s found other products not very palatable and therefore has difficulty taking them. It isn’t going to put her weight back on, but at least I know she’s got additional nutrition and has a protein supplement – she wold struggle to achieve the same nutritional profile with the food she eats.

Im vegetarian and into my natural foods and supplements. I take a protein shake every morning as a supplement. I usually buy hemp protein but this the first one ive used that has so many added extras, that are all natural. The first taste was rough to say the least but now i like it, tastes best with rice milk. It has given me more energy and a healthier complexion. It is very good value for money. I have searched the market for good hemp proteins and tried a few, this is by far the best one ive come across. I will be sticking to it in the future.

I ordered this product because I have so many food allergies that my nutrition levels were very low and I was always feeling tired and unwell. The shake takes a bit of getting used to, taste-wise as it looks and tastes like pond water: green and gritty, after trial and error I have found that mixed with hazelnut milk and a shot of Camp coffee it is drinkable and I will definately stick with it! I have been taking one 20mg shake for breakfast, which fills me up nicely and I feel so much better already, my energy levels are up and I also seem to be losing weight, which is an added bonus for me. I am combining this with MEALtime: dairy free protein powder (300g tub powder), by the same company and I use this for a low fat snack later in the day. I would happily recommend these products to anyone wanting a nutritous meal replacement, weight loss or a supplment for an active lifestyle.

This is my first foray into using hemp protein powder for weight loss. I want to ditch a lot of bread, pasta and rice from my daily intake so I’m looking for something that’s filling as well as good for you and this powder is certainly that. It tastes like nothing else. My first impression was silage 😉 but it isn’t too intrusive and can be mixed with a good variety of other things if you want it as a meal replacement shake/smoothie. I have a thick green shake on a morning e.g. banana, avocado, spinach and yogurt added to the full dose of this powder and a fruity one in an afternoon e.g. a good handful of frozen fruit and a banana with the max amount of powder. Although it’s not been a week yet, I’m not full of hunger pangs a few minutes after drinking it which I often was with commercial meal replacement products. I also seem to feel a lot better in myself, which has to be a Good Thing 🙂
