Collection: Hemp Protein

Hemp Protein is a Healthy Alternative to Mainstream Powders

Stringent lab testing and quality control allow Kakariki Fine Foods to bring you a high quality range of hemp protein offering tremendous health benefits. Produced by crushing hemp seeds into a fine powder, our range is a versatile way to incorporate added protein and fibre into your diet. Our products are plant-based, offering a vegan alternative to traditional powders.

Benefits of Hemp Protein Powder

With the increasing demand for vegan foods and supplements, hemp powder offers a plant-based protein source that delivers excellent nutritional value for your body.

  • Hemp offers a complete protein supplement that contains all nine essential amino acids that we obtain from food. The unsaturated fats contained in our hemp protein powder promote favourable heart health, and can lower cholesterol. Rich in minerals and antioxidants, our powder can prevent oxidative damage to your body by balancing the level of free radicals, and align your body’s natural functions.
  • Hemp protein is easily digestible as it contains the proteins edestin and albumin, which your body breaks down effortlessly.
  • Our protein powder contains hemp fibre and provides around 22% of your recommended daily fibre intake. High fibre diets provide multiple health benefits like improved levels of blood sugar, healthier gut bacteria, and a lower risk of bowel cancer. Our protein powder adds protein and fibre into your diet, and this combination can result in you feeling fuller for longer.

Creative Ways to Use Hemp Protein Powder

Hemp protein has a green colouring that originates from its natural chlorophyll content. While it may turn your recipes a slight shade of khaki, it doesn’t contradict the delicious earthy flavour it provides.

  • As an addition to shakes and smoothies, hemp fibre provides a tasty means that ensures your body receives its daily dose of vitamins and minerals, without needing to change your routine. Mixed with fresh fruit and coconut milk, this shake is suitable for both pre- and post-workouts, and helps your body to recover naturally from a strenuous session at the gym.
  • Make your own raw energy bites with hemp powder. Acting as a natural binder, the flour-like consistency is easily mixed with your favourite nut butter and coconut shavings to form bite-sized balls that provide a boost of energy when you most require.
  • Mixing a spoon of powder in with your porridge gives your favourite winter warmer an extra morning energy boost. Known for its slow release of energy, porridge and protein powder mixed with your daily oats fuels your body for the day. If you prefer a grain-free cereal, mixing your hemp powder with some coconut flour, and some dairy-free milk creates a light and fluffy plant-based starter for your day.

Signs you Should Invest in Hemp fibre

Are you sick of feeling bloated, a constant lack of energy or impromptu headaches after consuming whey protein? This is a sign that you should switch from dairy-based shakes to plant-based alternatives. Hemp protein is hypoallergenic, and easily digestible, and will not cause gut discomfort that you get from whey. The natural ingredients are kinder to your body, and to the environment too.
