Vegan Protein Has More Grams of Protein Than Beef?!

What vegan protein I’m I talking about? Well, it comes for hemp seeds of course! If you’ve never eaten hemp foods you may not know about a very important  protein globulin. Edestin. This virtually unknown component in hemp seeds is also one that the human body has naturally. Though some of us may have lower levels than others, our bodies all use it in many ways. Organic Hemp seed & Hemp Protein Powders are comprised of 66% edestin.  The word edestin originates from the Greek word edestos, which means edible. If you want a highly assimilable raw, organic, vegan protein edestin is it– and hemp is where you can find it. HERE is a great way to eat it.

Organic Hemp seeds and Organic Plain Hemp Protein Powders have between 35-50% protein per serving. This percentage of protein per serving depends on whether it is the Hempseed itself (35% protein) or Hemp Protein Powder… for example– one of my favorite hemp companies Nutiva, has two plain (nothing added) organic hemp protein powders. Original Hemp Protein Plus Fiber (37% protein) with 11 grams of protein per  30 grams and their 50% Hemp Protein Powder with 15 grams of protein per 30 grams. What’s even MORE  important then knowing about  hemp brands is the fact that hemp seeds with 35% protein, have more grams of protein per serving than beef!! Beef only has 8.8 grams per 1 oz serving. Hemp seeds have 10 grams for a 1 oz serving! BTW hemp seeds are what is ground up and pressed to make Hemp Protein Powder. Now that you know hemp has more protein than beef—you can spread the word. Tell your mom–she’ll tell your dad, then let your brother know, be sure to tell your best friend and then…copy the url above and share the link and let your 657  facebook friends know.

With Gratitude,

      Hi Debbie, 1oz of hemp seeds has 11 grams of protein, 1oz of beef is 8 grams of protein. Thanks for asking. :)

      Thanks for posting though I’m not sure where you got 4-6 oz of hemp seeds. As I said in my post 1 oz of hemp seeds has more protein than 1 oz of beef. I personally consume at least 3- oz a day of hemp seeds on average–and I find it quite easy :)
