At UK Hemp we press the oil from the seeds and then mill the seed “cake” into three different products. In order to help you choose the milled product that suits you best we have listed them here:
First we have Protein 50 which is milled very fine (200 microns) and has 52% protein with 17% fibre.
Then Protein 40 (flour) which is slightly more course at 300 microns and has 42% protein and 32% fibre.
And then Fibre Plus which is more course again and has 47% fibre with 29% protein.
As discussed on the previous blog 90% of people in the UK do not eat enough fibre. The recommended daily amount of fibre per day (for an adult) is 30 grams. Along with this, the daily requirement for protein is .75g per kg of body weight.
Hemp has a protein structure of 65% edestin and 35% albumin, both in a highly digestible state. Hemp protein powder is considered to be one of the the richest natural source of plant-based protein available, containing all 9 essential amino acids, without any of the phytic acid in soya.
Because everyone has a unique diet and a different weight it is really quite easy to work out which product would suit you best from the list above.
As with all our products we only process mechanically which means that no solvents or other chemicals are used and we are very proud to write “100% hemp” on our ingredients – no added fillers or preservatives are used.
