Nutiva - Organic Hemp Protein Shake Chocolate - 16 oz (454 g)

Each serving of Nutiva - Organic Hemp Protein Shake Chocolate is full of organic raw protein, phytonutrients and fiber, and contains no trans fats, dairy or lactose. Hemp is a high-quality plant protein with branched-chain amino acids that are vital for good health. Organic Hemp Protein Shake Chocolate contains 66% edestin, a bioactive protein found in no other plant—and is super easy to digest! Our hemp protein powders contain 66% edestin (a bioactive globulin protein that's easy to digest) — more than any other plant!
A single serving of Organic Hemp Protein Shake Chocolate  has 10 grams of raw protein, 20% of the DV of fiber and the bonus of good-for-you essential fatty acids (2g per serving). Our hemp protein has the added distinction of being gently cold-processed, without the use of hexane, a harsh chemical solvent used to process non-organic soy protein powders. It's also vegan and comes in a non-BPA container.

Hemp Nutrition
Nutiva’s Hemp seeds, oil and protein are all derived from the nutritious seed of the versatile, historic hemp plant, which has been revered for thousands of years for a variety of health improving benefits. The hemp seed is the richest known source of polyunsaturated fats, containing a perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 linolenic Acid and Omega-3 linolenic acid. In fact, the hemp seed balance of Omega 3 to 6 fats is the perfect proportions for human dietary needs, making hemp an ideal addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle.

The Omega fats, or “essential” fats in hemp seeds are crucial to human health and they are called essential because they can only be obtained through diet. Without essential fats, the body is at an increased risk of developing deficiencies that can cause slow wound healing, hair loss, skin conditions, and a greater risk of infection from the common cold and flu. Imbalance of Omega fatty acids, including too many Omega-6's, common in trans fats containing foods like fast food, animal products and processed junk food can lead to diseases including heart disease, hypertension, stroke, arthritis and diabetes.

The hemp seed is one of the best sources of nutritious plant protein. Hemp is also loaded with all 20 amino acids (including the 9 essential). Plant protein, such as hemp, is vital for vegans and vegetarians, and is also preferred by many world class athletes for its dense nutrition. The protein found in hemp hearts is very digestible, with no known allergies, which makes it an excellent choice for sensitive diets.

Hemp also contains phytonutrients, which may boost immunity, purify the skin, and strengthen connective tissue. Hemp seeds may help with the reduction of cholesterol and blood pressure, reduce inflammation, increase healing time, improve circulation, and boost overall immune function and performance.

Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein Frequently Asked Questions

Are Nutiva's hemp products raw?
Yes, Nutiva's hemp products are cold-processed (under 104°F) from raw, live hemp seeds. Nutiva utilizes a mechanical process to remove the hard shells, yielding their delicious shelled hemp seeds. Their hemp oil is expeller-pressed from the seeds without the use of hexane or other toxic solvents. Nutiva's hemp protein powder is made from specially milled hemp seed cake with the oil removed.

Are Nutiva seed bars raw?
No, they are not technically raw because the honey in Nutiva's bars is heated to around 200°F, so they are not considered to be raw.

Why is Nutiva's commitment to Fresh Is Best important?
Everyone knows fresh foods and oils taste better and are more nutritious. Nutiva is committed to offering the freshest products available. Nutiva guarantee this by utilizing the optimal manufacturing and storage methods for each product. Nutiva also mark the production and "Best Before" dates on all their products.

How should I store my hemp seed, hemp oil, and hemp protein powder?
It is best to keep hemp products refrigerated or in the freezer and to use them within 8-12 weeks of opening. You can also store unopened hempseed products in a cool dry place such as a basement.

Are hemp foods legal to import, buy and consume in the United States?
Yes. The case HIA v DEA established that hemp foods are exempt from control in the Controlled Substances Act. An excellent overview of the case can be found on the Vote Hemp web site on their DEA Hemp Food Rules page.

If I recently consumed hemp foods, could I fail a drug test?
If the only source of the psychoactive THC in your body is from hemp foods, produced from Canadian grown hemp seeds and eaten in reasonable quantities, it is virtually impossible to fail a drug test by ingesting hemp foods due to the fact that THC levels in their products are barely measurable.

The TestPledge program is a voluntary commitment by the North American hemp food industry to limit THC concentrations to levels where they cannot result in positive drug tests. Nutiva joined the TestPledge program in 2001. Nutiva's hemp food products meet Canadian government and TestPledge standards for hemp foods.

Nutiva recommend that you read the TestPledge Answers page first. If you need more technical information please download and read the study summary "Evaluating Interference of THC in Hemp Food Products With Employee Drug Testing," which was prepared by Gero Leson, D.Env. and Petra Pless.

10-17-2007
Here is an e-mail they received about Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein powder and drug testing from a Department of Defense employee:

I work for the Department of Defense and was finally selected for random urinalysis after 18 years. I wasn't the least bit worried - until that night when I went home to fix a fruit shake in which I use your hemp protein powder. As I took it out of the refrigerator, it suddenly occurred to me that it has a very small amount of THC in it. Having been a drug/alcohol abuse officer in the Air Force years ago, I understood the potential implications, including the fact that THC is detectable far longer than many drugs of abuse. I called Nutiva the next day, and was told that because you can't ever know what other behaviors a customer may be engaging in, you cannot say for certain that your products could not cause a positive urinalysis for THC. However, I was assured that it was HIGHLY unlikely by itself - especially the protein powder because of the way it's processed (i.e. lower oil content than some other products). I promised to provide you with feedback either way my test turned out. My understanding is that the Department of Defense uses state-of-the-art testing. I passed, despite using your hemp protein powder multiple times every week for months. I know it's no guarantee, but it may relieve others who are not using illegal substances but who may be using your products, and become concerned about drug testing. Thanks.

What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Marijuana and hemp both come from the same species of plant, Cannabis sativa L., but from different varieties. There are different varieties of Cannabis, just as Chihuahuas and St. Bernards are different breeds of dogs, Canis familiari.

  • Marijuana is the flowering tops and leaves of psychoactive varieties of Cannabis that are grown for their high THC content.
  • Hemp, also referred to as industrial hemp, are low-THC varieties of Cannabis that are grown for their seeds and fiber. Hemp is grown legally in just about every industrialized country except the USA.

What is the recommended daily intake of hemp seeds?
Health practitioners suggest three to five tablespoons of shelled hempseed per day.

What is the difference between hemp hearts and hemp seeds?
Nothing! Hemp hearts are the same shelled, nutritious, organic, raw food as shelled hemp seeds. Some people refer to them as hemp hearts and some refer to them as shelled hemp seeds, where the hard outer shell of the seed has been removed. Whatever you call them, they are tasty and nutritious!

What is the recommended daily intake of hemp oil?
Health practitioners suggest one or two tablespoons of hemp oil per day.

Why is hemp so nutritious?
Hemp oil contains the most essential fatty acids (EFAs) of any nut or seed oil, with the omega-3 and omega-6 EFAs occurring in the nutritionally optimal 1:3 ratio.

Why are essential fatty acids (EFAs) important?
Essential fatty acids cannot be produced by the human body; they must be obtained from your diet. As the name implies, they are essential to your health and well being. Seventy percent of adults who eat a typical Western diet do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids, and at the same time, they get too much omega-6 fatty acids. This imbalance can cause a wide range of health problems.

What are the benefits of hemp vs. flax?
Shelled hempseed is more easily digested than ground flax seed, while whole flax seed passes through your body undigested. Hemp seed and hemp oil also contain higher-potency omega derivatives, GLA and SDA, which flax seed lacks.

    Has a great taste. Does not mix as well as other chocolate milk powdered mixes. My daughter and I mixed it with coconut milk without adding anything else to it and it was really good. My daughter says it was kind of chalky where the powder did not mix well and formed chunks.
