Chickpeas, Chia Seed, and Hemp Seed Provide Good Nutrition
When Hempe set about to make their vegetarian, vegan, non-GMO plant protein product, they chose some of the most nutritious sources of vegetable protein available. Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are packed with nutrients such as protein, fiber, and antioxidants. Chickpeas have been a staple of diets for thousands of years. Chia originated in Central and South America and provide not only protein, but omega-3 fatty acids and minerals. Hempe also incorporates hemp seed in their product which also provide protein, but which are a good source of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. All of these ingredients have a mild, pleasant taste.
Hempe Uses the Concept Behind Tempe to Make Their Plant Protein
It’s no accident that Hempe seems to sound so close to Tempe. Tempe involves the use of soybeans that are fermented with the use of a certain type of fungus to make them more nutritious. And this is precisely what Hempe has done to create their organic Cultured Plant Protein. Chickpeas are combined with hemp and chia seeds, then mixed together along with spices and herbs. Now it’s time for the mushroom inoculant to be added, followed by turmeric and coconut oil. Once everything is mixed well, it is put into bags and kept in a humidity- and temperature-controlled environment to cure. As the Hempe is curing, the mycelia from the fungal spores grow through the mixture, adding their own distinctive flavor and making the protein more readily available. Hempe Organic Cultured Plant Protein Chickpeas & Hemp Seeds is now ready to be used for every meal of the day.
