This hemp protein brand does seem to be slightly better quality than most out there, however I found this food to be unsatisfying to my energy needs. Contrary to what many people think, hemp does not have a high protein value.
The taste is not terrible but is so much worse than other protein powders that do help me to feel satiated (pea protein, sunwarrior rice protein, chia seeds). I only gave hemp protein another try to avoid constipation I get with rice products.
What does seem to provide good nutritional benefit atleast in EFAs are the vacuumed packed whole hemp seeds available through iherb. The oils are rich so I prefer them mixed with cereal.
My recommendation is to pass this one over - try protein from peas, rice, and (if not a vegan) beef by Olympia Labs.
