Hello,



Does anybody out there use hemp seeds as a protein substitite? and if so, what are your views on it.

Whole hemp seeds contain approximately 25% protein, 31% fat (in the form of a nutritious oil), and 34% carbohydrates, in addition to an interesting array of vitamins and minerals.



...



Hemp protein contains all 20 known amino acids including the 9 essential amino acids (EAAs) our bodies cannot produce. Proteins are considered complete when they contain all 9 essential amino acids in a sufficient quantity and ratio to meet the body's needs. Hemp seeds contain an adequate supply of these high quality proteins (EAAs) for a well balanced diet.



...



Approximately 65% of the protein in hemp seeds is made up of the globulin protein Edestin and is found only in hemp seed. Edestin aids digestion, is relatively phosphorus-free and considered the backbone of the cell's DNA. The other one third of hemp seed protein is Albumin, another high quality globulin protein similar to that found in egg whites.

You appear to be operating under the mistaken assumption that veg*ns need to take specific action to correct a protein deficiency that may develop if meat/dairy products are eliminated from the diet. This is what the meat and dairy industries would love you to think. 350,000 Americans will prematurely die this year of vascular diseases directly resulting from their consumption of meat and dairy products. If you had asked these folks prior to their tragic deaths why they had insisted on committing slow suicide, they would have replied, "protein!" The fact is that a widely varied, whole foods, plant-based diet provides all of the amino acids you require. For more information on protein, read "The China Study" by T. Colin Campbell, available from amazon.com for $17. This will be the best money you ever spent on nutrition



Good luck!

I eat a varied diet that includes beans, whole grains, tofu, seeds, and vegetables. This sort of diet provides a person all the protein he needs.



Interesting link, Troub.
