Hemp protein

Hemp protein is the protein content of hemp seeds. The protein in hemp seeds is made up of two globulin types of proteins, edestin (60-80%) and albumin , [1] with essential amino acids. [2] [3] Hemp protein has a PDCAAS score of 0.61 (a limiting amino acid being lysine , with a digestibility of 94.9%) [4] and a biological value of 87. citation needed ] The total proportion of essential amino acidsin hemp protein isolate, is also significantly higher than that of soy protein isolate. [5]

Hemp protein has been shown to reduce oxidative stress in hypertensive rats. [6]
