Hemp Protein Powder Au

Hemp protein powder is a plant protein and nutritional powerhouse! It's a rich source of protein, essential omega fatty acids, dietary fibre, minerals, antioxidants and phyto-nutrients that can benefit your health.

It's organic, vegan, alkaline, and naturally free of gluten, dairy, soy, and other allergens*. It has a pleasant earthy nutty taste, and makes a great smoothie base. It also works well in recipes such as muffins, balls, cookies, bars and desserts, or any other application that boosts protein intake.

Hemp protein is made by milling pressed hemp seeds into a fine powder and is sold with varying protein content depending on the level of milling and extraction.

Hemp seeds are free from THC and legal in New Zealand. See the Certificate of Analysis below.

The Best Hemp Protein Powder

The best hemp protein powders balance high levels of protein with the healthy fats and nutrients that hemp is renowned for.

Hemp seeds are typically refined to powder with varying ~50%, ~60%, and ~70% protein content. Our product has a protein content of ~60% as we feel this is the best balance between maintaining high levels of protein with omega fatty acids and nutrients essential for function and growth.

Don't choose a hemp protein with ~50 or ~70% protein levels! The hemp powders with higher ~70% protein content achieve this level by removing most of the good omega fatty acids and essential nutrients, and the ~50% varieties lack the level of amino acids needed to be considered a quality source of protein.

Complete Protein

Hemp has a complete amino acid profile, containing all nine essential amino acids and branched chain amino acids that the body cannot produce and must be supplied from the foods we consume.

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and muscle tissue, more commonly referred to as the 'building blocks of life'. Hemp seeds contain all 21 amino acids required to support essential metabolic function, making it a source of protein to assist muscle repair and development. Not every plant protein has a complete amino profile - another reason why we recommend this product.

Note that leucine is at lower levels than other protein powders. Leucine is one of three branched chain amino acids and is primarily involved in muscle protein synthesis for muscle growth and recovery. While we recommend this product for vegans and non-vegans alike (especially for the best daily breakfast smoothie), we do not recommend it as the sole source of protein if your goal is maximum muscle gain. Adding a BCAA supplement could help to overcome this.

Hemp vs Whey vs Pea Protein

Which protein is best - hemp, whey, or pea?

All sources have similar levels of calories and protein, but whey and pea have more concentrated amino acid profiles. Whey has the superior amino acid profile and is the fastest to digest.

Hemp contains many other essential nutrients needed for regular body function such as fatty acids and fibre, which whey and pea lack. Therefore we recommend consuming both - hemp makes the best healthy smoothie base and whey is better suited to consuming around physical exercise when amino acid uptake is more critical. Whey is a milk product so not suitable for vegans - if avoiding animal proteins then pea can be used around physical exercise instead of whey.

For a full analysis see our blog article hemp vs whey vs pea.

hemp protein powder in black scoop


Hemp, being a plant based protein, is a slower digesting protein powder than general animal types. In saying that, the digestibility rate is high with 91-97.5% of the protein easily digestible.

The better a protein is digested, the more efficiently it can be used by the body. The digestibility of any given protein is related to the concentrations of its amino acids. The Protein Digestibility-Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) is a rating that determines the bioavailibility of a protein. The maximum score was traditionally 1.0 but newer proteins such as whey exceed this scale. This Australia New Zealand Food Standards report gives hemp seeds a PDCAAS score of 0.9. This is greater than most grains, nuts and legumes.

Essential Fatty Acids

Hemp seeds are a good source of Essential omega Fatty Acids (EFAs). EFAs are vital for heart health and in creating a healthy immune system and reducing inflammation in the body. Inflammation is a leading cause of illness and chronic disease such as arthritis and cancer.

Consuming hemp is an easy way to add more EFAs to your diet. Though hemp protein powder is made by pressing hemp seeds to remove some of the oils, this product is only partially processed - meaning that some of the EFAs and nutrients essential for function and growth remain.

This product has a total of 4.2 grams of essential omega fatty acids per serve, and 13.4 grams of EFAs per 100 grams of product. This does mean that the calories in this product are just slightly higher than other similar protein powders, but we believe that the benefits of having these crucial healthy fats outweigh the slightly higher calories.

Good Source of Fibre

Fibre is the part of the food that cannot be digested by the body. It is important in the maintenance of a healthy balanced diet as it helps to keep our bowels functioning and healthy.

High fibre diets have many reported benefits including lowered risk of heart disease, constipation and diabeties (improved blood sugar). Fibre also promotes healthier gut bacteria and a reduced risk of bowel cancer. Men should consume 38 grams and women should consume 25 grams of fibre daily.

Our hemp protein is an easy way to add fibre to your diet. It contains 2.4g of dietary fibre per serve, or 7.8g per 100g. By drinking just one shake or smoothie you'll get 6-10% of your recommended daily intake and, because fibre can keep you feeling full for longer, you may find it more satisfying.

By comparison other protein powders, such as pea, egg, and dairy based powders, contain very little fibre.

Why is Hemp Protein White in Colour?

Hemp protein is typically white in colour. Our product is white in colour because the outer green skin casings of hulled hemp seeds are removed. This creates a whiter colour product that has a smoother texture and better taste, while being less gritty. There is no nutritional loss due to the colour difference.

Hemp and marijuana both come from the same plant species, the Cannabis Sativa L, but there are differences between the two. Hemp seeds are cultivated from the hemp plant which is grown for applications in the automobile, clothing, body care, plastic, and food industries. Marijuana plants are different to hemp plants and are grown for medicinal and recreational use.

As the plants are grown for different uses they require different growing conditions. Generally, hemp requires minimal care and is able to grow in most climates. Marijuana is usually grown in more carefully controlled atmospheres

Marijuana plants contain high levels of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is the active component and produces the "high", ie the psychoactive component of the plant. Marijuana plants can contain THC levels of between 5-35%. By comparison hemp plants contain THC levels of <0.3%.

The actual hemp seeds do not contain THC. Hemp protein powder is made from hemp seeds. It is the other parts of the hemp plant (leaves/flowers) that contain THC.

hemp protein certificate of analysis june 2022

Side Effects

Though technically the leaves/flowers could contaminate seeds if not processed correctly, hemp plants contain such low levels of THC (<0.3%) that even if so, according to this study, the THC levels are not even significant enough to fail a drug test.

According to Jolene Formene, staff attorney at Drug Policy Alliance, “Hemp seeds are non-psychoactive, meaning that consumers cannot get high by eating them".

Other side effects from hemp seeds are uncommon. Those with allergies to hemp should avoid this product. As this product contains fibre some people may experience sensations of gas, diarrhea or bloating if over-consumed.

Other Benefits & Conclusion

Hemp seeds are a good source of nutrients including iron, calcium and potassium. Hemp seeds also contain antioxidants called lignanamides, including four types newly discovered and unique to them.

The diversity of hemp seed composition, including these types of antioxidants and nutrients, make hemp seed protein a reasonable choice for a protein powder and our recommended choice as the best smoothie base and in baking applications.

Really great protein, mixes well, not grainy, pretty neutral taste (I buy the unflavoured one and add to smooties). I like that it isn't overly refined and still contains some omega 3s from the hemp seeds
Review by: Luke on Mon, Jul 4, 2022 12:10 PM
Great tasting protein! Not heavy, or gritty/sandy,great to add when baking(adds nuttiness)!
Review by: Ivan on Wed, Jun 29, 2022 12:11 PM
Good quality and nice taste. I was worried the Vanilla might be too sweet or have a weird after taste but it's really nice. I used to get the 'no flavour' but find the vanilla is delicious in smoothies.

Very different from whey protein, which I was use to. Texture is a bit gritty and a lot less creamy. I bought vanilla, but the hemp flavour overpowers any hint of vanilla. However, WAY lighter in the stomach and the aforementioned is a small price to pay for the way it makes you feel. Greater energy and a speedier recovery.

Review by: Sean on Fri, Nov 19, 2021 3:58 PM
Awesome stuff, by far my favourite protein powder. I like the natural, slightly nutty flavour. In the past, I always went for the natural flavour, but recently I decided to try the gourmet vanilla, and it's great. The vanilla is not overpowering and I couldn't smell it, just taste it. It also is a little sweeter than the natural version.
Review by: Juergen on Sun, Nov 14, 2021 10:00 AM
Finally, a hemp protein that doesn't taste like dirt. Doesn't taste amazing, but it's not bad either! Doesn't bloat me like whey, and even pea proteins do. I'll purchase again.

Review by: Paul on Fri, Jun 4, 2021 6:54 AM
Love the actual protein it’s really nice - only downside is the packaging - no option to bulk buy in a bigger size so we are getting 1kg bags which amounts to a lot of unnecessary plastic waste - the only reason we have started looking at other companies for our next order of protein would love if you guys would create a packaging that was biodegradable or even reused plastic.

I have tried few plant based protein powder before, but didn’t find the match. Either the taste puts me off or like pea protein got too much fibre and causing unsettled runny issues. What I like about NZ Protein is that you get to purchase sample packs and try them out before spend a lot on a 1kg pack. Personally I like the taste and so far my tummy is very happy with it too. I’m a full time personal trainer who doesn’t consume a lot of diary so this is perfect for me atm. 😊

The Hemp protein is my go to protein supplement. Can't tolerate any dairy and not fond of the other alternatives. Blends well, tastes great. NZ proteins order and delivery process faultless!
Review by: John on Tue, Apr 6, 2021 9:11 AM
compared to other hemp proteins ive encountered its really good, mixability is good aswell.

i have one scoop (half a serving) with one scoop of berry pea protein, frozen mixed fruit, almond milk and some juice for an post workout or late snack smoothie, where never fails to impress me.

taking half a scoop in my opinion doesnt give you that strong earthy taste that most hemp proteins do as much, especially when fruit and juice is involved and lasts longer for those on a budget 😁

Thanks nzprotein

Nice easily dissolvable protein.
Doesn't leave me feeling bloated and heavy like the whey.
Review by: Dan on Tue, Feb 25, 2020 9:52 AM
The vanilla hemp protein powder is delicious and mixes so easily. Mixing it with yoghurt makes the tastiest dessert!

Very happy with the product, I bought pea protein many times before and never happy with the flavours, I sich to Hem protein and I love the test and how good it mix with milk and yogurt.
If you looking for a plan base protein, I recommend this one as it has lowers sodium that pea protein.

The best animal-free protein for sure

Great value for money. Not an overpowering flavour compared to other brands. Looking forward to the vanilla flavour dropping:

A nice nutty taste, like LSA, and my skin didn't react to it like other proteins!
Review by: Tim on Mon, Dec 23, 2019 12:06 PM
This is the best tasting, best value hemp protein I have ever tried. It's even ok blended in just water with nothing else. This is my staple protein now. Can't reccomend enough

Great plant protein, the taste in my usual berry smoothie is great, no graininess at all - unlike pea proteins....I really like that there's no artificial sweetener (or stevia, thank goodness) in it either. The Whey Isolate recently seems exceptionally sweet, perhaps they slipped when adding the Sucralose, the Hemp protein tastes more natural, not messed with! I'll definitely buy again, this is going to be my regular protein.

Id recommend not drinking it by itself, I tried with almond milk and water, its not too hard to get down, blend easily. just taste like blended grass. With smoothies its good!
Review by: Brett on Wed, Nov 20, 2019 9:43 AM
This goes well with soy milk and almond milk. Adds a great nutty flavour! Will be ordering more.

On recomendation I have tried the Hemp Protein, and while the taste is different it is agreeing with me more than the Pea Protein.
Its only been a week, but I have already noticed a differnce in how I feel each day.

Review by: Buck on Wed, Oct 23, 2019 8:14 AM
Have only been using this product for a few months in combination with whey protein. It mixes well into a smoothie and seems to be a powerhouse of nutrients and keeps me feeling full and not needing to snack between meals. I shall continue to use Hemp protein as well as Whey protein.

NZ Protein offers a brilliant delivery service - can?t be beaten!!

Based on the reviews I didn?t have super high hopes but I actually really enjoy it! I use it for smoothies :)

Great product good price quick delivery would purchase again
Review by: bruce on Wed, Oct 9, 2019 6:57 AM
I was so impressed with this protein! I was looking for a cheaper protein as I go through it quite quickly and for 1kg of hemp at only $45 including shipping I was sold! I personally haven?t enjoyed the taste of hemp in the past and was a little concerned that with it being unflavoured and not sweetened etc that it would taste gross. But nope! I can hardly taste it in my smoothies and tastes nice in my porridge. Absolutely love this product! And not gritty at all. Will be buying again!
Review by: Rebekah on Fri, Sep 27, 2019 9:31 AM
I use this in baking and in my morning smoothies and I really like the nutty taste of hemp. This is definitely the best deal I've found for a kilo of the stuff with a good protein percentage.

Tastes a bit green but that is to be expected. Very nice when mixed with berries.

Really good Organic Hemp Protein Powder!! Great consistency and neutral taste for smoothies etc!
Review by: Anonymous on Wed, Aug 21, 2019 1:33 PM
Great product.
Has a natural nutty flavour, mixes really easy.
Is a little grainy which is normal for Hemp Protein powder.
I mix it with the Pea Protein.
Very easy to consume.

Very very fast delivery as usual.

This is the best hemp protein that I have found so far in NZ. I have tried a few others and the macros of this one, and the price, are good. For people wondering of the flavour, to me, it tastes like ground oats added to milk, perhaps a tad nuttier and earthier. The main benefit is the digestibility; it provides no bloat for me unlike whey protein.
Review by: Anonymous on Tue, May 28, 2019 11:39 AM
Thought I?d give hemp protein a go as an alternative to whey. In the 3 weeks I?ve been using it I?ve found it to be really good. My Stomach feels less bloated than when using whey protein. Texture is smooth however the flavour is a shocker (very earthy!). I recommend adding it to a smoothie. I add banana, frozen berries, honey nz protein super foods powder and some almond butter and blend it with water. Would be nice if it came with an added flavour.
