This product has changed. Here's what's new, it's:

  • Still made from dehulled hemp seeds (ie hemp hearts), so has a similar look and taste to before. IE, it's pale in colour and not green.
  • Slightly lower in protein - sitting at 50% instead of 60%, but with higher fibre and the good nutrients that hemp is renowned for. Since we have always recommended hemp protein as more of a smoothie base than a post exercise shake, we think the higher goodness is beneficial.
  • Completely grown and processed in New Zealand.
  • Priced the same as before. The previous 60% protein hemp had increased drastically in price and would have now sat at around $60/kg.

Nutritional Powerhouse

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 spray free, 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.

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 now has a protein content of ~50%, with higher fibre and nutrients than before.

Hemp with 50% protein contains more fibre, fatty acids, and nutrients than hemp with 60% and especially 70% protein levels. Some of these nutrients are found only in hemp protein, therefore this product is the kind of product that goes well as a smoothie base - more so than a post workout shake (there are plenty of other protein powders for post exercise).

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.

Digestibility

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 7.3g of dietary fibre per serve, or 23.5g per 100g. By drinking just one shake or smoothie you'll get 24% 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?

Our product is white in colour because the outer green skin casings of hulled hemp seeds are removed. IE, this product is made from dehulled hemp seeds, which are white in colour. This creates a smoother texture and better taste, while being less gritty.

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.

ESR test report for hemp hearts

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.

Terrible to digest, sent me to the toilet numerous times, new formulation is really not good and I would have rather paid more for the old one version which was just fine. NZPROTEIN REPLY: we have emailed you

Review by: Guy on Sun, Apr 28, 2024 12:27 PM
Agree with the review below, would like the old one back at higher price if necessary, much worse taste, harder to mix and less protein (which was kinda the point in a protein supplement). NZPROTEIN REPLY: noted, thanks. We have emailed you
Review by: Khan on Tue, Apr 16, 2024 8:30 AM
Just finished a bag of the previous organic hemp protein to open a new one this morning. Could tell instantly it was different. The taste is way more potent and it mixes terribly. All the fibre sinks to the bottom. I would have happily paid for the price increase, a real shame they changed products. This new one is also not organic. Will not be buying again and would not recommend it at all. Is it possible to get the old product back? NZPROTEIN REPLY: sorry to hear this, we will email you

Excellent quality. Great protein boost. Tasted nice in my smoothies. Would be a repeat customer.
Review by: Juliana on Tue, Apr 2, 2024 1:06 PM
Hey NZ Protein team appreciate there has been an increase in the cost of production for Hemp Protein and some trade-offs are required however this updated recipe is almost undrinkable. I have been ordering this product consistently for over 5 years and would be willing to pay the extra costs to bring the previous recipe back. The reduced protein content at 16g per serve makes it difficult to justify and I am likely going to have to go back to your pea protein. Love your products team NZPROTEIN REPLY: thanks for the feedback, we will email you :)
Review by: Cam on Wed, Mar 27, 2024 9:02 AM
This product is not very palatable so you definitely need to mix it with other fruits or flavours to hide the taste. I don't think I will buy this one again.

Difficult to enjoy…. But that’s the protein type, not the brand!
Bought a bag after watching Netflix docos promoting plant based eating (after using whey for the past 20 odd years).
Hemp seems to be the best option of all the plant based proteins? Having tried the pea protein previously (probably for the same reason) found this one also tasted like dirt. Not a slight on the product as I’m sure I would find this with any brand, and be wary when something is described generally as having an ‘earthy’ flavour.
Mixed well in smoothies, mixes a lot ‘thicker’ than whey.
Sorry NZ Protein, just not for me. Will stick to whey from now on.

My clients love this protein powder because of how smooth it is but please bring back a flavour! Unflavoured as a shake is not so nice haha vanilla was ok but we would love a strawberry!
Review by: Laura on Mon, Jan 8, 2024 7:45 AM
I love the taste and texture of hemp protein. I prefer inflavoured protein powders, and usually mix the hemp with unsweetened cocoa powder and unflavoured whey protein to get something that tastes delicious and not at all fake.
Review by: Anonymous on Fri, Dec 8, 2023 12:18 PM
This is the best plant-based protein in NZ. I am intolerant to peas and faba beans, so it is usually a challenge to find a plant-based protein in the market. And I feel I am lucky enough to have found this as the texture is excellent, much better than any of the hemp proteins I had found before and the rice proteins which usually have the worst texture. This one dissolves very easily and there is no after taste, being the perfect match to my morning shakes.

Not bad. Can blend with ice, almond milk, banana and chocolate to make an ice cream. Wish there was a chocolate flavour. Will probably order again, because it's a great price.
Review by: Anonymous on Tue, Aug 22, 2023 5:15 PM
This powder works very well in my healthier Anzac biscuit recipe. I’ve swapped butter for olive oil and changed the flour and coconut for a mix of NZ Protein Vanilla Hemp powder, sesame seeds, chopped nuts and wholemeal flour. It mixes in to the dry ingredients easily and once lump free the wet ingredients can be combined. Visitors who had no knowledge of my higher fibre and protein alterations commented of how delicious they were. I don’t recommend a certain supermarket hemp powder though as it is green and the colour is still there when cooked.
Review by: Nikki on Sat, Aug 12, 2023 11:55 AM
Great products, been using it in my smoothies daily for past couple of weeks. So far Ive really noticed the differences it is making on my gut health.
It does have a strong smell when I open the container but I dont notice it once I add it to my smoothie mix. It taste delicious. I will definitely be buying more

Review by: Mary on Fri, Sep 23, 2022 2:24 PM
Great for smoothies and mixed in with morning oats. Best plant based protein I’ve had by far. No gut issues or gas, no acne, no acid reflux, nothing.

Just good, minimally processed and high quality protein. Highly recommended for anyone trying to avoid dairy, it’s cost effective too.

Probably not great on it’s own with water, but with a banana etc it’s great and mixes very nicely.

Thanks nz protein for providing a good cost effective option for us.
Review by: Richie on Thu, Sep 22, 2022 3:00 PM
Tastes grate, mixes well, it isn't too gritty, and it's the most affordable hemo protein I've come across. I mix it with my cereal, smoothies, or have it by itself every day - honestly couldn't be without it anymore haha.

I add one scoop of the Gourmet Vanilla Hemp Protein powder to a bowl of dry whole grain oatmeal, and then I add a second scoop of Double Chocolate Pea Protein powder to that and stir it into the dry oatmeal flakes. Simple. I then pour on a dash of of extra virgin olive oil (which helps to slow down the conversion of the carbohydrates to glucose) and add soy milk to create a rich, malt-flavoured, high protein low GI breakfast cereal. This nicely anchors the first part of my day. Next time you order from NZ Protein, get a 1kg bag of Hemp Protein and a 1kg of Pea Protein in those flavours. You won't regret it. Highly recommended.

Tried vanilla flavoured for the first time. I was expecting it to be gritty and not pleasant tasting but it surprised me! Great taste and easily mixed.

Great with just water or my favourite with Oat milk.

No bloat or discomfort after consuming like with whey.

Great product and great service.

Thanks NZ Protein.

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.

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.

Used to use Whey Protein but decided to go plant based and am really enjoying Hemp powder. Mixes into my Smoothie really well. Good product.

As always, brilliant service even in lockdown.

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

Spoilt by having yummy dairy vanilla protein isolate; this was a rude awakening. Trying hard to go plant based, however the flavour isn’t pleasant. Mixes well, however need the flavour to overpower the natural product taste. NZPROTEIN REPLY: This is a very difficult one!

A regular purchaser of Hemp protein as I can't tolerate any of the dairy or other proteins. I don't mind the unflavoured but the Vanilla is great. The order and delivery service with NZ Protein is the most slick of any on line supplier I use.
Review by: John on Wed, Oct 21, 2020 7:16 AM
I really like the texture and how it is thickish to drink. I add a scoop of a flavoured whey protein to give it some taste as otherwise a bit blah, but not in a yuk way, just tasteless.
Definately be back for more!

This was my first try of a plant based protein and first try of hemp protein. I found the hemp flavour and slightly coarser texture compared to whey protein not that great. However when I mixed it with berries, banana, olive oil, cinnamon etc it tasted fine.

I buy the Unflavoured version of this product and while it smells like hay the taste is actually quite nice. I mix it in with my Yoghurt.

The Hemp protein has a sweeter taste to it which perhaps is because of the vanilla. Good taste though. Lovit.

Great product, plant proteins I feel require a special taste buds i don't have :) even been vanilla takes abit to get use too... I have found mixing a scoop with my normal NZ protien shake I can handle it, but not on it's own. Just me maybe. I use it every second day with my normal shake. With good omega's it works for me.

If you looking for a plan base protein, I recommend this one as it has lowers sodium that pea protein.

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.
Review by: Becky on Thu, Nov 21, 2019 3:43 PM
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!

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.

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

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.
