Protein/Fibre Ratio 43/32%

Hemp Protein 40 is naturally produced from UK grown hemp seed, processed at our award-winning factory here in Wiltshire. It has a lower protein/fibre ratio and a slightly more course texture than Hemp Protein 50 (P50) which is reflected in the price.    A highly versatile, nutrient dense powder milled to 300 microns, it is a free-flowing powder, brown/green in colour with a mild, nutty taste.  It is milled from seed cake after the oil has been removed by cold pressing (defatted).  It is mechanically processed only using no heat or chemicals.


In food manufacturing it is often used to improve on applications historically served by soybeans, peas, lentils, quinoa, pumpkin and flax. It is often used to fortify or enhance products in the baking, ready meal, pasta and health snack industries. 

Overview:  High protein content, great amino acid profile, rich in vitamins and minerals, high in both soluble and insoluble fibre, very low fat, no sugar or salt, very low in carbs, natural colour enhancer, along with its non-allergenicity and a mild flavour are just a few of the useful attributes for food manufacturers and domestic users alike.

Sustainability:   UK grown to reduce carbon footprint.  Due to its impressive capability for carbon sequestration, hemp seed products are considered to be carbon neutral.  Click here for more details.

Hemp protein is a complete protein, meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids that the human body needs but cannot produce.

  • PROTEINS:  Hemp Protein P40 naturally contains all 20 amino acids along with the easily digestible proteins edestin (65%) and albumin (35%) both of which are critical to ongoing health.  About 65% of the proteins contained in hemp protein consist of the easily digestible protein edestin, a so-called storage protein (contains amino acids).  The remaining 35% is albumin, a high-quality protein whose structure is similar to that of the protein in a chicken egg.  About 50% of the protein content in blood plasma consists of albumin. It is also considered a transport protein for magnesium and calcium, for example.   Both albumin and edestin are globular proteins ie soluble in water, acids and bases.

  • MINERAL AND VITAMINS:  Hemp Protein 40 naturally contains plenty of nutrients like vitamins E and B (including folate) along with a bevy of minerals, such as phosphorous, potassium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, calcium, copper and iron.  All of these contribute to supporting immunity at a cellular level and creating antibodies to fight free radicals and bacteria.

  • FIBRE:  One of the most remarkable benefits of the product comes from its fibre content a total of 32%.  Soluble fibre turns into a nourishing gel in the gut that promotes a healthy microbiome.  The other component, insoluble fibre increases gut transit times and helps to regulate gut functionality.

  • PRODUCT: As with all our products, hemp fibre plus is UK grown, GMO free, suitable for vegans and free of all allergens.

  • ENVIRONMENT:  Sustainable (UK grown).  Due to its impressive capability for carbon sequestration, our hemp seed products are considered to be carbon neutral.
