How is Shelled Hemp Seed Protein different than other Proteins?

The hemp nut protein is also of exceptional high quality relative to amino acid (AA) composition and the protein structure, the latter affecting digestibility and utilization of protein by our body. Hemp protein contains all of the essential amino acids in nutritionally significant amounts at a ratio closer to “complete” sources of protein (like meat, milk, eggs) than all other oil seeds except soy beans. Hemp nut protein consists of two globular proteins, albumin (1/3) and edestine (2/3), with a structure very similar to proteins manufactured in our blood, and are thus readily digestible. Hemp nut protein appears to be free of anti nutrients, which are found in soy to interfere with protein uptake. Thus, eating hempseed or nuts delivers protein with an AA composition as we need it and in a structure readily utilized.
