Hemp, a nutritionally-rich Superfood, has caught the attention of a number of top health experts recently. In an interview with Jessica Rubino of Living Delicious Magazine at the Natural Foods Expo in Anaheim, CA, Jillian Michaels, well-known trainer on The Biggest Loser, said her two nutrition focuses right now are hemp and coconut. In the interview she went on to say, “I want to see hemp protein start making it out more to the masses, becoming more accessible. I think it’s a very healthy form of protein, especially for vegans and vegetarians, with no side effects. A lot of lactose intolerant people can’t do whey. I think hemp protein in the future will make a bigger splash.” (http://newhope360.com/beverage/jillian-michaels-gives-props-coconut-and-...)
The latest health experts to put their stamp of approval on hemp are Dr. Oz, named “America’s Doctor” by Oprah Winfrey and host of The Doctor Oz Show, and Samantha Heller, well-known Registered Dietician, author, radio-show host and regular on The Dr. Oz Show. During a recent show (http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/new-miracle-health-drink) the two did a blind taste-test of non-dairy alternatives and Hemp Milk was Dr. Oz’s favorite alternative to milk. Ms. Heller said, “Hemp milk is a good source of omega 3 fatty acids which have been found to be good for both the heart and brain.”
The best-selling Hemp Milk in the U.S. is Tempt. Manufactured by Portland, OR-based Living Harvest Foods, it comes in five flavors – Original, Vanilla, Chocolate, Unsweetened Original, and Unsweetened Vanilla. Other hemp products sold under the Tempt label include their creamy Frozen Desserts (pints and novelties) and a line of Protein Powders. Living Harvest recently introduced a revolutionary new hemp powder that is like no other – it’s white, neutral in taste and color, and non-gritty. It works great in smoothies.
Dan Ratner, the Company’s President said, “Our goal is to bring the goodness of hemp to everyone, and we do that by creating delicious products. After years of working to raise awareness and educate the consumers on the benefits of Hemp, it’s great to see health experts like Jillian Michaels, Samantha Heller, and Dr. Oz providing their endorsement. With a long list of benefits – vegan, gluten free, non-GMO, sustainable, high in protein and Omega 3, all 10 Essential Amino Acids, and no known allergens - Hemp has something great to offer everyone. “
