Here we are, about 12 years since I first posted about the “new” Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein Powders, and they are still going strong. These days, twelve years is a product shelf-lifetime. But this popular protein powder isn’t showing its age.
Hemp protein is well loved as a plant-based protein with all nine essential amino acids and a good amount of essential fatty acids (2g per serving). It’s also high in iron, magnesium, and zinc.

Not perfect, but they work
In terms of taste, the baseline hemp protein powders are indeed hemp. They have that earthy flair, slight textural notes of grit and powder (though not too off-putting), and are void of any notable sweetness. But they do provide desirable nutrition and blend in quite well to everyday smoothies.
