GOOD Hemp: the Eco-Friendly Products That Are Delicious & Nutritious
Although the idea of hemp may bring to mind the marihuana, products made with hemp only use the seeds which contain none of the THC chemical. In fact, cultivating this strain of the plant is very good for the environment and can be used in a number of eco-friendly products.
The GOOD Hemp Food line is made up of a number of products that act as alternatives to dairy, soya or other protein sources. They are especially useful for allergy sufferers, or those on a vegan or vegetarian diet. The range consists of protein powder, cooking oil, milk, salad dressings and shelled hemp seeds.
Analysis and Impact:
Starting as family business on a Devon farm in the UK, GOOD Hemp has only grown very slightly over the years despite its rising success. The products can now be found in most major supermarkets in the UK as well as being available for purchase in health food stores and online.
All the products are high in essential fats, rich in omega 3 and contain high levels of protein. GOOD Hemp Oil has half the amount of saturated fat found in olive oil, typically the healthiest of mainstream oils, and is a good source of omega 6. GOOD Hemp Milk contains half the daily recommended allowance of omega 3 in a single glass and is completely cholesterol free. The Good Hemp Shelled Hemp Seed serves as a healthy snack or accompaniment to cereal, soup or salad.
