(With an unfairly good taste)
When we created Hemp FORCE Cocoa-Maca we set a new industry standard for a simple high-nutritious plant protein with a shockingly delicious flavor. Creating the sequel proved to be no easy task. After over a year in R&D and more than a dozen combinations that didn’t match up, we finally identified the ingredient combination that would be the basis of our new formula. Unwilling to compromise with our commitment to finding the most nutrient dense natural ingredients available, the key was in a combination of mesquite powder and freeze dried açaí berry, a blend of both tart and molasses notes delivered by 100% earth grown ingredients. Adding Chia and Flax seed to the protein and omega rich hemp seed simply enhanced the nutrient potential of this powerful protein superfood.
The sweet notes of creamy vanilla in the Powerfood vitality | Vanilla-Açaí dance best with the strong lead from coffee, tea, and other tart berries. The flavor needs to breathe, so avoid smothering with sweetened milks or dairy milks without diluting the liquid by at least 50% water. The best mix I have found is 50% water and 50% Rice Dream. A single or partial scoop blended in hot coffee or tea, with grass-fed butter or coconut oil makes an outstanding latte that's like sipping on a warm vanilla cloud while being snuggled by a friendly koala bear (or so we hear!). Enjoy, and let us know any great recipes you create!
Hemp is a complete protein (like meat) containing branch chain amino acids and an optimal balance of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, including GMA. 2/3 of the protein is made up of edestrin, a plant protein similar to protein found in the human body. Hemp is easily digested. Hemp is grown naturally and sustainably without the need for pesticides or herbicides.
The native Brazilian açaí berry has been praised for its antioxidant potential and delicious taste. This deep purple superfood is also an excellent source of anthocyanins, a class of flavanoids that stimulate some parts of the immune system.
While it may share the name of your favorite BBQ smoking wood, mesquite powder is actually the powdered seed pod from a plant native to the arid regions of the Americas. Packed with protein and micronutrients this powder has a naturally sweet flavor reminiscent of a nutty molasses. Some of the nutrients found in mesquite include: Lysine, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Iron, Zinc, Dietary Fiber.
Chia has been a staple superfood of the Americas as far back as the Aztec empire, but recently it is made a powerful resurgence. Evidence for this can be found in the most unlikely places, including a Wall Street Journal article that called chia the “The NFL’s Top Secret Seed” (source) This is attributable not only to the clean, simple taste, but also due to the protein, nutrients and especially the healthy fats it provides. One of these healthy fats is Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA) which is widely considered an important nutrient for heart health.
When thinking about the health benefits of flax seeds, there are three important categories that come to mind: Omega 3’s, Lignans, and Mucilage. Omega 3’s are healthy fatty acids, also found in hemp seeds and chia. Mucilage refers to a unique water soluble fiber that is especially helpful for digestion. Lignans have a positive impact on the heart and the hormonal balance.
Vanilla has become such a staple flavor in our dietary palate, it is easy to forget where it comes from. If you haven’t had the pleasure of seeing and smelling a whole vanilla bean, it is a true natural phenomenon. The rich aroma and pleasant flavor of the vanilla offer the subtle notes that provide the backdrop for the flavor symphony of Hemp FORCE Vanill-Açaí.
