Benefits of Organic Hemp Milk
Though its name might be a bit misleading, organic hemp milk is a perfectly legal, not to mention healthy, alternative for vegetarians or non-vegetarians. Produced from the seeds of the hemp plant, this milk has only begun to be sold in the United States within the past few years. The seeds or “nuts” are used for making oil, protein powder and now, milk. The seeds, and products made from them, don’t contain any THC delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive component of marijuana.
Hemp milk is said to taste more creamy and nutty than soy milk or rice milk. And it tends to be a bit thicker than those other products, but you should still avoid any product that uses carrageenan as a thickening agent.
