Hemp Milk?

May 11th, 2007 by NashVeggie Leave a reply »

Hemp milk, a relatively new product to the store shelves is finding itself in the news a bit in places.   I have read a bit of good information on it, finding it is loaded with calcium and phosphorus (46% and 43% of RDA respectfully), not to mention vitamin B12 (25%).  Hemp, illegal to produce in the US, is grown mainly in Canada and exported.  The biggest supplier of hemp milk is Living Harvest.

I have tried the Original Flavor, it has a slight nutty flavor and not too bad.  As a regular drinker of soy milk I couldn’t say I would use it to replace the soy milk but otherwise it makes a nice change.

Wild Oats does carry it in the shelf-stable milk area.  $3.59 for 32 ounces.

    I find it funny that the USDA finds Hemp totally off-limits although it contains zero THC and would be a huge source of export money if we did supply it.
