What is hemp yogurt?
Hemp yogurt is a gluten-free, nutrient-rich yogurt. It can be produced using hemp milk or hemp seeds.
Hemp milk yogurt provides heart-healthy omega-3 fats, about 8 grams of protein, and many of the essential amino acids. It lacks calcium, is pricey and is harder to find in stores, but makes for a healthy snack.
Hemp seeds as well filled with protein, healthy fatty acids, fiber, vitamin E, minerals such as iron and calcium. So it’s not surprising that they call it a superfood.
With a slightly’ nutty taste’, hemp yogurt provides a lovely flavor and texture when made correctly. You can find it at farmer’s markets, fancy vegan stores, and healthy food sections in expensive supermarkets.
However, this product is far from being mainstream, so it can be challenging to find and cost a lot too. So you might want to consider making it at home. Especially if you are looking out for ideas on how to bring more variety into a keto / vegan diet.
Hemp yogurt nutrition
Hemp seeds are a known superfood and provide many benefits. These include anti-inflammatory properties and support for your brain & heart function.
And again, if we are talking about keto vegan diet, hemp seeds are especially satiating due to their high fiber content.
Therefore hemp yogurt offers a fantastic opportunity to actively promote good health. This yogurt provides anti-inflammation properties and promoting organs’ health too.
Hemp protein in yogurt
Hemp contains all 10 essential amino acids. And it does not contain phytates, which are found in many vegetarian protein sources. Those antinutrients are known to interfere with the absorption of essential minerals.
Compared to flax and chia, for instance, hemp seeds have twice as much protein and are lower in carbohydrates. Perfect.
So you may not only benefit from minerals and vitamins from hemp seeds in your yogurt. It actually makes sense to supercharge your yogurt (or any other snack, if it makes sense) with the scoop of hemp protein powder here and there (I love the one by Navitas).
It has a very smooth texture which makes it perfect for blending into your favorite smoothie or shake.
