Hemp Protein Powder Giveaway from Tropical Traditions


Hemp Protein. Hmmm….sounds interesting. What is it?

It’s actually pretty cool stuff, and since it’s from Tropical Traditions (my favorite source for Coconut Oil), we know it is the highest quality. Here’s how Tropical Traditions describes it:

Tropical Traditions hemp protein contains 18 key amino acids, including 9 essential amino acids our bodies cannot produce. Hemp protein is free of the trypsin inhibitors which block protein absorption and free of the oligosaccharides found in soy.

Approximately 65% of the protein in hemp seeds is made up of the globulin protein edestin which is found only in hemp seeds. The other one third of the hemp seed protein is albumin, a high quality globulin protein similar to that found in egg whites.

The oil contained in the hemp seed is made up of essential fatty acids, fatty acids that our body cannot produce and must be supplied through our diet. The oil of the hemp seed has been dubbed “nature’s most perfectly balanced oil” due to the fact that it contains the perfectly balanced 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 (linoleic/LA) to Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic/LNA) essential fatty acids, determined to be the optimum requirement for long-term healthy human nutrition.

Hemp seeds provide a good supply of antioxidants (vitamin E), phytosterols, phospholipids and a number of minerals including calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, along with modest amounts of iron and zinc.

If you know me very well, you know that I am a protein needy girl. I need plenty of protein every day – I always have. Recently, I had to be on a liquid and soft food diet because of a tooth extraction. (Fun times.)  This made it difficult to get enough protein for a few days, and I was feeling it! Hemp Protein shakes to the rescue!


I simply added Hemp Protein to Chocolate Milk Shakes and Smoothies. Easy!

So, how does it taste? I find it to be rather tasteless – which is great in my opinion! My chocolate milkshakes still taste like chocolate milkshakes. Smoothies taste like fruit. The hemp protein just adds nutrients of all kinds, but doesn’t change the flavor of my food. Perfect!

  1. Jennifer says

    I make a smoothie every morning and would love to increase the protein in it, as I’m often drinking it after running. I’d love to try this from TT. Thanks!


  2. Nadene says

    I have a son who so needs extra protein. This sounds like a perfect product for him! Thanks for the chance to win some.


  3. Debbi says

    I’ve been wondering, lately, how hemp protein compares to whey, good timing on your post. I’d love to try some!


  4. Natasha says

    I am a muscly girl. I also require a lot of protein. Whey protein and soy protein are out of the question because of intolerance. I look forward to trying this.


  5. Rebecca says

    BE careful if you work in places that require regular drug testing for employment, like hospitals. If you are sensitive to it, eating hemp on a regular basis can cause you to pop positive on urine tests. It usually is only a problem if you have surprise random testing and eat hemp most days, as it can take a while to leave the body completely.


  6. Marsha says

    Would love to try! I just received my first bag of hemp seeds and can’t wait to try those too :)Thanks for the awesome giveaway


  7. Dorraine Coulter says

    I have been wanting to try Hemp powder, I am new to drinking shakes and juicing and this would be a great add in.




  8. Rebecca says

    I’d love to try this. My husband drinks a protein shake almost every day, but I don’t think he’s had hemp


  9. C Webb says

    I’m protein needy too and always looking for new sources. This sounds interesting.

    By they way, thanks for the gifts in a jar book. It was a nice gift.


  10. Mary Luff says

    I would love to try this! I have been using rice protein powder, but there is a bit of flavor to it. I would be nice to find something that doesn’t have an aftertaste. :)


  11. Janette says

    Thanks for posting about this. I’ve never considered “powders” as a real food, but I’m investigating these further and would like to try this.


  12. Brooks says

    What happens when you get too little protein? I am a newbie on this healthy living/eating journey and have started to wonder if I am getting enough!

    I would enjoy trying this out too.


  13. Kim says

    I’ve been hesitant to try protein powders because many of them seem to have soy. I’ve never heard of hemp protein powder, but I’d love to try it. Thanks for the opportunity to win!


  14. Elizabeth B says

    I am new to TT, but loving their coconut oil. Thanks for introducing me to so many “new” products thru your blog, like this hemp protein! Newbie to real food, but so far so good!


  15. Kara Nutt says

    Me! Since having gastric bypass and going gluten free, I have trouble getting enough protein. This would be fantastic!


  16. Marie says

    I just got this from TT and I love it. I think it has a clean earthy taste if that makes sense. I really like how I feel after, seems like I stay fuller and have more energy!


  17. Randi says

    I would love to win! I’ve been wanting to try that for quite a while now, but I’ve been too cheap to risk my money on it.


  18. Joan S says

    Would love to try this! My husband uses protein powder all the time, but I’m not sure we’re buying one of this quality.


  19. Stephanie Arterburn says

    I would so love to win this! I am just starting on my whole foods journey, and this would really help!


  20. Kristy B says

    This would be great to get extra protein into my skinny little girls who would be vegan if they had the chance!


  21. Jordan D says

    I’ve never tried hemp protein, but anything that gives me an excuse to make a shake is a win for me. Thanks for the giveaway!


  22. Lisa K says

    My nursing son has an intolerance to dairy and soy so protein powders are hard to come by. This sounds great!


    Lisa K Reply:

    That would be powders to help me get protein…not something he (directly) eats!


  23. Margaret D says

    My hubby needs extra protein due to an illness. I like what this has in it and what it doesn’t? I may have to buy some.


  24. Jennifer Blaine says

    I could use some protein powder! I am working out and have found that I am not taking in enough protein by my foods.


  25. Leigh says

    I’ve seen a couple recipes that I’d like to try that include a protein powder… I’m typically very wary b/c it doesn’t seem very real-food to me, but this looks promising! I’d love to try it!


  26. Kimberly says

    I would love to add this to my 13 year old son’s fruit smoothies. It is soooooo hard to keep him full. Maybe protein powder would provide staying power!


  27. Laura McA says

    I’ve been trying to find a protein powder that doesn’t have a flavor for my protein needy sons. I’d love to give this a try.


  28. Denise says

    I would love to try this. We have used hemp seeds in smoothies and yogurt but they definitely have taste and texture so this would be a big improvement.


  29. says

    With a houseful of hungry little tummies who never seem to get filled with our morning smoothies, this sounds like a perfect addition! Thank you for the information and the giveaway!


  30. Catherine says

    I am currently on a high protein diet & this would be great to help mix things up. Thanks for the giveaway! :-)


  31. Roxanne says

    Love the pineapple story-lol! Having 3 nearly grown guys and 1 lone girly, we understand that laughter. I also remember many times of needing the diversions at the checkout and other places to keep my children’s eyes steered clear of worldly things they didn’t need to be aware of at their age. It gets nearly impossible by the time they are teens. Thanks for sharing your days, thoughts & family with us. I never skip reading your daily emails. Would love to try the protein powder. My 17 year old son was just asking for some at the same superstore last night.


  32. Bethany says

    This stuff sounds great! I’d love to try some – I know it’s got to be good if it’s from Tropical Traditions :)
    Thank you for the giveaway!


  33. Shelley C says

    Having just been diagnosed with diabetes, I’m seeing recipes that use the protein powders to help stabilize blood sugars. Would love to try this product.


  34. Danyalle says

    Oh that sounds like an answer to prayer. I don’t do whey protein very well, and soy is out of the question form me as well. I would love to try this.
    Thanks for all the info you provide to live healthier.


  35. Susan H. says

    A good friend of mine was just telling me about the nutritional aspects of hemp protein, I’d love to win this.


  36. Meghan V. says

    I’m a busy Mom of 3 young boys I NEED protein (and chocolate!) so I would love to win this and make my own chocolate milk shakes. :)


  37. Lori G. says

    I would love to win this too! I’ve just read about hemp powder and would like to try it. I am boarderline gestational diabeties and need to change my diet more than I have.
    Thanks for the giveaway!


  38. Cindy K says

    Never heard of hemp protein but would love to try it. My husband is a insulin dependent diabetic who has a hard time controlling his blood sugars. Perhaps this would help. Thanks.


  39. Lisa M says

    My husband is very protien needy, too! I have never tried hemp powder but I’m sure he would be all for it! Especially if I mention putting it in a fruit smoothie!


  40. says

    I have started a new exercise routine and am adding homemade protein shakes as part of my food intake.. so this would be a great addition! :) Thanks!


  41. elizabeth says

    We make smoothies all the time and I have always wanted to add protein but never have it on hand…we live 30 min from the grocery store so I can’t just run and grab some when I think about it. But if I have one in my cabinet it would make it a lot easier!


  42. Edith says

    Sounds interesting. Have tried other Tropical Traditions products and been pleased with them. Am looking forward to trying this, especially since the family just started juicing, and this sounds like a great additive for smootheis and juices.


  43. Suzanne says

    Would love to try this! We put protein powder in our smoothies daily & I’m always looking for good ones. I’m vegan & my family is vegetarian so this one is perfect!
    I love tt oil- & once I ordered 4 jars & they were cracked when they arrived- they were phenomenal w customer service & immediately reaced the jars no questions asked!


  44. Tina says

    I have a teenager who doesn’t eat meat, but loves chocolate milkshakes. I’d love to sneak some protein in…. :-)


  45. Robin says

    We don’t do soy, so a hemp protein powder would be great to try. Our 13 year old daughter needs protein – she is small for her age, and doesn’t eat much at a time, so protein packed meals are a must!


  46. Mary says

    Would love this! We used protein powders until I realized how bad the generic ones are for us…and we drink smoothies all the time.


  47. says

    I love protein powders too!! Esp since I don’t seem to ever get enough of dinner with all my little mouths to feed! :) (4 plus one on the way! :)) Hope I win! yippee :)


  48. Christina D says

    Would love to win this! I’ve used the Nutiva Hemp Protein before, but never Tropical Traditions. I’d love to try it!


  49. Melissa says

    I’ve been wanting to try hemp protein but have read that it isn’t absorbed / digested as well as whey or casein. Were trying to get away from the highly processed protein powders so there’s probably a trade off.


  50. Lisa Cernik says

    Wow, I was JUST looking at this stuff on another website, wondering what it was all about!
    Thanks for the chance to win it!


  51. says

    My husband just started buying some no-name brand sold at our local market. It’s not like our family to start buying something like that without researching healthier options! When I shared this mornings blog with him, he replied back, “Buy some of that today honey!” He had done some quick research to compare the dairy-based protein mix he was currently using (and guess who is lactose intolerant?!) with the Tropical Traditions Hemp Protein Powder and he was stunned at the difference! We would LOVE a sample!! :)


  52. Susan says

    Would love to win this. Fighting fibromyalgia, arthritis and severe anemia (actually having Iron transfusions), plus have a metabolic disorder (Mitochondrial – which most know is all at cellular level and the powerhouse of the cell that turns food into energy)…..we all could use more energy to keep up with kids.

    Need to get as much protein and vitamins as possible. Would love to win, as would everyone else I am sure. Someone will be blessed when they get this. Thanks for the giveaway Laura and Tropical Traditions.



  53. Kelly says

    I’ve heard much about the health benefits of hemp and would love to try it, especially since its “flavorless”!


  54. Sheila says

    I tend to have a need for protein too and like to switch them up so I can get more variations of nutrients. Great idea to add to cookies/bars. I’m going to have to try that! : )


  55. Deanna says

    My husband and I were just talking about trying this powder. I would be great to win this. Thanks for the chance to win.


  56. Amanda Yoder says

    I love tropical traditions! I have never really known about hemp protein, but I do need a lot of healthy protein for my body also, and would love to try this!!


  57. charity says

    I would love to win this! My husband is allergic to whey and he really needs something with the amount of working out he does!


  58. Karen says

    I would love to win this and try it!

    I do have a question though. I didn’t see it mentioned in the information above, and have not yet found it on TT website…are these hemp seeds from a LOW or NON-THC producing plant?


  59. Jessica Wilson says

    Hemp protein is great if you’re expectin or training for an endurance event or you’re allergic to other types of protein or you just need more protein in your diet. I have used it for all those reason and swear by it. I would like to try this brand since you gave it such rave reviews. Thanks for your informative blog. I enjoy it!


  60. Sandy says

    I would like to try this protein. Being highly allergic to dairy & wheat, I’m not very succesful at adding protein to my drinks, and after workouts. I’ve tried their goat milk protein and had adverse reactions too. Thanks!


  61. Kelly Love says

    I would love to win this. I have been trying to find a protein powder without whey since I am allergic to it. Really hope I win!!!


  62. Julie says

    I would really like to try this. I think this would help me a lot. I think I am someone who needs a lot of protein as well.


  63. Rae Cicelske says

    having health issues that cause my body not to absorb protein and nutrients well, I am always looking for ways to get more protein in my diet. Thanks for the opportunity to win this


  64. Monique B. says

    Thanks for the giveaway to try this! I might not order this if I saw it on the TT website, even though I love TT! Thanks for letting us try it! :-)


  65. Jillian says

    As a vegan college girl who teaches spin AND is trying to build muscle, I need all the calories and protein I can get! Plus protein powder is wicked expensive! Thanks for the giveaway


  66. Kari says

    My 13 year old daughter introduced me to your site. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to trying more of your recipes. In the last week, we have made kefir twice. We used the kefir in smoothies. It would be wonderful to win the protein powder and be able to try it in the smoothies each morning.
    May God bless you.
    Thank you.
    MOMYS to 12, 13 & under


  67. Tara Robinson says

    I have read about hemp protein powder before and have been wanting to try adding some to the smoothies of my very picky eater.


  68. Natasha says

    This sounds great! My husband and I are starting our day with protein shakes and looking for a good powder…haven’t found a great one yet.
