Good Hemp Milk Review

Hey everyone,

It’s been one thing after another recently and my grandmother is currently in hospital so I’ve been preoccupied and haven’t really felt like writing but I’m putting this little post up today because I want to keep on track with my blog.

Today I’m reviewing Good Hemp’s alternative to milk.

This milk alternative is made with hemp so it’s not just nut, bean or oat milk. According to Good Hemp, hemp is much more sustainable than other crops, contains important nutrients and is good for the environment. Hemp captures high quantities of carbon dioxide, doesn’t need pesticides and naturally regenerates the soil in which it is grown. On top of all that all parts of the plant are used, the seeds are used in food and the stalks are used for eco-building materials.

Other benefits of hemp is that it is naturally rich in Omega 3& 6, with one 250ml serving of this milk providing 50% of your daily allowance of Omega 3. It’s low in saturated fat, free from GMO and allergens and is dairy, lactose, soya and gluten free. The milk is enriched with calcium and vitamin D2 and is free from artificial sweeteners, colours and preservatives.

The milk has a sort of slight sweet smell to it, but it also smells really fresh. The taste is smooth and definitely fresh, not too far away from rice milk but it doesn’t taste that sweet. It’s also quite a thin milk. My go to milk is a sweetened soya milk so I thought I’d compare them. The hemp milk is thinner, obviously less sweet but it has an overall nicer taste as I find soya overpowering sometimes. I quite like both of them, but for different reasons and I’ll probably keep both in the fridge and alternate. In terms of benefits the soya milk has much more protein than the hemp, but slightly less vitamin and about the same calcium. However, the soya milk doesn’t contain Omega 3&6 so there are reasons to use both. I just thought I’d add that I also really love rice and oat milk but I am yet to grow a liking for nut milks.
Ingredients: Water, Hemp Cream (3%), Grape Juice Extract Concentrate, Tricalcium Phosphate, Emulsifier (Sucrose Ester), Stabiliser (Xanthan Gum), Natural Flavouring (Vanilla), Sea Salt, Vitamin D2.
I paid ยฃ1.50 for the hemp milk in Tesco, and my usual soya from there is 85p.

 

Hope you’ve had a lovely week,

SIG5
