Here is the description of hemp milk from Wikipedia:
Hemp milk or Hemp Seed Milk, is a drink made from hemp seeds that are soaked and ground into water, yielding a creamy nutty beverage. It is marketed in health and fitness publications as a "new health food darling".
According to Dr. Andrew Weil, hemp seeds contain no THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive substance found in marijuana but instead, contain a three-to-one ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential fatty acids and other nutrients include magnesium, phytosterols, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, calcium, fiber, iron, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin, niacin and thiamin.
Hemp milk also contains 10 essential amino acids, making it a good vegetarian source of protein as hemp protein does not contain phytates, enzyme inhibitors found in some soy protein that can interfere with the absorption of essential minerals. Hemp protein may also be more digestible than soy protein because unlike soy, it doesn't contain oligosaccharides, complex sugars that can cause flatulence if not properly broken down during digestion.
Dr. Weil also maintains that as far as allergies are concerned, hemp seeds do not pose the threat that tree nuts do and that anyone allergic to soy or dairy should be able to safely consume hemp milk.
The bottom line is that hemp milk is AWESOME! I honestly believe it has contributed to my daughter's advanced learning speed. One of my friends calls it "brain milk". I will be adding a post, comparing some of the alternative milks and the various hemp milk brands, but for now, I just wanted to let everyone know that my personal choice for a non-dairy milk is HEMP MILK!
