Nutiva Founder and CEO, John W. Roulac at a convention booth is interviewed by Mike Adams of newstarget.com about Nutiva’s new line of hemp shakes. John is also the author of four books on home composting and industrial hemp. His best-selling book, Backyard Composting sold over a million copies worldwide.
Nutiva just launched a line of certified organic and fair trade hemp shakes. They have 3 flavors to choose from. Chocolate, Berry Pomegranate and Amazon Acai. Each one is packed with super foods and anti-oxidants like acai, maca, brazil nuts, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries, pomegranates, goji berries, chocolate, and obviously hemp. The Amazon Acai shake is sugar free, and the other two only contain 6g of sugar from organic unrefined cane juice. A tasty and healthy alternative to high sugar and over-processed and refined protein and nutritional shakes. http://nutivahempshake.com
Nutiva has been pioneering hemp foods since 1999. When the DEA recently tried to ban hemp foods, Nutiva along with Dr. Bronner and Ruth Hemp Foods sued the DEA and won the lawsuit. Hemp foods are now legal in the United States and sales are growing at 50% a year. More and more people are learning about the wonderful health benefits of eating hemp. Hemp is loaded with quality and easily digestible protein that is a complete protein with a good balance of all the essential amino acids. It is also the most balanced source of Essential Fatty Acids, EFA’s. A lot of people are not aware of how high the levels of GLA is in hemp oil and hemp seeds. It varies slightly by each brand, but Nutiva’s hemp oil has 500 mg of GLA per TB. As much or more then blends with Evening Primrose or Borage. It also has 1.7 g of Omega 9 (Oleic Acid), 8 g of Linoleic Acid, 7 g of Omega 6, 2.5 g of Omega 3 and .25 g of SDA which is unique to hemp.
According to their website, the Amazon ingredients like acai, chocolate, brazil nuts and ramon nuts help protect the rainforest and ecosystem buy providing cash crops and extra income for indigenous peoples living there. They also donate 1% of their gross sales to groups promoting sustainable agriculture.
