We’re Hyped on Hemp, a Powerful Protein From a Small Seed
All of our JOJO’s Chocolate flavors are boosted with hemp protein to give your body some love in the form of an ultra-healthy complete protein. We’re talking 4-6 grams of protein per chocolate bar. And we bet you wouldn’t have guessed it was there unless we told you! We think the nutty flavor of hemp protein blends beautifully with our dark chocolate and other functional ingredients. Here's all the hype on hemp!
The trend (or lifestyle, depending on your perspective) of plant-based eating has changed American food offerings. Everyone from major restaurant chains to grocery stores now offers more and more plant-based food. People might be increasingly open to eating a plant-centric diet, but a lot of them wonder if they’re getting enough protein.
Turns out, some plants actually have quite a bit of protein. Hemp seeds are an excellent example. These tiny seeds pack a big health punch (in fact, they’re widely considered a superfood). Grind them up for a protein powder that gives your body a bunch of what it needs — and very little it doesn’t.
High nutritional value without the high
People might be a little wary of hemp because they know it comes from the cannabis plant. But hemp seeds grow from a different type of cannabis plant than marijauna, meaning they come without any of the mind-altering effects of THC.
While these tiny little seeds won’t affect your cognitive ability, they will impact your overall health. Let’s take a look at the nutritional benefits of hemp seeds.
The scoop on hemp
Whether you sprinkle them on a salad or grind them into a powder to use at will (did you know there’s hemp protein in JOJO’s Chocolate?), hemp seeds deliver:
Clearly, hemp seeds are fairly impressive. You can buy bagfuls of them at your local grocery story to sprinkle over any food you want. Lots of people love their nutty, earthy flavor.
At JOJO’s, we’re all about enjoying the finer things in life guilt-free. By adding hemp protein to our low and no-sugar chocolate, we give you a way to indulge that doesn’t just skip the bad stuff, but actually gives your body what it needs to thrive.
So dig in! You deserve it.
