What our customers say...

So, so fresh! Creamy with a very delicate crunch. We use them a top everything, make hemp milk and sauces, and eat them straight from the spoon!

I love using hemp seeds, they are such an easy way to get an extra protein and boost of essential fats into daily meals especially on a plant based diet. You really can’t go wrong with them!

What our customers say...

I find the Gold Seed oil to be light and a softer taste to the palate. Using over a fruit based type of a salad, I find it adds a new dimension to the meal.


I have osteoarthritis in hip and knee and on a long waiting list of a hip and knee replacement. NO more painkillers needed now. This has helped better than ANYTHING else with inflammation and pain. Mostly I walk even without a limp since taking hemp seed oil... it works for ME!


Great product. I take a tablespoon every day and also use it as a skin moisturiser. I also make my own soap with it and add it to my dogs food every day

What our customers say...

I am loving the Hemp Gold Protein in so many ways. It dissolves really well, mixing easily into my porridge, soups, sauces and smoothies. I like how the powder thickens the texture slightly which is great and it has such a smooth subtle flavour that complements other ingredients. As far are sustained energy from using this product, I find it amazing. It sits so well in my digestive system and I can definitely feel the benefits of the extra boost of quality plant-based protein in my everyday vitality.


by far my favorite protein power I’ve tried. Cheaper than fitness market protein powders, clear and the same protein profile per weight AND naturally occurring amino acids. All other protein powers cause me to bloat, this one doesn’t. Sticking with this from now!


Love this stuff, I’ve never liked the idea and much less the taste of any protein powders but I can’t get enough of this. Love this it takes like a normal food, slightly nutty and very similar to sesame I think. It is very fine grain so very easy to mix with water or milk, and makes a delicious paste/yogurt like texture. Wish more people knew about this
