Hemp Protein Vs Whey Protein

There are many types of protein powders which are derived from different sources. Two popular types of protein powder are whey protein and hemp protein. So what are the difference between these two types?

Hemp Protein

Hemp protein powder is a plant-based protein and is derived from hemp seeds. Hemp protein contains all of the essential amino acid that the body needs. It also contains the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Other nutrients found in this supplement are iron, calcium, and carbohydrates. Many people mix the hemp protein powder in their smoothies, shakes, milk, and other drinks.

Whey Protein

Whey protein powder is derived from cow's milk. The two types of protein in milk are whey and casein. The whey is separated from the casein during the cheese making process. It contains both the essential and non essential amino acids. Other nutrients include lactose, carbohydrates, fats, iron, and calcium. Whey protein shakes are popular among the fitness and bodybuilding crowd.

Which is for you?

People who are lactoce intolerant have a hard time digesting whey protein since it contains lactose. Whey protein isolate is a higher quality which may be more tolerated since it contains less lactose. If you prefer a plant base diet, then go with hemp protein powder.

You should also take into considering the price and flavors. There are many brands that create these type of protein powders. Also pick a flavor which you like best.
