Special Deal on Organic Hemp Protein in Bulk

#1 Postby Lean and Green » Sat Jan 08, 2011 2:53 am

Mums created the best Hemp Protein around. I have been actively seeking a way to carry the highest quality product. They are creating a new line and offering the older product at a deep discount. I don't have the exact pricing yet however I will be receiving 100lbs of Hemp Protein and it needs to go! It will expire by Jan 2012.

Triple Cold Milled Organic Hemp Protein Powder sourced from finnola http://www.mumsoriginal.com/.

Thankfully R.C. hooked us up with probably one of the most knowledgeable people around for hemp. He works for several different lines and this one is his favorite. This brand is rated at the top in terms of quality.

Vegan Proteins will be the only company carrying this in the states and we'd like to offer a special forum only deal to those who want it. As soon as I can figure out what it will cost, I can spread the word to our community so we can benefit. I'm thinking proceeds can help towards the documentary which is finally moving forward with an estimated final production date to hopefully be around the fall.

I looked at prices and hopefully we can compete or moreover beat Nutiva bulk prices. I have been told that Nutiva is not of good quality and have chosen not to go with them. Mum's will be better and cheaper for us ;)

If anyone can please respond with how many lbs you may want pre order, I can make sure to help out!

What's like, an average price for organic hemp protein powder? I know you're offering a discount once you get it sorted out, I just want to get a rough idea of how much I can afford to order.

This is Heirloom Organic Hemp Protein from a specific high quality farm and definitely one of if not the best out there on the market.

The average price range depends on what type you're getting (Nutiva is not as good, general consensus amongst those in the hemp industry) and how they process. The cheaper brands range from $7-9 per lb. Some places charge more.

We will probably be advertising it on our websitee for $8.00-8.50 per lb depending on qty purchased.

This is a community we hold dear to us and we want to hook you up.

Anyone who is ordering from here will get it for $7 per lb. I believe each pkg is 1.1kg or 2.2lbs. So that would be the min and it's in increments of 2.2lbs etc..

It was shipped from Canada to us today and we are being told it will arrive on or before January 17th.

Looking forward to helping out :mrgreen:

Can you point me to an article or some information that says Nutivia is bad? I currently buy both their organic hemp seeds and powder in bulk and though I've not tried other brands the taste and quality seem good.

Thanks!

kckas, I wouldn't say it is 'bad', only not as good meaning this farm is better and the seed used is of better quality. I am gathering information from a person who has worked in the industry throughout his career for most of the different farms and brands. This is his favorite and he has since weeded out the others. I will get that info and relay it back asap. Would be good to know why, I agree. ;)

D@n@ absolutely, I will let you know as soon as it arrives and have a price per bag, etc. :mrgreen:

Answer: As for info, I am not sure if I sent you the Did you know article for mums, that explains the differences but not with any brand in particular. We have never compared ourselves to other brands just other seed, we just don't want to look like we are calling anyone out.. I would tell your customers that we the only company to use the Finnola seed, which contains 25-30% higher GLA than any other hemp. We have No non organic products at all since our whole farm is a certified organic farm. Article on while Mum's is different than other.

Hope the verbage helps. I just get excited when I can offer something good. :? Anything you use that iraw unprocessed and vegan is of much better quality han most. ;)

Sorry I don't have a reference to where this article is coming from. Got in an email and short on time. I will try to cite it later if need be. Here goes:

Did you Know?
 Hempseed is free of gluten, mold, yeast, nuts and dairy.
 Mum’s Hemp GLA levels are up to 25% higher than other brands.
 Mum’s Hemp is organic, non‐GMO and is low in carbohydrates.
 Hempseed contains the highest source of vegetable protein found on
earth and contains all 20 known amino acids including the 9 essential
amino acids (EAAs) our bodies cannot produce.
 Hemp provides an excellent alternative to Soy as recent research has
identified soy’s harmful effects (for example: most soy is GMO, has a
high content of phytic acid which inhibits absorption of iron; has
phytoestrogens that interfere with thyroid functioning; Chinese
produced soy is often produced with aluminum which is toxic to the
nervous system and kidneys; processing of soy protein results in the
formation of toxic lysinoalanine and highly carcinogenic
nitrosamines…and the studies continue!)
 Hempseed contains omega‐3s and omega‐6s (essential fatty acids
which cannot be made by our body and thus need to be derived from
our foods) with the optimal ratio between 2:1 and 3:1. Many nutritional
studies have investigated the health benefits of essential fatty acids
(EFAs), most of which can be attributed to the anti‐ inflammatory and
lipid lowering properties. EFAs influence the immune system and
regulate mood and cognitive functions. Research also indicates that
omega‐3. consumption can assist in management of health conditions
such as: depression, cancer, lupus and asthma
 Hemp is one of the few foods on earth with an omega 6 EFA called
gama‐lineic‐acid(GLA). GLA is necessary to produce anti‐inflammatory
compounds, and affects pain, blood pressure, fluid balance, blood
clotting, hormone production and function. GLA also inhibits the
production of pro‐inflammatory compounds and allows our cells to
remain fluid. GLA must be consumed as our body does not make it.
Very few foods provide GLA’s and is only found in hemp, borage oil,
blackcurrant oil, evening primrose and mother’s milk.
 Medical research on Hempseed indicates that it: (i) improves
symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, heart disease, eczema,
rheumatoid arthritis, and asthma; (ii) increases the effectiveness of
drugs used to treat breast cancer; and (iii) can reduce weight regain
with major weight loss.
 Hempseed contains several plant enzymes which help reduce
cholesterol levels, as they prevent the uptake of cholesterol into the
blood. Additionally, Hempseed contains 44% fibre, 92% of which is
soluble. Clinical research has shown that soluble fibre lowers
cholesterol levels so this high ratio is very positive.
 Hempseed contains several forms of vitamin E: a known antioxidant.
It also contains many vitamins and minerals, especially substantial
amounts of manganese, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, zinc,
and vitamin B1 and B5.
 Hempseed has Chlorophyll in it which our body can easily transform
into haemoglobin, increasing the flow of oxygen to all parts of the body.
 Hempseed contains several nutrients which are not present in flaxseed
(e.g. GLA and chlorophyll), and it contains more vitamins and minerals
than flaxseed. Additionally, flaxseed contains several anti‐nutrients:
cyanogenic glycosides, vitamin B6 antagonistic factors, lignans, and
cadmium.

Looks like a quality product.... at $7 per lb I'm in. I currently go through about 4-6 lbs of Nutiva a month. I use it for smoothies, as well as for making homemade protein bars.
Let me know when they're in.... Thanks.

It's arrived and up for sale at http://www.veganproteins.com (between $8.00-$9.50 per lb). The shipping cost us double what we had expected. HOWEVER... We are keeping true to our offer for all community members for a period of time @ $7.00 per lb.

You can see our retail posting here.
http://veganproteins.com/vegan-protein-shop/Organic-Heirloom-Hemp-Protein-Powder.html
It comes in 2 kilo bags (4.41lbs). @ vbbf community price ($7 per lb):

2 kilos = $30.87 ($45.87 shipped)
4 kilos = $61.74 ($76.74 shipped)
6 kilos = $92.61 ($107.61 shipped)

(shipping is added in above at $15.00)

A pm is necessary prior to checkout.

Let me know if this will work for you. Hope we can help.

On a future note...
So we got word that due to the flooding this year in Canada as a whole they only havested about 125k kilos and they usually do around 350k. A lot of the wholesalers are now going to China to meet the demand. We have a lock on the highest quality farm out there. Other wholesalers tried to pay 4x what Mum's does to get better quality inventory. The finnola seed farm (only one), stuck with Mum's because they are loyal and like the company. Mum's only deals with us for bulk hemp protein. They may not carry it in the future however we have it for now and will likely have a good product to offer in the future when this runs dry. Just keeping you posted on the excited news for 2011 @ veganproteins ;)

So do we need to enter a special discount code? I haven't tried to order yet, but I was just wondering. Do we just mention in the PM that we're part of VBBF?
