Linwoods, the UK’s leading producers of healthy super foods, has launched its brand new range of natural plant protein blends. Hemp Protein+ provides a natural source of protein helping fuel the body with essential energy – boosting nutrients and heart-healthy compounds. Launching in outlets across the UK and Ireland, the 360g packs are available to order online from the Linwoods website, Holland and Barrett online, and a number of independent health food stores, priced from £16.99.
The range consists of three nutritious hemp protein blends with added-value ingredients, including the Flaxseed, Chia Seed, Cocoa and Beetroot Powder blend, the Flaxseed, Bio Cultures, Vitamin D and Co-enzyme Q10 blend and the Flaxseed, Chia Seed, Broccoli and Spinach Powder blend. Each variant is a fresh tasting and easy-to-use addition to shakes, smoothies and for sprinkling into yoghurts.
Ideal supplements to the daily diet, the combinations pack a powerful punch and contain an impressive 15g-16g of protein in a 30g serving. Not only are they highly digestible sources and loaded full of protein; they are gluten, dairy and GMO free.
The ingredients in Linwoods Hemp Protein+ range are all natural and have no added sugar, as well as being high in Omega 3 ALA, packed with vitamins, minerals and fibre.
Using a plant-based protein, such as hemp instead of other less natural alternatives has various health benefits. Plant proteins are free from saturated fat, can help maintain muscle mass, prevent blood vessel problems and have the added benefit of being an anti-inflammatory.
Sarah Shimmons, Head of Marketing at Linwoods, explains: “There is an upward trend in hemp protein sales, as consumers who like to eat well choose it over whey, soya or other less healthy protein powder alternatives. Hemp Protein+ is also suitable for gluten free, diary free and vegan diets, so whether it’s used as part of a healthy lifestyle, an exercise regime or to build muscle, our new Hemp Protein+ range is the perfect natural alternative for everyone.”
The Linwoods organic Hemp Protein+ range is available to purchase online at: www.linwoodshealthfoods.com/uk and selected health food stores.
