V-70™ Hemp Heart Protein
The best-tasting plant protein comes from the heart.
70% protein sourced from hemp seeds. Inside every hemp seed is a valuable inner core, called the hemp heart. The nutrients within are the proprietary source for our new protein ingredient, V-70 Hemp Heart Protein. You might appreciate the 70% protein complete with all nine essential amino acids and omega-3s, but it is the neutral flavor and near white color that provides you with a significant formulation advantage over other plant proteins. Additionally, in plant-based meats, V-70 has exceptional emulsification & gelling properties for juicier, more authentic meat textures.
Because V-70 hemp heart protein has such a minimal impact on the sensory, it can influence a wide range of applications. While most products will appreciate the 70% protein complete with all nine essential amino acids, it is the neutral flavor and complementary functional attributes that sets this plant protein apart.
- Meat analogues
- Baked goods
- Dairy substitutes
- Sports nutrition
For Juicer, More Authentic Burgers
It is time to inspire vegan, plant-based meats with V-70, our newest ‘hemp heart’ seed protein. V-70 has exceptional emulsification & gelling properties for juicier, more authentic meat textures. Your burgers, meatballs, and nuggets will benefit from the 70% protein complete with all nine essential amino acids. But it is the neutral flavor and complementary functional attributes that sets this plant protein apart. Hemp heart protein is also good for beverages, powders, and snacks, so try a sample of V-70 today.
V-70 hemp heart protein is near white in color and has a neutral flavor. The clean texture presents a smooth mouthfeel with no grittiness.
How did we overcome the sensory issues with traditional hemp seed ingredients? Remove the outer shell – Hemp seed’s outer shell contains a majority of the tannins and chlorophyll, contributing to green color, pungent odor, and bitter notes. The result is a product appropriately called the ‘hemp heart’ or dehulled-center of the hemp seed, and it makes a world of difference on the sensory experience.
V-70 hemp heart protein is complete with all nine essential amino acids. The ingredient contains healthy fats, omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, and at least 25% of RDA for iron, magnesium, and zinc per ounce.

Hemp Hearts vs. Hemp Seeds
Hemp hearts are the dehulled white inner parts of the hemp seed. The hemp hearts are the nutritional powerhouse reserved for sprouting new hemp plants. The removal of the shell presents a much cleaner ingredient that is white, instead of green, and is void of bitter, pungent flavor typically associated with hemp seeds.

The Heart of Plant-Based Meats
No disrespect to the original veggie burgers, but consumers may never settle for dry, spongy patties again… not after trying an Impossible Burger. The bar is set on what is forecasted to be an $85 billion industry by 2030. But while brands are ambitiously looking for ingredients and technologies to improve taste, texture, sustainability, and affordability of plant-based proteins. Perhaps the most impressive innovation is behind the scenes, making plant proteins look and taste like actual meat.
