Nutiva Debuts Organic Hempseed and Plant Protein Superfood Smoothies

RICHMOND, Calif. — Nutiva, pioneer of plant-based organic superfoods that nurture vitality, is debuting new USA-Grown Organic Hempseed, the first ever USDA Certified Organic hempseed product grown entirely in the United States, and Organic Plant Protein Superfood Smoothies (in Chocolate and Vanilla flavors) at 2018 Natural Products Expo West. Expo West attendees will be among the first to experience the new products and are invited to visit booth #1745 to taste and learn more.

“The launch of our new USA-Grown Organic Hempseed and Organic Plant Protein Superfood Smoothies further establish Nutiva as a pioneer in the industrial hemp and organic superfoods categories,” said John Roulac, founder and chief visionary officer of Nutiva. “We were the first organic hempseed brand on the market and have advocated and battled for industrial hemp for nearly 20 years, so we’re proud to launch our groundbreaking organic shelled hempseed product, the first that’s grown entirely in the United States. Our new USA-Grown Organic Hempseed and new Organic Plant Protein Superfood Smoothies continue our dedication to bring nutrient-dense organic foods like hemp and plant-based protein made without chemicals or GMOs to all Americans, while supporting the U.S. hemp farmers here at home.”

Grown entirely in the U.S., Nutiva USA-Grown Organic Hempseed is USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified and vegan. It also contains 10 grams of protein, three grams of omega-3s, and 500 milligrams of omega GLA, plus 50 percent of the recommended daily value of magnesium and 20 percent of the recommended daily value of iron per serving. USA-Grown Organic Hempseed is the perfect addition to smoothies, hummus, yogurt, pesto, salad dressings and more and a great topping on salads, fruit, soup, oatmeal, cereals and vegetables for a superfood boost.

Nutiva Organic Plant Protein Superfood Smoothies are wholesome and nutrient-dense protein supplements crafted with plant-based, USDA Certified Organic and non-GMO ingredients, including a blend of pea, pumpkin seeds, hemp and sunflower plus superfood ingredients like cinnamon, sea salt, berries, spinach, broccoli, carrot and beet. Each serving delivers 21-22 grams of plant-based protein, one billion CFUs of probiotics to support digestive and immune health and 25 percent daily value intake of 12 key vitamins. The new plant-based supplements are made without stevia, added sugar, artificial flavors, preservatives or chemicals, and are also free of gluten, soy, dairy and grains. In two popular flavors, Chocolate and Vanilla, Organic Plant Protein Superfood Smoothie serves as a unique plant-based, dairy-free protein option for on-the-go nutrition, as pre- and post-workout boost or as a meal replacement for breakfast or dinner.

In addition to these new products, Nutiva will also be showcasing new Organic MCT Oil, Organic Coconut Oil with Butter & Garlic Flavors and Organic MCT Oil Powder at Expo West.
