“This seed has been under the potato basket for the last 80 years,”​ Rosen told FoodNavigator-USA. But, he added, “there is so much value and versatility in hemp seed”​ for players up and down the supply chain.

He explained at IFT19 in New Orleans earlier this month that when he first started working with farmers in Kentucky to grow industrial hemp, he had no idea how much the seed could offer. But after working with the plant, farmers and food technologists for the past five years, he discovered that hemp seeds are not only a valuable whole food ingredient, but that the byproducts also offer much-needed protein and oil solutions.

The company got its start dehulling hemp seeds to sell to sell at farmers’ markets before quickly scaling up to fill shelves at Whole Foods Market and Kroger, Rosen said.

As it did that, the team “quickly realized that we had a lot of byproduct, and we had to figure out what we would do with the byproducts because the name of the game in agriculture is finding value in all parts of the plant.”

A little research revealed that the broken bits of the hearts from the dehulling process were a “great feedstock for hemp protein, a hemp protein concentrate, a hemp protein isolate, a textured protein”​ and so on – all of which “have really good applications in the food world,”​ Rosen said.

To help manufacturers tap into that potential, Victory Hemp Foods at IFT unveiled V-70 Hemp Protein, a white hemp protein that contains all nine essential amino acids, is high in Edestin, has at least 25% of the recommended daily amount of iron, magnesium and zinc per ounce and has 12% fat that is high in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.

CBD and THC are not the only buzz-worthy ingredients derived from hemp, according to Chad Rosen, founder of Victory Hemp Foods, who touts the plant’s seeds, which are packed with high quality protein and healthy fats, as an equally important “profit center” for farmers and source of value-added ingredients for manufacturers.
