Louisville, KY — May 28, 2019 — Victory Hemp Foods announces two new highly functional and proprietary hemp ingredients that solve challenges for formulators across a broad range of product applications: V-70™ Hemp Heart Protein and Victory ONE™ Hemp Heart Oil. These two ingredients deliver the nutritional excellence found in hemp while providing neutral flavor and unique formulation characteristics. Hemp seeds provide complete protein, healthy fatty acids, and minerals at uniquely high levels.
V-70™ Hemp Heart Protein is a ground-breaking, neutrally-flavored and white colored hemp protein. With its neutral flavor, it does not require flavor masking agents. The high water binding capacity of V-70™ Hemp Heart Protein also helps new product recipes achieve more with a shorter ingredient list.
V-70™ is 70% protein and contains all 9 essential amino acids; it is high in Edestin, the easily digestible primary protein in egg whites. The 12% fat is high in Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. V-70™ also presents at least 25% of RDA for iron, magnesium and zinc per ounce.
“Our team is excited to bring to market our V-70™ Hemp Heart Protein – from personal experience in our home kitchens we know that many of the plant-based products on the market need better flavor & texture and a simpler ingredients list. It is exciting to present these ingredient innovations while creating a new market for hemp seeds for US farmers,” explained Chad Rosen, founder and CEO of Victory Hemp Foods.
Victory ONE™ Hemp Heart Oil is a light-colored, mild and nutty-flavored oil, comparable to the flavor of pine nuts, that has the same fatty acid profile as cold-pressed hemp oil. The light, neutral flavor allows Victory ONE™ to be used in products ranging from ice cream to skincare. Victory ONE™ Hemp Heart Oil offers the ideal ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids of 3:1.
