Is Hemp Protein Powder Low Histamine?

Yes, hemp protein powder is low histamine. However, with protein powder it’s important to take a close look at the ingredients and make sure it’s from from any dairy, sweeteners, flavorings, or other chemicals; it should be only the protein powder. Hemp is rich in potassium, magnesium, and iron, as well as being what is considered a complete protein, meaning that it has each of the 9 essential amino acids. However it is generally very low in the amino acid lysine, so to balance out the protein in hemp, try to add in foods like lentils and pumpkin seeds. While people generally tolerate hemp well, if you’ve had a reaction to any other nut or seed in the past, be careful when trying hemp protein powder.
