Is it necessary to purchase the organic and/or listed as gluten-free versions (Oat Bran, buckwheat, etc).
Trying to purchase some and want to make sure I get the right one. Thanks!February 28, 2013 at 1:15 am #98817
Organic is nearly always better, but I buy the gluten-free kind, which is not organic, I believe. My gluten allergy is so sensitive that I can’t mess around :p If you don’t have celiac or a gluten sensitivity, you can probably buy the organic one, which I think is actually cheaper than the GF stuff.February 28, 2013 at 1:47 am #98819
Thanks Shay, I agree. I clicked on the links from the strict diet protocol and it lead to Bob’s on Amazon that didn’t specify gluten-free or organic, so I wasn’t sure.
Is Bob’s Red Mill Hemp Protein Powder acceptable? http://www.iherb.com/Bob-s-Red-Mill-Hemp-Protein-Powder-16-oz-453-g/29630February 28, 2013 at 1:51 am #98820
That should be fine. Able recommends hemp on the strict diet list. I’ve been using a hemp protein powder, but it’s not Bob’s Red Mill brand.February 28, 2013 at 1:58 am #98821
Great, thank you for the replies. What do you put the hemp protein powder in? I’m thinking maybe my yogurt and hot cereals… trying to stock up while I can 😉February 28, 2013 at 3:10 am #98837
That’s essentially what I do…kefir and hot cereal, mostly. I added it to alexalgebra’s garlic herb biscuit recipe, too.March 1, 2013 at 7:42 am #99022
I think it’s SO GOOD in hot cereal! I love it! It makes it heartier, in my opinion. Plus, I just love the taste of hemp.March 3, 2013 at 3:10 am #99216

What brand/kind do you use for this? I have researched a few and basically came up with manitoba harvest or nutivea, but wanted to see what others use. Thanks 🙂March 3, 2013 at 3:34 am #99219
I’ve been using Manitoba Harvest, though I have no idea how it compares to any other brand (it’s the only one I’ve tried).March 3, 2013 at 9:16 am #99250
I also use Manitoba Harvest…it’s the cheapest I could fine.March 18, 2013 at 7:21 pm #101002

I have been wondering the same thing. The link in the strict diet seems to point to non-organic products. I can’t even find organic ground hemp seed, if it exists. =(
Are Bob’s products organic by default perhaps?March 18, 2013 at 7:23 pm #101004
Bob’s are not organic by default. I had to choose between certified gluten-free oat bran and organic oat bran, since I have a sensitive gluten allergy. It would be ideal if they started making a gluten-free organic one, but that hasn’t happened yet.March 20, 2013 at 4:30 am #101181
I’m pretty sure my hempseed is organic…I have Nutiva this week.
