Sebastopol, CA – On September 7, 2003, New Hope Media announced that Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein Powder is the winner of the New Product Showcase Award in the supplements category. The industry’s largest trade event with more than 4,000 booths, Natural Product Expo East was hosted by New Hope Media in Washington DC on September 5-7, 2003. Nutiva’s New Product Showcase Award is based on voting by the many natural product retailers attending the show and outperformed more than 300 other products vying for the prize.
“This is the first time a hemp supplement or food has ever won an award in the US, and it is another sign that hemp nutrition is gaining strong market acceptance,” says Nutiva founder and president John W. Roulac. Nutiva’s Organic Hemp Protein Powder is a whole food supplement containing 37% protein, 43% fiber, 0% net carbohydrates, 9% beneficial fats (omega-3, -6, and -9 plus GLA), chlorophyll, vitamin E and iron. “We’re very excited about this award and believe that it is just the beginning of new organic hemp-based protein products succeeding in the natural food marketplace,” states Roulac. Based in Northern California, Nutiva makes one of the only protein powders on the market that proudly displays the USDA organic symbol. Hemp’s superior 66% edistin and 33% albumin protein structure is the highest in the plant kingdom.
