Chad Rosen, Victory Hemp Foods’ Founder and CEO, is humbled to be the selected recipient among an elite group of hemp industry innovators. Rosen stated, “The Victory Hemp team is honored to receive this award. This award is the outcome of three years of work by many hands and minds with a singular focus -- to develop a unique process to unlock the value of the amazing proteins and oils found in the hemp seed by bringing it to market in a format that works across multiple food categories as a food ingredient. As the agriculture industry tries to answer the question of how it will feed the world's growing population in a way that benefits soil, water, and air as well as the health of our planet's inhabitants, our innovation allows hemp to participate in that solution.”
Victory Hemp Foods (Victory Hemp) has developed two new proprietary ingredients, V-70TM Hemp Heart Protein and V-ONETM Hemp Heart Oil, made from the hemp heart (or shelled seed). These new ingredients deliver the nutritional excellence found in hemp while providing neutral flavor and color and unique formulation characteristics, dramatically expanding the range of products in which hemp seeds can be used as ingredients. Hemp seeds provide complete protein, healthy fatty acids, and minerals at uniquely high levels.
V-70TM Hemp Heart Protein has a neutral flavor, so it does not require masking agents. It offers a high water binding capacity, attractive texture (no grittiness), and delivers a ratio of 70% protein (containing all 9 essential amino acids), 25% fiber, and 5% fat (high in Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids). Food and beverage formulators can use V-70TM Hemp Heart Protein in dairy and meat analogs, nutrition drink powders, and more.
V-ONETM Hemp Heart Oil is a light-colored, mild and nutty-flavored oil. The light, neutral flavor allows V-ONETM to be used in products ranging from ice cream to skincare. V-ONETM Hemp Heart Oil offers the ideal ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids of 3:1.
