(13) Albumin and edestin
are the two main proteins in hemp, providing similar amino acid profiles as egg whites and soy.
About two thirds of hempseed protein is of the edestin
type, which is easily digestible.
Poland and Bloomfield (1929) determined the activity of pepsin by using standard 2% solution of edestin
and were found in the range of 100to 110.
Although small, the nuts are big on nutrition, with up to 35 percent of their makeup being protein, and most of that edestin
, a highly digestible storage protein.
