Manitoba Harvest brand is the better of them, with more protein and fat, less fiber than the crappy Nutiva brand. They might list retailers on their websites.

The cool thing about hemp protein is that it's totally complete, with all amino acids and all essential fatty acids.

Legend has it that when Buddha was denying himself - in a failed attempt to achieve liberation - he survived on only hemp seed, nothing else.
