It seems that Tilray wants to continue to move the cannabis world through its many subsidiaries, which have recently brought all kinds of innovations and projects to improve the development of the industry. Manitoba Harvest has now set about developing new hemp and pea varieties with higher protein content, differential starch content, and a much-improved texture than usual. To achieve this, it has partnered with a consortium of industry leaders through Protein Industries Canada to bring the necessary expertise to its team and deliver the best possible results.
Manitoba will deploy its vast experience in product development, food innovation and formulation to take the functionality and potency of hemp protein to the next level. Once this innovative project is completed, it is expected that hemp protein will be suitable for a much wider range of applications in different types of foods.
“Manitoba Harvest, through its partnership with NRGene, Farmer’s Business Network, and Pulse Genetics, is demonstrating great leadership in the area of hemp ingredient development. The hemp and pea flour blend they are developing through this project will go a long way in meeting the needs of both consumers and food manufacturers,” said Bill Greuel, CEO of Protein Industries Canada.
It is well known that hemp has been with us since prehistoric times for its industrial use and its nutritional and health-promoting properties. Lately, people have wanted to include it in their dietary routines because of its vast health benefits, especially because it has a protective effect against cardiovascular diseases, helps regulate blood sugar, contributes to delay cellular aging, and improves the function of the immune system.
Manitoba Harvest is aware of this and wants people to continue to reap the benefits in a more developed way and to fully exploit the full potency of hemp for better function.
