Hemp Protein Next: EU's Plant-Powered Future

On an ordinary October day in 2023, the European Parliament did something quite extraordinary. They adopted a report with a big name - the "European Protein Strategy."

But what's all the fuss about?

This report shines a light on a critical issue - the EU's heavy reliance on imported soy and other crops for protein. The verdict? The EU should aim for self-reliance, producing its own plant protein for both people and livestock. Sounds promising, right?

So, why's this report so special?

Why Does Protein Matter?

Protein isn't just about our diet; it's about where our protein comes from.

Traditionally, most of the world's dietary protein comes from animals. But here's the issue:

  • Environmental Impact: Animal farming releases greenhouse gases, uses vast amounts of land, and consumes excessive water.
  • Health Concerns: Allergies, intolerances, and cholesterol problems can be tied to animal proteins.
  • Economic Vulnerability: Importing protein makes us susceptible to price fluctuations and changing trade rules.
