Multisport champion and nutritionist, Emily Miazga, has embraced Hemp Nutrition with the creation of her wholesome hemp protein cookies.
Miazga is originally from Saskatchewan, Canada, but has made New Zealand her home. Her company, Em’s Power Cookies, is located on the south island.
Miazga aims to sell her products in both Australia and New Zealand. However, while hemp foods are now legal in Australia, New Zealand still needs to change its legislation to allow hemp for human consumption. This law change is expected to happen before the end of the year.
With a Master of Science in dietetics and nutrition, it’s no wonder Miazga is promoting hemp and all its nutritional benefits.
Hemp is high in protein and fibre, and it’s loaded with vitamins and minerals. Hemp is also also a balanced source of Omega-6 and Omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are important for brain development, immune system function and blood pressure regulation.
