Edestin is 65% of the protein in hemp, with albumin being the second most common protein. Now for some more science: proteins are either structural or globlular. The former go to make up tissues, such as hair and skin, and the latter function as, or as parts of, hemoglobin, hormones, enzymes and antibodies. There are 21 known amino acids, and hemp proteins include all of them, thus hemp contains the 8 essential amino acids: arginine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalnine, threonine, tryptophan and valine; it also includes taurine and histiodine, which are essential for premature babies and children, respectively.
