A strong Player opens Doors to the established use of Hemp protein in the Bakery and Food industry

Hemp oil is an unparalleled combination of easily absorbed plant protein, healthy oils, and the fiber our bodies need. For bakeries, hemp offers a versatile new source of protein to increase the protein content in baked goods.

Leipurin Oyj, supplying raw materials and expert services to the bakery, food, and food service markets in six countries, and FoodFarm, have entered into a cooperation agreement. This partnership enriches Leipurin’s product range for its customers with hemp raw materials. The focus of the cooperation is on complementing the plant protein palette with hemp protein. In addition, Leipurin’s selection will include hemp seeds as whole, dehulled, and roasted in the future.

For Leipurin Oyj, hemp offers a versatile new source of protein, for example, to increase the protein content in both savory and sweet baked goods. So far, the sources of proteins in baked goods have mainly been wheat gluten, seeds, as well as curd and cheese. Among plant proteins, hemp’s marketing advantages according to Leipurin include its good amino acid composition, allergen-free nature, and the good taste of new hemp proteins. Hemp seeds also contain a lot of fiber and are an excellent source of healthy fats. The cooperation with FoodFarm brings benefits to Leipurin’s customers not only in Finland but also in Sweden and the Baltic countries.

For FoodFarm, the cooperation with Leipurin offers an efficient marketing channel, especially towards the bakery industry. A well-known player, ease of orders, and improved delivery logistics open the doors to the established use of hemp protein and other hemp raw materials in the bakery sector. Leipurin’s concept as a provider of expert services lowers the threshold for trying hemp seeds and hemp protein. Leipurin is currently developing hemp recipes, after which the best ones will be sent out for customer trials.
