Unlike some of the other guys out there, Planet Based Foods is not trying to mimic meat. We’re more interested in evolving rather than recreating something from the past, which is why we proudly embrace hemp as the plant-based superfood that it is. You should know: Also, we’re here for everyone – not just the strict vegetarians and vegans. In fact, we’re thrilled to know that meat-eaters enjoy our food not because it’s a different version of something they already love, but because it’s hemp and it’s delicious and super satisfying. All on its own.
Our mission is to validate hemp as the great-tasting, nutritious, sustainable food source that it is.
We’re Planet Based Foods and we like hemp. Actually, we love hemp. It’s healthy for people because it’s a good alternative source of protein. It’s healthy for the planet because it uses less water to grow, regenerates the soil it’s grown in, and helps filter carbon dioxide out of the air.
Hemp is good for people—and the planet. It’s an all-around real good superfood.
Hemp is widely considered one of the most versatile crops in the world. It requires less water to grow than other traditional crops, regenerates the soil, and is naturally resistant to pests, diseases, and fungi (read: no pesticides needed!), it’s also one of the most sustainable crops. Not only is it a good source of complete protein, hemp is also rich in dietary fiber, B vitamins, manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, and essential fatty acids.

The hemp plant’s taproot can reach underground water reserves, which means it requires less water to grow.
Hemp filters CO2
from our Air
Hemp has been scientifically proven to absorb more CO2 than any other forest or commercial crop.
Not only can hemp grow in a wide variety of soils and climates, but it also thrives in small spaces and has a deep root system that helps hold soil together and reduce erosion. More importantly, hemp produces high quantities of biomass (renewable organic material) that returns to the earth and decomposes, enriching the ground where it’s grown. So, because the soil is cleaner, the crops are healthier and we’re eating better. Here’s to hemp!
