More about PEA Protein: Peas are well-known for being a rich, low fat source of highly bio-available protein. Pea protein is a natural vegetable-source protein, which also offers an excellent nutritional and amino acid profile:

Amino acid profile

Pea protein is rich in:
  • ‘branched chain amino acids’ (leucine, isoleucine and valine)
  • lysine (an essential amino acid)
  • glutamine (involved in protein synthesis)
  • and is richer in arginine (involved in immune system function and weight control) than any other commercially available protein.
Nutritional profile

Pea are also rich in:
  • vitamins: including vitamin A, riboflavin, niacin, folate, thiamin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, vitamin B6, vitamin C and vitamin K
  • minerals: including calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and manganese
  • and other nutrients: including both soluble and insoluble dietary fibre, lutein (a nonprovitamin A carotenoid), phyto-nutrients / phytosterols (especially ß-sitosterol) and antioxidants.
Peas are also low in fat, calories, sodium and contain no cholesterol. Easy to digest, with no bloating!

Pea protein is a relatively new form of protein supplement, valued for its high digestibility (90-95%), low potential for allergic responses and reasonable price. It is particularly popular because it has a sweet taste and a texture which mixes well in liquid solutions.  It is also useful for mixing into soups and stews. It can also be blended with liquids of your choice, as well as fruit to make a healthy smoothie.

Perfect for:
  • people with food cravings (as provides slow release energy and promotes increased satiety through the combination of protein and dietary fibre content)
  • anyone recovering from illness
  • people with low appetites
  • those with an active lifestyle, with high energy demands
  • vegetarians, vegans and anyone looking to boost their protein intake
  • anyone who wishes to avoid dairy and soya based protein products. Free from gluten, dairy and other animal products, soya and other anti-nutritional factors, this hypoallergenic powder is an ideal source of protein for those with certain food intolerances / food allergies.
