Home / Pea protein benefits

Field peas are by nature higher in protein (>20%) than sweet peas (5-6%) - making them a more beneficial (and less wasteful) source for harvesting protein.

Protein isolate obtained from peas is containing 85% of protein and is particularly rich in essential branched-chain amino acids that are known to play an important role in muscle protein synthesis.

Various types of studies have demonstrated the role of peas and their constituents in maintaining metabolic, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal health in humans.
