Pea protein is an excellent source of plant-based protein – offering eight of the essential amino acids that cannot be made within the body and must be provided from our food. Our pea protein is made from organically grown peas and is has a minimum protein content of 80%!
Pea protein is derived from organically grown yellow peas – also known as field or dry peas. Thriving in cool climates, field peas or “Pisum sativum”, are one of the oldest domesticated crops – known to have been first cultivated over 7000 years ago. These protein packed legumes originated in the Mediterranean basin and are now found growing all over the world.
Our organic pea protein is extracted through a double separation process; the pure protein liquid is first centrifuged to selectively separate protein and flash evaporated to obtain protein enriched powder. Pea protein is gluten and allergen free alternative to other proteins such as soy, offering a neutral taste suitable for both sweet and savoury recipes.
