Did you know that peas are a source of highly bioavailable vegetable protein that’s easy to digest?
It’s true. In fact, studies show that 90 to 95% of the protein from peas is digested, which means pea protein users get an excellent return on their protein investment.
Another benefit is that peas are not a genetically modified crop and they’re not considered one of the major allergens, making them an extremely safe source of protein. Peas are also environmentally friendly, highly sustainable and affordable.
Pea protein is an ideal source of protein for active individuals who can’t tolerate or have difficulty supplementing with other forms of protein. The amino acid content of pea protein makes it an ideal source of protein when compared to the ideal protein intake recommended by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The branched chain amino acid content (leucine, isoleucine and valine) is comparable to that of many animal proteins.
