What is Pea Protein?
Pea Protein is the natural plant-based protein derived through drying of yellow split peas and then grinding them into flour-like powder containing protein, starch, and fiber. The powder then passes through water-based isolation to separate the fiber and starch. After wet-filtration and centrifugation, the protein is precipitated and finally dry sprayed to leave high concentrated Pea Protein Isolate. Pea Protein is dairy-free, lactose-free, gluten-free, soy-free, contains fewer carbohydrates, and is naturally cholesterol and fat-free. Pea Protein has high protein content per serving, has a well-balanced amino acid profile, has good solubility in water, displays good texture, and exhibits a low incidence of allergy. The natural protein supplement is the most appealing protein for vegans and vegetarians, it assists in muscle growth, muscle recovery, and weight loss.
