Peas are one of the most earliest cultivated food crops dating back thousands of years. Organic Pea Protein powder starts off as organically grown white and yellow peas, known as field or dry peas. After harvesting, each batch of peas are cleaned and liquefied, and the pure protein liquid is decanted and then clarified before being dried, sifted and inspected. Providing a high protein content of 80%, the amino acid profile of Organic Pea Protein per 100g is excellent; it is rich in the ‘branched chain amino acids’ (Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine). This product is a perfect choice for anyone who wants to boost their daily protein intake via an easy-to-digest high quality protein.
