Pea Protein powder is a natural vegetable based protein powder derived from peas (Pisum sativum).
This is more than just another standard pea protein powder!
PEA Protein PLUS is a blend of vegetable protein sourced from garden (sugar snap) peas which have been extracted and purified. The protein is concentrated from the normal level of 6% in fresh peas, to around 80%!
What's more, this hypoallergenic shake has been fortified with the addition of 9 herbs and superfoods (including baobab fruit - very high in Vitamin C), making it a complete, high protein powder blend with the addition of nutrient-dense herbal antioxidants.
Garden peas are used extensively in food preparation such as in soups & purees. Most commercially available protein powders are derived from dairy, soy, rice or eggs. This may cause digestive system problems for those people with allergic dietary concerns.
Pea Protein because it is a plant-based, hypoallergenic protein that yields a high biological value (BV) of around 65%.
The BV is an accurate indicator of the biological activity of protein. It measures the actual amount of protein deposited per gram of protein absorbed. High BV proteins are a better choice for increased nitrogen retention, enhanced immunity and IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor stimulation). They are superior for reducing lean tissue loss from various wasting states than proteins with a low BV score.
Our Pea Protein is concentrated from the normal level of 6% in fresh peas to around 80% protein content (without the included green superfoods blend).
