Our organic pea protein powder has a minimum protein content of 80%, and contains all eight of the essential amino acids. Essential amino acids cannot be made within the body and must be provided from our food.
Pea protein is gaining in popularity because of it is richness in branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) – protein compounds that have been shown to delay fatigue during exercise. This is exciting, because the amount of BCAAs in pea protein comes close to those found in milk and eggs, but is less likely to cause allergic reactions or intolerances, compared to protein powders derived from egg, soy or milk.
Pea protein also contains arginine, an amino acid shown to enhance immunity. The lysine content in peas helps the body absorb calcium and decreases the amount of calcium lost in urine, thus helping to maintain strong bones.
This protein powder is so amazing for three reasons: firstly because isolated pea protein can be very easily digested, secondly because of its essential amino acid content and finally because of its ability to supply essential amino acids in the amounts that you need.
In a nutshell:
This easy tasting, amino acid boosting packs a real punch.
Pea protein works well in a smoothie with our fruit and cocoa powders, and blends into a wide range of cooking and baking. Try adding a tablespoon or two of pea protein to soups and casseroles to provide a hidden protein boost.
