We are pleased to launch Pea Protein, which as the name suggests, is a protein product sourced from peas.
By a clever process of extraction and purification the protein is concentrated from the normal level of 6% in fresh peas to 90% in this product!
This unique process produces protein that is highly soluble and therefore easy to digest and absorb.
We specifically chose peas as the source of protein because the amino acid profile is excellent - it is rich in 'branched chain amino acids' (leucine, isoleucine and valine) and is richer in arginine than any other commercially available protein.
Arginine is involved in the immune system response to challenges and also plays a part in weight control.
It also means that it is free from wheat, gluten, dairy products, eggs, soya and animal products.
We think you will find it an invaluable protein product, especially for those clients who are recovering from illness and/or have low appetites.
It is also particularly suitable for sports enthusiasts since muscle mass can only be increased if the diet provides enough protein.
And it can be used as a high protein meal replacement for slimmers.
The powder has a mild, pleasant, slightly savoury taste so it is perfect for adding to soup or sprinkled on cereal.
It can also be blended with fruit such as a banana to make a fruit smoothie.
For helping sports enthusiasts increase muscle mass.
For aiding weight control by helping prevent ‘rebound’ hunger.
For low appetites.
Helping recovery from illness.
