Pea Protein Powder
There’s a new protein in town - pea protein powder! Recognized as a highly bioavailable protein, our 100% pure, non-GMO pea protein isolate provides the nutrition you need after any workout. Pea protein is ideal for vegans and vegetarians, or anyone looking for a dairy-free and soy-free alternative to traditional protein powders. It’s also packed with high concentrations of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) to fuel your muscles. So step aside, whey! Make room for pea protein.
How to Use Pea Protein
Simply mix one scoop (20 grams) of pea protein with 6-8 ounces of a cold beverage (e.g. water, juice, smoothie, etc.). Protein needs will vary by individual.
Looking for more ways to incorporate pea protein into your diet? Since heat does not destroy pea protein, it can be used in both hot and cold recipes. Add it to pancake mix and baked goods like muffins, energy bars, or healthy protein cookies.
Pea Protein Benefits
1) Excellent Protein Source: Pea protein powder packs a whopping 23 grams of protein per serving. Plus, its amino acid profile is similar to whey protein with high concentrations of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs): leucine, isoleucine and valine. These three amino acids account for up to 35% of muscle tissue and are essential for muscle development. There’s no limit to what you can accomplish when you supplement your workouts with pea protein!
2) High in Iron: One serving of pea protein powder provides over 9 % of the daily recommended value for iron. This mineral is in charge of carrying oxygen-rich blood cells throughout the body. Low levels of iron can cause fatigue, so pea protein can give you a major boost on your way to achieving your daily iron requirements. Keep those energy levels up!
3) Allergy-Friendly: Whey protein oftens gets the spotlight in the world of protein supplements but it’s a major no-no for vegans and anyone who can’t have dairy. Thankfully, you can get a similar quality source of protein with our pea protein powder. It’s perfect for vegans, vegetarians, and anyone who cannot have soy or dairy. Protein is the macronutrient that’s often lacking in plant-based diets, so using a supplement like pea protein is a major help.
4) Easy-To-Digest: Since pea protein does not contain any lactose or gluten, it’s very easy-to-digest and won’t cause the bloating associated with the products that contain those allergens. Now that’s worth writing home about!

I want to say it should taste better but it tastes likes peas, because it is peas lol. So much protein. Such a good value! And the pea flavor is not super strong.Jyllian, Baldwinsville, NY
