High quality protein PLUS phytonutrients
PeaNourish is a high quality pea protein powder (from snap peas), blended with a range of other foods and herbs for added nutritional value.
This green protein shake mix contains a concentrated level of pea protein, from the 6% found in fresh peas up to around 80%, and is therefore high in protein (19g per serving). It is also low in saturated fat (0.17g per serving), easily digestible (no bloating), hypo-allergenic and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Pea protein is a natural vegetable-source protein, which offers an excellent amino acid profile. It provides: ‘branched chain amino acids’ (leucine, isoleucine and valine); lysine (an essential amino acid); glutamine (involved in protein synthesis); and is richer in arginine than any other commercially available protein.
Peas also contain: - vitamins (including vitamin A, riboflavin, niacin, folate, thiamin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, vitamin B6, vitamin C and vitamin K), minerals (including calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and manganese), and other nutrients (including both soluble and insoluble dietary fibre, lutein (a nonprovitamin A carotenoid), phytonutrients / phytosterols (especially ß-sitosterol) and chlorophyll (a green pigment)). What's more, peas are low in fat, calories, sodium and contain no cholesterol.
Pea protein is valued for its high digestibility (90-95%), low potential for allergic responses and reasonable price. It is particularly popular because it has a sweet taste and a texture which mixes well in liquid solutions.
Unlike many other pea protein powders on the market, PeaNourish contains no hexane, toxic chemicals or added 'nasties', which are often used during the pea protein extraction process. Our pea protein is extracted using only water, pressure and then flocculation.
