Lamberts® Pea Protein is a highly concentrated protein product sourced from yellow peas. The extraction and purification processes raise the protein content 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. Lamberts® specifically chose peas as the source of protein because the amino acid profile is excellent as it is rich in ‘branch chain amino acids’ (leucine, isoleucine and valine) and is richer in arginine than any other commercially available protein. Pea protein has many uses as it is free from wheat, gluten, dairy products, eggs, soya and animal products. It is unsweetened and has a mild savoury taste making it useful for mixing in to soups and stews. It can also be blended with fruit such as a banana to make a fruit smoothie. Can be used for anyone who is recovering from illness and/or have low appetites. It can also be used by slimmers who might want to boost their intake of protein.
