Pea protein is exceptionally nutritious and is gluten free, lactose free, dairy free and cholesterol free.
Most commercially available protein powders are derived from soy, rice, eggs, or dairy, which can be problematic for those with allergy or dietary concerns. We chose pea protein because it is plant-based, hypoallergenic, and easy to digest.
Our raw pea protein isolate uses fresh peas, and through a unique extraction leaving the pea raw with no heat used during the process. This particular pea protein is concentrated into 86% protein content (in contrast, usually the commercial grade pea protein is 6% protein content). This pea protein isolate is highly soluble, easy to digest and is an excellent choice for any diet (including vegetarian, vegan and raw vegan).
Raw pea protein isolate contains over 5 times the amount of Arginine compared to whey protein isolate. Arginine, or L-arginine, is an amino acid that is needed to keep liver, skin, joints and muscles healthy. Arginine is found in the skin, and this amino acid plays a key role in the health of all the body's connective tissues, particularly the muscles. Arginine helps the body process both creatine, a natural substance that helps build muscle mass, and nitrogen, a chemical needed for muscle metabolism.
