Organic PurePea™ is an organic pea protein isolate ideal for providing a convenient and highly digestible
protein for those who follow vegetarian or vegan diets, or who have allergies or sensitivities to other proteins, such as whey, casein, soy, or egg.
Organic PurePea™ is a true vegan protein source with high bioavailability. The yellow peas used in
this product are certified organic, non-GMO, grown in North America, and are produced via a natural
fermentation process that uses no chemical solvents.
Each 30-gram serving (approx. 2 scoops) provides 20 grams of protein with just 2 grams of carbohydrate,
making Organic PurePea™ a perfect protein supplement for those who may benefit from increased dietary
protein but who prefer to keep sugar and starch intake to a minimum. This product contains no sucrose,
fructose, or artificial flavors or sweeteners. It’s flavored with certified organic stevia leaf extract and organic
Amino Acid Profile
Vegetarian sources of protein sometimes lack a full complement of the essential amino acids—the amino
acids the body doesn’t synthesize, and which we must get from our diet. Organic PurePea™ has an excellent
array of amino acids, including high levels of BCAAs (the branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine), which help support maintenance of muscle mass and repair and recovery after resistance training.
While its amino acid profile is similar to whey protein, pea protein is particularly high in arginine, lysine, and phenylalanine. Its well-balanced profile fulfills the essential amino acid requirements outlined by the World Health Organization for adults.
Organic PurePea™ has excellent digestibility. This is a distinct advantage over other vegetarian protein sources, particularly soy, which contains naturally occurring compounds called “anti-nutrients,” which interfere with healthy digestion and may cause digestive upset in some people. Soy protein and some other legumes also contain naturally occurring compounds that mimic the effects of estrogen in the body. The yellow peas in this product have low levels of these phytosteroids and isoflavones, thus minimizing the possible estrogenic effects.
