    PEA PROTEIN Overview Information

    Pea protein is the protein found in peas (Pisum sativum). It contains all of the essential amino acids that the body cannot produce on its own.

    Pea protein is a source of protein that might improve the nutrient content of the diet. Pea protein might also help people feel full for longer after eating.

    People use pea protein for high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, increasing muscle strength, diabetes, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
