3. Pea Protein Isolate
Pea protein is one of the most sustainably produced protein powders you can find. It requires less land and water to produce, and also results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to animal-based proteins. What’s more, pea is a nitrogen fixing crop meaning, unlike many other crops, it can use nitrogen in the air to produce proteins. This means pea crops don’t need to be sprayed with nitrogen-based fertilisers which minimises their impact on surrounding ecosystems and biodiversity.
Our Pea Protein Isolate is a smooth-mixing powder that is a great way for increasing daily protein intake. It can be added into smoothies, shakes, porridge and even baking.
