Pea Protein, as the name suggests, is a protein product sourced from peas. By a clever process of extraction and purification the protein is concentrated from the normal level of 6% in fresh peas to 90% in this product! Peas are an excellent source of protein because the amino acid profile is perfect Ð it is rich in Ôbranched chain amino acidsÕ (leucine, isoleucine and valine) and is richer in arginine than any other commercially available protein. Arginine is involved in the immune system response to challenges and also plays a part in weight control. It also means that it is free from wheat, gluten, dairy products, eggs, soya and animal products. It is a very effective protein product, especially for those individuals who are recovering from illness and/or have low appetites. It is also particularly suitable for sports enthusiasts since muscle mass can only be increased if the diet provides enough protein. And it can be used as a high protein meal replacement for slimmers. Lamberts Pea Protein is a highly concentrated protein product sourced from yellow peas. This unique process produces protein that is highly soluble and therefore easy to digest and absorb.
