Recommendations: Mix 2 scoops (or 4 rounded tablespoons) in water daily, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
Mixing Instructions: Place powder into a glass with 2-4 ounces of room temperature water and mix thoroughly with a fork. Once the powder is mixed, add the remaining water to make 8-12 ounces.
If pregnant, consult a physician before taking.

Great-tasting vegetarian protein powder
Organic Pea Protein, an organic, natural pea protein isolate, offers a high level of functionality and nutritional benefits. It is ideal for those who are looking for vegetarian protein or non-dairy protein. Organic Pea Protein is a true vegan protein which has high bioavailability and excellent digestibility. The raw materials, certified organic North American grown yellow peas, are not genetically modified (non-GMO). Organic Pea Protein is extracted from these dry peas via a patented protein technology which uses no chemical solvents.
Amino Acid Profile
Organic Pea Protein has an excellent array of amino acids, including high levels of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine). While its amino acid profile is similar to whey protein, it 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 Pea Protein has excellent digestibility, a distinct advantage over other vegetable protein isolates, as it does not contain the commonly occurring anti-nutritional factors of other legumes (i.e., soy), mainly trypsin inhibitors, phytates, lectins, tannins, and α-galactocides. (The presence of high levels of these anti-nutritional factors can cause substantial reductions in protein digestibility.)
Benefits of Peas
As pea protein has ACE inhibitory activity, it may have a positive effect on the maintenance of normal blood pressure levels.* It has also been shown, in rat studies, to have a positive impact on total cholesterol and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) by stimulating bile acid formation and excretion.*
When compared to soy, the yellow peas used in Organic Pea Protein have low levels of phytosteroids (isoflavones), thus minimizing the possible estrogenic effects.
Organic Pea Protein is a great protein source for athletes and anyone who is physically active. Due to its favorable amino acid profile and high digestibility, it is an excellent choice for consumption before, during, and after exercise. Adequate intake of protein, in particular BCAAs, helps to promote muscle growth and repair, particularly after strenuous resistance training.*
The pea protein in Organic Pea Protein is not a major allergen, and is, therefore, a safe alternative for people with allergies to milk products who must avoid casein or whey proteins, for those with lactose intolerance, and for those with soy allergies.
