Is Pea Protein Good For You?

If you are a vegetarian, a vegan or a person who wants to reduce meat consumption or do some sport, you probably keep track of your protein intake.

There are many different types of plant proteins that you can get from various foods. There are wheat, rice, soy, pea proteins, and more. Sometimes it might be unclear which one to choose.

One type of protein that is becoming popular these days is pea protein. It is a relatively new type of plant protein that is gaining popularity in the worldwide food business due to its ease of availability, nutritional content, and health benefits. You can find it in protein bars, meat alternatives, for example, produced by Planted, and other foods. Pea protein is distinguished from soybean or other plant proteins by its excellent digestion, more inadequate allergic responses, and lack of major health implications.
