How do we get protein from peas?

Pea Protein Isolate is obtained from non-GMO yellow peas, Pisum sativum, grown in northern France in an environmentally-friendly manner. In contrast to pea protein from other sources, Phyto Pro Pea Protein Isolate is obtained through a chemical-free process that begins with:

Combining dehydrated peas with only water, to form a liquid suspension.

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), used to enhance energy metabolism and maintain tissue during activity

Amino acids are separated from the rest of the pea suspension using the differences in electric charge and specific gravity between proteins, carbohydrates and fibre.

  • The liquid suspension of pea protein is finally spray-dried into a fine powder.
  • This is done at a low temperature in order to maintain the nutritional integrity of the protein.
  • The final pea protein powder has an average protein concentration of between 85-88%.
