Pea Protein: Gaining health and peas

1 min read

When we begin the fitness journey, we are bombarded by a number of food supplements available in the market and the choice to be made becomes a strenuous task. Some claim to buff you up while some can give you that body fat percentage that you always wanted, depending on your preferences. Proteins produce heat in the body and require a lot of energy to digest, thus end up in burning more calories.

There are many type of protein supplements available in the market like whey, casein, soy, egg albumin and a recent addition to this list is Pea protein. Peas were always known for being highly bioavailable. The pea protein is made from field peas, which contain high amounts of protein (about 25%).

Like Whey protein, these also have high amount of BCAAs( Branched Chain Amino Acids) which are essential for building muscle and losing fat. This protein is recommended for active lifestyles as it is rich in arginine and lysine, two of the essential amino acids and the market for this is expanding exponentially as discussed in our report.

The combinations of rice and beans or peanut butter and wheat bread were being generally used by health-nuts to provide protein with the amino acid values of meat. Similarly, unflavoured rice protein is considered to be the perfect complement for pea protein due to its high methionine content and the pea’s high lysine content.

North America and Europe are the largest markets with about one-thirds share of pea protein. Other developing countries are emerging markets in the sector accounting for the increasing health consciousness and western influence. The global pea protein market had revenue $ 22.8 million in 2015 and is expected to touch $ 35 million by 2020 with an estimated CAGR of 8.9% as forecasted in our report.
