Here are a few reasons why we absolutely love this Texture Pea Protein from Lovingly Made!
Peas are packed with benefits!
Textured Pea Proteins boast some pretty great health benefits. That’s because they are especially rich in iron, arginine and branched-chain amino acids. Amino acids can help fuel working muscle and stimulate muscle growth. Also, this textured pea protein is completely free from gluten and soy and is Non-GMO.
Peas help maintain soil structure and nutrient levels
Lovingly Made peas are grown and processed in Canada’s prairies a provide some pretty unique benefits to local farmers. First off, peas can grow in a variety of soil conditions and consume less water than most other crops. Therefore they are easy to farm and require less irrigation. But perhaps even more outstanding is how peas aid in improving soil health! During their growing cycle, pea plants give back nitrogen to the soil. Farmers will rotate in another crop, like oats, grape seed, wheat or canola after a season or two of growing peas. Farmers are then left with nutrient-rich soil which allows them to use less fertilizer and pesticides!

Their facility is gluten and allergen-free, kosher and non-GMO. Oh, and did we mention they are working towards certified B-Corporation status?
