NutraSumma pea protein, sold at all Valley-area Sprouts Farmers Markets locations, tastes great, is low in fat and carbohydrates and free of soy, gluten and lactose, making it suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those with food allergies and sensitivities.

Pea protein has a high biological value, because the body absorbs it easily. It provides the body with a full amino acid profile, delivering large amounts of branched chain amino acids isoleucine, valine, arginine and lysine. Pea protein promotes muscle synthesis and recovery after exercise, helps reduce muscle loss in older adults and has been shown to lower blood pressure and stabilize blood sugar.

Highly versatile pea protein can be used in shakes or incorporated into many recipes, and it provides the feeling of fullness that can contribute to weight loss.
