Biological Pea Protein Powder
Protein supplements are very popular among sports people who want to build muscle mass and regenerate them after training, but also among vegetarians and vegans, whose diet may not provide enough protein to the body. Also, people with lactose intolerance eagerly reach for plant proteins. Pea proteins are valued for their amino acid composition, especially the content of exogenous amino acids, i.e. those that the body is unable to synthesize itself. The product contains over 83% protein. Pea protein provides not only 18 amino acids, but also valuable vitamins and minerals: iron, magnesium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, B vitamins, vitamins C, A and E. In addition, pea protein is distinguished by a large content of dietary fiber, which, combined with the low content of carbohydrates, makes the supplement have a low glycemic index. Pea protein is high in lysine and low in cysteine and methionine. That is why it is popular to mix pea protein with rice protein, which is high in cysteine and methionine and low in lysine.
