Pea and Pumpkin Seed Protein
Protein is an essential macronutrient we need to eat everyday. Pea protein powder is sourced from the protein found in yellow peas. It contains all 9 essential amino acids and is a good source of iron. It is an excellent source of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) which are important for growing muscles. Pea protein is one of the vegetable-sourced proteins that our bodies have an easy time breaking down and absorbing.
Pumpkin protein is sourced from pumpkin seeds. We included pumpkin protein because along with some of the essential amino acids it contains other important nutrients such as iron, vitamin K, magnesium, and vitamin E and antioxidants like tocopherols, phenols, and carotenoids. Pumpkin seeds are high in fibre, which can help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease, and improve gut health. These two protein sources combined together make a high-quality protein powder that contains additional beneficial nutrients.
Why We Use It
We wanted a yummy way for picky eaters, vegetarians, and vegans to ensure they are getting enough protein in their diet. These two protein sources combined together make a high-quality protein powder that contains additional beneficial nutrients.
