Pea protein is said to be one of the most perfect proteins for human consumption.
Pea protein has a perfect, hypoallergenic, balanced supply of amino acids for people wishing to avoid dairy and soya based products. It is an excellent choice for people that suffer from food allergies/intolerances. Soy, whey, egg and animal-based protein supplements have all been shown to produce allergic reactions in some people and their potential for allergic reactions can increase with repeated use. The amino acid profile is very close to that of milk and egg protein, however pea proteins are low in fat, carbohydrates and cholesterol.
