Pea protein represents an extremely viable plant-based protein source that allows for the formulation of high-quality protein enriched foods. A&B Ingredients offers a wide range of pea protein isolates that are supplied in a variety of forms, ideal for health-conscious foods and diets based on a low glycemic index (GI) and/or high protein intake. They are all non-genetically modified (non-GMO) pea protein isolates containing 85% to 90% protein. They are highly digestible (>98%), gluten free and they exhibit low incidents of allergens and low levels of anti-nutritional factors.
Our pea protein isolates can replace a significant percentage of other proteins in many food products without impacting the color, taste or texture of the product. This is especially important when considering the ever-growing move toward all-natural, clean label ingredients. Pea protein isolates have proven to be one of the most tolerated and accepted protein sources without high allergy issues. They are also grown in a more environmentally sustainable way the animal and soy alternatives.
In a recent Frost & Sullivan study it was revealed that the health consciousness of consumers has increased the demand for plant proteins. This market growth is driven by high-protein diets that call for the use of more plant proteins, in addition to continuing growth in vegetarianism.
Vegetable proteins also have a more natural and healthy aspect to them when compared to animal based proteins, which are often linked to health disorders.

- Rich in Lysine and Arginine amino acids
