THE ECO-FRIENDLY LEGUME
Because it’s a spring crop the pea needs less water compared to most other plant-based protein sources, like almonds and soy. The space needed to produce pea-based protein is also comparatively small, even smaller than for soy. And the cultivation of the pea is done without any nitrogen fertilizers.
HIGH IN PROTEIN
With high levels of protein and fibre, the pea has been a staple food for centuries. It contains several important amino acids, which are vital for the health of our muscles, immune system and bones.
Sproud’s products are made of protein from dry yellow peas cultivated in Europe, where the protein also is extracted. It’s a clean process without chemical solvents. The supply chain is local and short. Sproud’s products are made in Sweden, and in the future we also plan to use peas cultivated here.
THE ART OF NO
Besides “no milk, no gluten and no soy” the pea is also free of (or low in) a lot of other not-so-good stuff. It’s non-GMO and does not contain any cholesterol or allergens. And it’s low in sugar and fat.
