Pea protein is a relatively new form of protein supplement, valued for its high digestibility (90-95%), low potential for allergic responses and reasonable price. It is particularly popular because it has a sweet taste and a texture which mixes well in liquid solutions.
It is also useful for mixing into soups and stews. Alternatively, it can be blended with liquids of your choice, as well as fruit (like banana) to make a healthy smoothie.
