A versatile option for human and animal nutrition
In the case of fresh pea, its juicy pods can be consumed directly after being shelled, providing a tasty and nutrient-rich culinary experience. Alternatively, it can be preserved by freezing or drying.
As for the dried pea, its seeds are used in various forms.
They can be ground to make pea flour, which is used in the preparation of bread, buns, gluten-free baked goods, and more. In addition, pea seeds can be broken or flaked, expanding the possibilities for use in recipes such as soups, stews, salads, and grain-based dishes.
In the case of protein pea, the seeds can be processed into a protein meal that is then used as a nutritional component in feed for farm animals.
Because of its protein content, protein pea is a viable alternative to traditional protein sources and contributes to animal health and growth.
