Peas are less starchy than other legumes, therefore more digestible especially for those suffering digestion disorders. As always, their high fibre content helps prevent constipation.

Peas are eaten both fresh and dried. Fresh, they are low in fat and rich in iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin C and vitamin PP. Dried peas, on the other hand, are more nutritionally dense, higher in calories, as well as iron, magnesium and zinc. The phytoestrogens present in peas help balance our hormones. Finally, peas are used in cosmetics for firming and toning skin masks.

Canned peas are carefully selected and boiled to preserve their sweet flavour and full-bodied consistency. With a high content of vitamins and proteins, they are also rich in iron and phosphorus, precious allies of our daily well-being. In cooking, they are a versatile ingredient for so many dishes such as pasta and rice, soups (minestrone!)  as well as adding to meatballs, chicken salads, tuna with mayonnaise, and Russian salad; peas are such a sweet, delicate addition!
