Have you heard? Our new flavor, Garden Pea, is here! Why Garden Pea? Beyond being delicious, it’s a nutrient-packed treat that kids love. Here’s a peek into just a few of the reasons we’re thrilled to bring this new puff your way!
Peas are some of the oldest edible plants, but they aren’t vegetables! Instead, these little green pods belong to the legume family and offer a host of nutritional benefits. Peas grow in pods on a vine, and once the pods are plump, they can be picked and shelled. Peas are great for baby-led weaning due to their small, soft size.
1. Peas are a Good Source of Plant-Based Protein
Peas are loaded with fiber, iron, and protein which make them a filling food choice. Peas are a great source of protein for vegetarian recipes.
2. Full of Vitamins and Minerals
Peas provide a variety of vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C, and K; potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, folate, and other B-vitamins. Both fresh and frozen peas, as well as low-sodium canned peas, provide all these nutrients and more.
3. Support Heart Health
Peas are naturally high in soluble fiber, magnesium, folate, and potassium which contribute to a healthy heart. When prepared with low sodium, peas make a great addition to a heart-healthy diet.
4. Support Digestive Health
Peas are rich in fiber which not only supports digestion but also fuels our gut microbes that play a big part in our overall health. Pea proteins can increase healthy gut bacteria which leads to several benefits including a healthy digestive tract.
5. Supports a Strong Immune System
Healthy gut bacteria not only help keep our digestive systems in order but can also increase immune health. Regularly eating legumes — like peas — can help reduce the risk of some cancers due to their high antioxidant levels.
