History confirms that wild peas were foraged and consumed dating back to 9750 B.C.E., though they were not cultivated until thousands of years later.
Peas are especially good for maintaining blood sugar levels, they contain amino acids, minerals and vitamins. They are an environmentally friendly product and a sustainable crop. They consume less water than traditional root crops and when compared with animal protein, they have a low carbon footprint.
They are a great source of cholesterol lowering fibre and as a legume flour it has little fat which makes it a very healthy flour to use in your recipes.
