Related Technical Questions with the product:
I would like to know the profile of amino acids contained in your pea protein as compared to other protein products, such as whey or hemp. Are there any differences regarding digestibility and absorption? Also would like to know if the reason why you only produce pea as protein powder is because it offers less potential to allergies. Finally, I know that powders are not to be used in cooking/heating, as they are very sensitive and can alter their structure. Is this the same for pea protein?.
Lamberts® Pea Protein is a highly concentrated protein product sourced from yellow peas. The extraction and purification processes raise the protein content from the normal level of 6% in fresh peas to 80% in this product. This unique process produces protein that is highly soluble and therefore easy to digest and absorb. We specifically chose peas as the source of protein because the amino acid profile is excellent as it is rich in ‘branched chain amino acids’ (leucine, isoleucine and valine) and is richer in arginine than any other commercially available protein. Arginine is involved in the immune system response to challenges and also plays a part in weight control.
Pea protein has many uses as it is free from wheat, gluten, dairy products, eggs, soya and animal products. It is unsweetened and has a mild savoury taste making it useful for mixing in to soups and stews. It can also be blended with fruit such as a banana to make a fruit smoothie.
- Can be used for recovering from illness and/or have low appetites.
- Popular with sport people looking for a protein for muscle development and endurance but want to avoid dairy or soya based products.
- Useful for slimmers and people with food cravings as provides slow release energy.
If you would prefer another source of protein, then you may wish to consider the Lamberts range of whey protein formulas in our sports range.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Pea Protein in Lipoprotein-A- cholesterol" title_tag="h2"]
I wanted to share a response formulated for a customer who was concerned about Pea Protein increasing their Lipoprotein-A- cholesterol. This may be useful for you.
R/ Lipoprotein A concentrations have a tendency to be affected by disease states, (for instance kidney failure), but are only slightly affected by diet, exercise, and other environmental factors.
There is no scientific evidence which indicates, or even suggests, that Pea protein increases lipoprotein A levels.
If you are concerned about high levels of Lipoprotein A and wish to avoid consuming fish, you may wish to consider Lamberts Plant Sterols. We all have a good idea which foods are high in cholesterol but what is not generally known is that our body produces its own cholesterol which is secreted into the digestive system in the form of bile to aid the digestive process. In this way a huge amount of cholesterol is secreted and reabsorbed every day irrespective of the amount of cholesterol present in the food we are eating.
Plant sterols are useful because they block cholesterol from being re-absorbed from the gut into the bloodstream, and any cholesterol not absorbed is simply excreted. This is why diets high in plant sterols can help to control blood cholesterol levels, and why plant sterols are now added to some specialist margarines. Although plant sterols are naturally present in vegetable oils and grains, modern diets tend to be low in these important nutrients, and so it may be difficult to always achieve optimum levels from diet alone.
Each Lamberts Plant Sterol tablet contains 400mg of free plant sterols, with up to 80% beta-sitosterols. We quote the level of pure plant sterols, not the compound weight declared by some companies that may be only 50% sterols. This can make a useful contribution to our daily intake, without any unnecessary additional calories.
Other formulas you may wish to research are Lamberts Ibisene which is an artichoke preparation which increases bile production and Lamberts Soya Lecithin which emulsifies fats in the diet.[/lightweight-accordion] [lightweight-accordion title="> Pea Protein origin" title_tag="h2"]

I have been several months consuming a range of your products, one of them is amino acids BCAA (6 capsules daily).
I wanted to ask if it is possible to remove the capsule and only take the powder in a glass of water.
R/ you can open the capsules of amino acids and take with a little water or juice of fruits, not with milk. You also have the option of PEA PROTEIN which is complete vegetable protein powder with all the amino acids.[/lightweight-accordion]
