Green peas have been cultivated for thousands of years. In Europe, this leguminous vegetable became popular in the 16th century, and now it is grown all over the world. Green peas are unique even among such exceptionally rich nutrient content plants as legumes. They are a rich source of phytonutrients, minerals, and vitamins, especially those of the group B. Therefore, it`s not surprising that many public health organizations recommend them as a key food for improving health.

Health benefits

  1. Cardiovascular system protection.
    Potent health benefits of green peas are accounted for by certain phytonutrients with high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities, some of which can be found only in this plant. It is believed that many diseases, including those of the heart and blood vessels, start due to chronic oxidative stress and inflammation. Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients together with the group B vitamins prevent the formation of plaques on the blood vessel walls. Additionally, green peas are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids in the form of Alfa-linoleic acid and Omega-6 fatty acids in the form of linoleic acid (30 mg and 130 mg per one cup respectively). All these factors make this vegetable a powerful weapon in the struggle against cardiovascular diseases.
  2. Lower the risk of type 2 diabetes.
    Scientists explain the link between green pea consumption and blood sugar regulation by their low glycemic index and high content of soluble and insoluble fiber. The fiber regulates the pace at which the food is digested and the breakdown of starches into sugar. This promotes stabilization of blood sugar levels and lowers the risk of diabetes.
  3. Cancer prevention.
    One of the phytonutrients – coumestrol – is believed to have anti-cancer properties. According to studies, the daily 2 mg intake of it with green peas lowers the risk of stomach cancer. 100 g of green peas contain about 7 mg of this substance.
  4. Healthy digestive system and weight management.
    This comes from the high content of fiber, which improves peristalsis and cleanses the intestine. Moreover, green peas are low in calories (81 calories per 100 g).

  1. I purchased the peas with the thought of adding them to a trail mix blend. I purchased soy sauce and proceeded to soak the peas in the sauce overnight. I then boiled the peas in a large pot with garlic salt and blessed salt. After four hours they were ready to roast. I roasted them for about an hour, which was too long. Left alone without the roasting they turned out great. Thanks for the tip.

  2. I have ordered from this seller many times and have always been impressed with the swift delivery and quality of their products. The one time I had a quality issue, I notified them and received an apology and discount on my next order. I will continue my relationship with Food To Live for the foreseeable future.

  5. Best whole dried peas we’ve ever purchased… so good in fact we ordered another two bags… when we rinsed them off before soaking they were so clean they hardly needed rinsing…. I am planning to look at this company to see what else they have.. and purchase from them… I also love that they send a follow up e-mail to see if we liked the product or had any problem in anyway… Good Job!!!!!!

  10. Arrived by priority mail in three days. Twenty five pounds split between two sturdy 12.5 pound plastic bags. These bags feel/appear to be vacuum sealed noting a 4 year “use by” date. Have not opened them Part of bag is transparent and the peas are good sized and look very nice.
