Peas are consumed as a vegetable worldwide for their high nutritional value and health benefits. Not only are peas high in protein, fiber, starch, vitamins and minerals, but they are also non-allergenic and environmentally sustainable. As part of the legume family, pea plants have the ability to lock in nitrogen from the atmosphere and store it in their root nodules. This nitrogen-fixation ability allows producers to use less fertilizer and replenish the soil with nitrogen, making peas a much desired sustainable crop.
