Peas are a common vegetable, grown and consumed in almost every corner of the globe. While you’re probably very familiar with peas and the countless recipes they’re used in, you’ve probably never tried Speckled Pea Micro Greens in a salad, on a sandwich, or in a hearty soup.
Pea sprouts, also known as pea greens or micro greens, are the young leaves and shoots that sprout from the seeds found within legume pods. Every pea is a seed, and every pea can sprout to form new legume plants.
Freshly harvested pea sprouts are rich in vitamins and minerals. A single serving of 1 Cup (approximately 100g) of pea micro greens is low in calories and relatively high in protein. As you can see, incorporating pea sprouts will provide a significant boost to your Vitamin C and Iron intake, without providing excessive calories through carbohydrates. The fiber percentage is also relatively high compared to the serving weight.
The sprouts of peas are like other micro greens in the way that they are nutritionally dense and come with several notable health benefits. As a matter of fact, they contain up to 40x more nutrients. Pea microgreens can help to promote overall health, ward off disease, and may also help prevent cancer. The high amounts of Vitamin C can also reduce the risk of infections and pneumonia when suffering from the common cold, and higher concentrations of Vitamin C in the blood can even help to lower the risk of stroke.
