Market Growth & Trends

Yellow and green split peas, also known as Pisum sativum, are a source of food products and protein supplements. It can be used in place of other food items or as a dietary supplement to help people consume more protein or other nutrients (e.g., the substitution of dairy milk for pea milk). It is utilized in food production as a powdered ingredient, such as a thickening, foaming agent, or emulsifier. A healthy diet and an active lifestyle are becoming increasingly popular among consumers, fuelling pea protein growth. Additionally, there is a huge market opportunity due to developing more products with targeted purposes, such as energy balancing, weight loss, muscle restoration, and satiety. Other peas, such as dry, green, and chickpeas, extract the protein. These peas are accessible as concentrates, textured foods, and isolates. Because they are produced using plant-based materials, these products are ideal for people who choose vegan diets. The increasing awareness among consumers for health-related issues and increasing demand for nutritious, food-rich, and high proteins drive the market’s growth. Furthermore, the growing need for vegan food products and flexitarian populations adds impetus to the market’s growth. When compared nutritionally, rice and pea proteins have a similar amount of protein (15–22 grams, on average, grams calories), are free of gluten, and are suitable for people with allergies.
