R76 per 400g / R190 per kg

Pea pasta is a type of pasta made from pea flour, which is a gluten-free and plant-based alternative to wheat flour. Pea pasta is becoming increasingly popular due to its potential health benefits, including:

  1. High in protein: Pea pasta is a great source of plant-based protein, which is important for building and repairing tissues in the body, as well as supporting immune function.

  2. Gluten-free: Pea pasta is naturally gluten-free, making it a great option for people who have celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

  3. Low glycemic index: Pea pasta has a low glycemic index, which means it causes a slower rise in blood sugar levels and may help regulate blood sugar levels and insulin sensitivity.

  4. High in fiber: Pea pasta is also a good source of dietary fiber, which can help promote healthy digestion, regulate bowel movements, and keep you feeling full and satisfied.

  5. Rich in vitamins and minerals: Pea pasta is a good source of several important vitamins and minerals, including iron, zinc, folate, and vitamin B6.

  6. Sustainable and eco-friendly: Peas are a sustainable crop that require less water and fertilizers than other crops, making pea pasta a more eco-friendly option compared to traditional wheat pasta.

It's important to note that while pea pasta is generally considered safe and nutritious, it may not be suitable for everyone. Some people may have an allergy or sensitivity to peas, and consuming large amounts of pea pasta can potentially cause digestive issues. As with any new food or dietary change, it's recommended to consult with a healthcare provider or registered dietitian to determine if pea pasta is a good option for you.
