Why Pea Protein?

It’s true what they say; proteins really are the building blocks of life. Every cell in the human body is made up of chains of amino acids, which are in themselves the building blocks of protein. Our body loses and replaces approximately two million cells per second, and without adequate protein from our diet, our body is unable to repair damaged cells or produce new ones. Simply put, we need adequate protein in order to thrive.

If you follow a plant-based diet, have dairy sensitivities or allergies or are prone to digestive upset, pea protein is a great option for you. Pea protein is a complete plant-based protein source that is made by grinding dried peas into a fine powder.

Here are a few benefits
to taking pea protein:

Vegan, vegetarian and dairy free
Free of gluten, soy and other common allergens
Easy to digest
High protein content

Great for Everybody!

Our versatile pea protein isolate is great for everybody! It is vegan and vegetarian friendly, as well as great for those following a paleo diet, which is due to our water-based isolation process that removes lectins. It is also naturally free of gluten, soy, corn, nuts, eggs and other common allergens.

Tummy Friendly

Pea proteins are allergen friendly and may be easier to digest for many people who are prone to digestive upset. Our protein, from Premium European Golden Peas grown in the fertile fields of Northern France, is lectin free and contributes to its 98% digestibility rating, and also makes it suitable for vegan and paleo diets.

Complete Amino Acid Profile

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Overall, pea protein is an amino acid-rich food, and makes for a wonderful source of amino acids that your body needs.

High Protein Content

Nuzest Clean Lean Protein contains 20-21 grams of protein per serving, depending on flavor, plus it’s low carb and has no added sugar.

To achieve high levels of protein, a chemical called Hexane is often used. We use a patented process that uses only water. The patented, water-based isolation technology removes all lectins (which cause gut inflammation and interfere with absorption) and almost all phytic acid, making it:

With a very fine particle size compared with other pea proteins
Making it easier to mix in liquid
And better absorbed
Which makes it more effective for repair of muscle and tissues

Clean Lean Protein is made with Premium European Golden Peas sourced from a family-owned company that is regarded as world leaders in pea protein isolation. It is arguably the highest quality pea protein isolate in the world… and much better for you!

The key to quality and safety is testing. Nuzest tests EVERY bath of our entire product line for heavy metals and allergens, including gluten and safe microbial levels. In Australia and New Zealand, there must be no detectable gluten and that is why our protein is truly gluten free and meets the strict Australian and New Zealand standards.

We guarantee that our protein is made with 100% Pisane pea protein isolate, not a concentrate. It’s also not blended with less expensive sources to lower the cost… it’s European from seed to mouth.

Our peas are also better for the environment – lower carbon footprint, less water, and sustainable. Peas are a sustainable crop that uses less water and less land than required for animal protein and other plant proteins. No chemicals are used in the isolation process and all water used is purified and recycled.
