Project Description

Dry peas (Pisum sativum) have the largest production volume of all special crops in Canada. There are several varieties of dry peas grown in Canada including yellow, green, maple, green marrowfat, and Austrian winter peas. s, including dry peas, are increasingly being used in healthy diets in order to promote general well-being and to reduce the risk of illness. They are low in sodium, high in protein and are an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fibre, complex carbohydrates, B vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron and potassium. Dry peas are an excellent source of the B vitamin folate which is an essential nutrient. In addition, folate consumption during pregnancy has been shown to reduce the risk of neural tube defects and, according to the USDA’s Agriculture Research Service, may have positive effects on heart disease and the nervous system. According to researchers at the University of Chicago and the University of Alabama, increasing folate in your diet can also lower the chances of developing colon and cervical cancer.

We offer following varieties of peas:

  • Yellow Peas
