THE PEA

Everything you need to know about pea protein.

THE MISSION

Today many of us choose to consume less animal products in favour of more plant-based ones, for health and environmental reasons and in consideration for the future of the planet. This is a big and important shift in consumer behaviour.

As our knowledge of plant-based food deepens, we strive to find better and better sources of protein. We want protein that has a minimal carbon footprint, comes with clean processes and produces nutritious and delicious products – like the pea.

THE ECO-FRIENDLY LEGUME

Compared to previous generations of plant-based products – based on soy, nuts and grains – the pea is superior in every way. It needs less water to culture and contains loads of protein that´s possible to extract without chemical solvents.

CLEAN PROCESS

Sproud’s products are made of protein from dry yellow peas cultivated in Europe, where the protein also is extracted. It’s a clean process without chemical solvents. The supply chain is local and short. Sproud’s products are made in Sweden, and in the future we also plan to use peas cultivated here.

THE ART OF NO

Besides “no milk, no gluten and no soy” the pea is also free of (or low in) a lot of other not-so-good stuff. It’s non-GMO and does not contain any cholesterol or allergens. And it’s low in sugar and fat.
