About pea milk
Pea milk is one of the more recent dairy alternatives to hit the market in the United States. Pea milk is made from yellow peas that are processed into a powder known as pea isolate. The pea protein is separated from the fiber and starch, purified, and mixed with water and other select ingredients that may include sea salt, sunflower oil, and certain vitamins and minerals. The resulting milk doesn't taste anything like peas.
There are many health benefits you can enjoy with pea milk. If you have allergies or food sensitivities, you'll be happy to know that pea milk is dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and nut-free. This covers nearly all the bases where other milk products fall short. Pea milk is higher in protein than other milk alternatives. It has the same protein content as 2% dairy milk, while almond milk has an eighth of the protein.
If you're trying to cut your calories, you'll be pleased to know that pea milk has 20% fewer calories than dairy milk. It also has just a sixth of the saturated fat found in milk. This doesn't mean that pea milk is lacking in nutrients, though. It contains 50% more calcium than dairy milk and is also rich in vitamin D, iron, and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. Pea proteins also have branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which help regulate blood sugar and increase muscle mass.
Pea milk is available in several flavors:
- Original: Pea milk is rich and creamy with very little flavor in its original form. Some describe it as slightly tangy. You might drink original pea milk on its own, use it in your cereal, or add it to your coffee. It also works well as a milk substitute in smoothies, sauces, and soups.
- Unsweetened: Unsweetened pea milk has less sugar than original pea milk, but this also results in a chalkier texture and flatter taste. Unsweetened pea milk is best suited to cooking and baking, where it mixes well with other ingredients.
- Chocolate or Vanilla: You can also purchase chocolate or vanilla pea milk through Instacart. These flavored options have a thick consistency that's similar to a milkshake, and they have a richer flavor that can be enjoyed on its own or in a smoothie or coffee.
