Pea protein powder is the golden ticket to your dream body, thanks to its exceptional, full-spectrum protein levels.
Pea protein powder consists of pea protein isolate derived from yellow peas, which is then blended with flavours and preservatives. Different manufacturers rely on varying methods of blending and packaging, but the basic ingredient is pea protein isolate.
This isolate is extracted from yellow peas through a mechanical process to separate it from the rest of the peas. This process is necessary to keep out potassium, sodium, and other potentially unwanted or unhealthy compounds.
To do this, the outer cover of the pea seeds is first removed using machines. The seeds are milled to obtain fine flour, which is then dissolved in water. Pea protein isolate is water-soluble, so filtrating removes the remaining material including starch and fibre.
Wet filtration and a centrifuge later helps to remove the protein isolate from the water, which results in a completely organic pea protein powder containing as much as 85%-90% pure protein.
Pea protein is a great alternative to other sources of protein isolates for various reasons. In fact, it is almost perfect from every point of view.
It is hypoallergenic. Pea protein has no ingredient from sources known to cause allergy. Specifically, it has no milk, nuts, fish, soy, wheat, gluten, or any animal products.
As with other plant-based supplements, pea protein is suitable for vegetarians and vegans alike. It is also used to make fake meat and as a meat extender.
Yellow peas are exceptionally high in protein.
Pea protein has some fibre in it that gets through the mechanical processing. The fibre helps to improve digestion and gut health.
Pea protein isolate has most of the essential acids the body does not manufacture, making it an almost complete protein. It is especially high in lysine.
Pea protein powder is ideal for patients suffering from renal failure and kidney disease, thanks to its low levels of potassium, sodium, magnesium. The VPA blog has more information on who pea protein is good for.
Yellow peas are sustainable. The yellow pea plant, Pisum sativum, is a very hardy crop that does well in very cold and dry climates.
A study published on NCBI (a peer-reviewed archive of medical studies) showed that taking pea protein powder and continuing the daily exercise levels helped significantly to increase the size and strength of biceps.
While whey protein powder showed almost similar results, placebos had no marked increase in muscle growth, size, or strength.
Pea protein powder acts by stimulating muscle growth and providing the protein necessary to do just that. It also helps in muscle recovery, which when added to regular exercise works to make the muscles stronger.
Pea protein is excellent for losing fat and building lean muscle. It increases satiety after and between meals, reducing the overall calorie intake. A high protein diet also helps the body’s metabolism run by up to 35% more, burning more fat and reducing weight.
High protein diets have long been known to help improve weight loss, and research toward the same has had conclusive results. Pea protein has a double advantage because it has no animal ingredients and very few calories.
Pea protein is completely free of lactose and other animal products. It is extracted from organic, non-GMO yellow peas and sold as-is with natural preservatives and flavourings.
This process leaves the pea protein powder completely free of lactose. Lactose-intolerant people can take pea protein safely. Those who are allergic to animal-based products, such as shellfish, can take it as well.
However, it is important to source your pea protein from reputable manufacturers. This is why VPA Australia gives a full product guarantee regarding quality and purity.
All pea protein powder in Australia sold by VPA is completely free of gluten and wheat products. It is extracted from varieties of yellow peas through dissolution and filtration, and since peas themselves are free of gluten, there is no chance of having it in pea-based protein powder.
As you buy pea protein online in Australia, you also need to think about its fat content in terms of the recommended dietary intake (RDI). VPA pea protein powder has 0.9g of fat in every 30g serving or 3g in 100g. As such, pea protein is generally low in fats.
No, pea protein does not have cholesterol. Pea protein powder consists mainly of pea protein isolate, which is 70-85% pure protein extracted from split or yellow peas. The extraction process leaves behind all forms of cholesterol.
In fact, there is medical evidence to suggest that pea protein helps to lower the levels of cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in the blood. It does this through a protein called lysine, which after conversion into carnitine helps the body to burn fatty acids and release energy.
VPA sells delicious, organic pea protein powder in Australia with flavours to mask the otherwise bitter, earthy taste of pea protein. You can even dissolve it in warm water and take it as-is, add to your smoothie for a delicious, protein-packed snack, or sprinkle the powder on regular food.

“Have been looking for an alternative to Whey Protein and this is great. Other reviewers have suggested using it in smoothies but I like it just with coconut milk and water. I’ve grown accustomed to the tickle to the throat it gives as I’m drinking it. It’s great-tasting chocolate flavour and I’m enjoying the effect it has on my gut. No bloating, no gas. All gains.” - Joe M
“My usual pea protein supplier went out of business, which is why I so happened to find VPAs pea protein isolate... and am I ever glad I did! Fanatic raw protein with no stomach upsets after consuming as with many other brands that have so many unnecessary additives. Highly recommend this product!” - Noelle O
“I have been taking this for a few weeks now. One of my favourite recipes is approx 450ml of coconut or almond milk, 2 flat scoops of pea protein and 4 tsp of cacao, one whole banana and 50g of frozen berries. This is sufficient for my wife and I. If I want to feel fuller to supplement breakfast I just add my muesli to this protein shake. I drink within 1hr of work out to help with muscle recovery and growth. I recommend Pea Protein for those that are lactose intolerant and have allergies or vegan. It also uses less environmental footprint being plant-based which is a bonus!” -Vicky N
“I’ve been trying to cut down on animal products so this was an obvious choice for my protein supplement. It’s delicious and I feel great.
“Have been dubious about buying protein but when I found this I was happy. Very content with this product, mixes well and so pleasant to drink. Thank you kindly.- Sandra J ”
