About Peazazz
 Derived from field peas, Peazazz's uniquely clean
flavor characteristics, exceptional solubility and nutritional value
make it ideal for use in a variety of food, beverage and nutritional
products. Ideal applications for Peazazz include sports nutrition
beverages, citrus-based drinks, fruit-flavored beverages, fruit juice
blends, fortified waters, dairy alternative products and powdered
beverage mixes. Peazazz can also fortify snacks, cereals and diet
products, as well as gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan food products.
Compared to other plant-based proteins, pea proteins are also
hypoallergenic and more environmentally sustainable. Pea plants have
a unique ability to draw in nitrogen from the atmosphere and store it
in their roots. This allows producers to use less fertilizer when
replenishing the soil, making pea a desired and truly sustainable
crop.
