importance of peas as a sustainable crop is increasing all the time.

HIGH FUNCTIONAL STARCH
Startex® – the demand of functional starches having a clean label is increasing continously. Peas are a source of medium-low glycemic starch which has outstanding functional properties, such as water binding capacity in cold and warm temperature and also a good oil binding capacity. In addition, peas have a low allergenic capacity, and are important sustainable crops.
Peas have the ability of fertilizing the soil by fixation of nitrogen from air to the roots of the plant. Peas have also a low carbon footprint and require low quantities of water compared to animal protein sources and soybeans.
