Peas (Pisum sativum) are a versatile and popular ingredient in the food industry. They are used in a variety of products such as soups, stews, casseroles, side dishes and also add bulk and texture to meat dishes. They are also used in many ethnic cuisines, such as Indian and Chinese dishes.
Peas are also considered to be a sustainable crop as they are easy to grow, require less water and fertilizer than other protein sources, and they are part of the rotation crop system which helps in nutrient cycling and pest control.
The peas we offer at Tobien Trading GmbH have been freeze-dried to preserve its flavor, color, and nutritional value and that they can be used all year round. The process of freeze-drying involves freezing the peas and then removing the water from them through a process of sublimation. This creates a lightweight, shelf-stable product that can be easily stored and transported. Freeze-dried peas are a great source of nutrients, including protein, fiber, and a variety of vitamins and minerals. They are particularly high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Folate, Iron and Phosphorus. They are also low in calories and fat, making them a healthy and convenient snack option.
