Split peas are simply dry peas that have been split along the natural seam, which eliminates the need to presoak.

Whole green dry peas – A powerhouse of nutrients

Choose dry peas for a healthy and balanced diet. Why? Because the high level of protein, dietary fibre and beneficial starch packed into something so small is hard to beat. Dry peas are also a natural source of folate and zinc, have little fat and no cholesterol making them suitable for almost any diet. Dry peas are thought to have originated in the Middle East and have been cultivated for thousands of years. Yellow peas and green peas are the two most commonly available varieties of dry peas. The green peas have a slightly stronger flavour then the yellows peas, which have a slightly milder, sweeter taste. Split peas are simply dry peas that have been split along the natural seam, which encourages faster cooking and eliminates the need to presoak.

Dry peas can be used in a variety of different ways in modern cuisine.

The rise and rise of dry peas

Dry peas can be used in a variety of different ways in modern cuisine. Whether in soup, stir-fried dishes, salads, stews, or pies, green peas are a delicious and extremely healthy ingredient. In many Asian countries, roasted and salted peas are consumed as a healthy and tasty snack. In the UK, yellow split peas are used to make the traditional Pease Pudding for example, one of Britain’s oldest and most traditional dishes. Furthermore, roasted pea flour (also called peasemeal) made from milled yellow peas, is increasingly being used in protein-enriched pasta, baking and snack foods.
