Does NUTRALYS® pea protein have a good amino acid profile?

See answer

The amino acid profile of pea protein is well balanced and fulfills the requirements defined by the FAO in 2008 for adults and children with a slight deficiency in sulphur-containing amino acids. Indeed it presents a typical legume protein profile: high level of lysine, and low level of sulphur-containing amino acids (methionine+cysteine). 

This makes pea a very good candidate for complementation with cereals such as wheat or rice which are low in lysine and high in those sulphur-containing amino-acid.  The synergy with NUTRALYS® W wheat protein is of high interest (see NUTRALYS® wheat protein range).

N.B. The amino acids cannot be stored in the body: amino acids in excess are eliminated. Therefore, balancing the consumption of animal (egg and milk proteins with an amino-acid score >>100) and vegetable protein sources is a relevant way to fulfill essential amino-acid requirement without wasting.
