Blue-green field peas, though small, are a nutritionally powerful member of the legume family and an excellent source of cholesterol-lowering fiber. Besides helping reduce cholesterol, their high fiber content is particularly beneficial for managing blood sugar disorders, as it prevents rapid spikes in blood sugar levels after meals.

Peas also offer good to excellent amounts of four essential minerals, two B-vitamins, and protein, all while being virtually fat-free. Additionally, they contain isoflavones, particularly daidzein. Isoflavones are phytonutrients that can act like weak estrogens in the body, and their dietary consumption has been associated with a reduced risk of certain health conditions, including breast and prostate cancer.
