Peas are one of the oldest cultivated plants of all. Not only that, they are also a great source of protein and contain various B vitamins that play an important role in energy metabolism. They also score with vitamin C and minerals such as potassium, magnesium and phosphorus. By the way, hulled peas are not a separate type of pea, but merely peas that no longer have a shell. This has the advantage that the shelled variety is cooked much more quickly. In addition, shelled peas break down during cooking and become creamy, so perfect for purees and better digestibility.
