Pea hulls: Exafine 500
The external fibre of yellow peas is a natural insoluble fibre. The careful husking of the pea seeds provides hulls practically free of digestible sugars and fats. Moreover, the peas are cleaned before hulling and a heat treatment of pea fiber offers microbiological guarantees.
