WHAT'S A YELLOW PEA?
This legume has a culinary history dating back over 10,000 years and is a delicious part of cuisines around the world.
Immature yellow peas start out green, but as they mature into dry seeds, yellow peas turn yellow.
Yellow Peas are a greener choice because they improve the soil by fixing nitrogen and require less water to grow than wheat.

ZENB aims to effectively harness the goodness of nature to achieve more mindful food. For us, that meant creating ZENB Pasta with a single ingredient: the Yellow Pea.

ZENB Yellow Pea Pasta contains 44 g Carbohydrates per 85g uncooked serving. UK Government guidelines recommend that 1/3 daily dietary energy come from carbohydrates. Whilst 44g per serving is not considered low carb, yellow peas contain complex carbohydrates as opposed to the traditional sugars found in other pasta. Read more information on simple and complex carbohydrates here.
The Keto diet eliminates carbohydrates in order for the body to enter "ketosis". As yellow peas are fairly rich in carbohydrates, they would not be suitable for the Keto diet.
Yellow peas and chickpeas are not the same, although they are both in the legume family. Chickpeas are slightly bigger than yellow peas and can be eaten fresh as opposed to yellow peas which are harvested when dried.
