Hey ya'll,

 

I was wondering if it would be okay to digest split peas raw/uncooked. I have grounded some into a fine powder and put it into a protein shake, instead of using protein powder. It is a very cheap alternative and it offers a great amount of protein as well as carbohydrates with dietary fiber.

 

So, I am mainly asking if our bodies have any trouble digesting split peas (as a pea powder) or if uncooked split peas have an toxins that can cause problems with our bodies.

 

THANKS!

I don't think there are any toxins. I've eaten raw peas and never had any distress. I've also seen recipes for raw split-pea soup. Since they're dehydrated, you might want to take some extra water with them.

Okay thank you. I was wondering because I have researched a little and saw that other beans have some toxins and if not cooked can cause bodily problems.

 

A buddy and I have been thinking of great and simple ways to create "protein powder" naturally that would be cheap and easy to put together. (we are trying to put on weight and the split peas offers a decent amount of protein and a excellent source of carbohydrates including large amounts of dietary fiber).

 

Although I have learned the taste of finely ground split peas is quite unpleasant.

 

I'm trying to put together different foods that could drown out the taste of the grounded split peas... Any suggestions???

If you like chocolate then maybe add some cocoa powder, see if that helps.  Do you use cow or plant milk?  If plant milk then I think soy is the best source of protein (might be wrong).

Are we talking about DRIED spilt peas? 

It sounds like the people responding are thinking of fresh peas, uncooked> That's fine.

 

If you're grinding dried split peas, I don't know!

 

How do they make protein powder from peas?

Yes I am talking about dried uncooked split peas

i.e:

They make "protein powder" simply because they are fairly rich in protein per serving (10g). It is by no means a large amount of protein, but the split peas also offer a good amount of carbohydrates which are much needed as well. 

 

I was thinking it would be better for me to intake a natural easy to make as well as cheap "protein powder" over ones you can buy.

Pea protein is sold to aid muscle development (veg*n high protein powder without casein etc).  It's made from split yellow peas and the manufactured forms cost quite a bit.

Pea protein actually tastes nothing like peas, being so processed that's probably no wonder. I recently paid nearly £17 for 908 grams (2lbs) so you're probably better off trying to find a cheaper source.

I've extracted my own pea protein from split peas,

1. grind; or soak 100g dried split peas over night,
2. blend into a minimum amount of water (roughly 300ml) to make a viscous paste,
3. strain paste with a cheesecloth and keep the liquid,
4. repeat step 2 with the same solids 2 more times,
5. leave the liquid for an hour or two for starch to settle out and decant the liquid from the starch
optional: leave the starch to dry and the starch can be recovered and pressed into powder,
6. heat till boiling and leave for a minute and add 2 tablespoons of vinegar per 100g of dried peas,
7. leave for 20 minutes for the curds to settle,
8. very gently pour into four layers of cheesecloth and allow gravity to remove all the waste water,
optional: this waste water can be fermented and distilled for alcohol :P
9. gently squeeze the cheesecloth to extract the last bit of water,
10. the solids can be dried and ground to make the final protein powder powder,
this can be done with soy beans to make tofu or any other protein containing foodstuff, it basically separates out fats and soluble proteins.

Wow, I always wondered how this was done! Thanks for sharing this!

I like peas with cabbage in a frying condition. During winter season in my country, it is the best item for all of the members of our family.Also dried peas are favourite to me.

Hey i'm a raw vegan and just started eating soaked dried split peas along with the vitamins from the water. SHould be ok, you will find so many things on the net so i think common sense is what you should go by. i also soak organic rice and use the water for skin and hair and also drink it and eat the rice, same with quinoa but not for skin/hair. Basically u can soak or sprout any grain/said that is good and eat it. I eat soaked/sprouted chickpeas and lentils as well. I go back and forth if i should eat them with the sprouts or without and just soaked 24 hours or so.

Certain beans, if eaten uncooked, are poisonous. Red kidney beans and white kidney beans, in particular, should be boiled and fully cooked prior to eating: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phytohaemagglutinin
