What is yellow pea fiber?
Yellow pea fiber is a unique fiber from yellow pea hulls. Yellow peas are pulse crop, like lentils or chickpeas, and are grown in Alberta and other regions in Canada and Northern U.S.
Why yellow pea fiber?
Dr. Raylene Reimer (Professor of Nutrition in the Faculty of Kinesiology at the University of Calgary) conducted a randomized, double blinded, placebo controlled study to measure the impact of yellow pea fiber supplementation on metabolic syndrome. In this study, the participants that consumed 15 grams/day of yellow pea fiber in the form of cookies experienced the following:
- Significant weight loss, with no other intentional changes to their everyday diet
- Fat loss, while maintaining muscle mass. This is often a challenge in the weight loss process, as people tend to lose lean muscle along with fat when on a diet
- Improved insulin sensitivity, an important consideration since insulin resistance can contribute to weight gain
- An increased presence of Lachnospira bacteria. This is significant as it drops markedly with weight gain, but its abundance is linked to weight loss
- An increased presence of short-chain fatty acid metabolites linked with a healthy weight
- A decreased presence of fatty acids aligned with weight gain
- Elevated ketone bodies that help to suppress appetite, such as acetoacetate, 2-hydoxybutyrate, and 3-hydroxybutyrate
- Lowered triglycerides and LDL cholesterol
