A cup of green peas contains about 8 grams of protein, which isn’t bad for a plant-based food. Since peas are lactose- and gluten-free, pea protein powder is an increasingly popular supplement, especially among those with allergies or intolerances. One scoop of pea protein powder packs more than 20 grams of protein, similar to its whey and soy counterparts. In addition to powder, some foods are being fortified with pea protein, like Beyond Meats Beyond Beef Crumbles, a beef-flavored, vegan, and non-GMO snack that contains 10 grams of protein per serving.
