GroPro manufactures Swedish protein and starch concentrates from peas and other legumes grown in Swedish fields. We do it completely without chemicals and other additives using a unique and very energy-efficient process. Our protein concentrates contain around 50 percent protein of very high quality and are highly palatable.
Our main product is pea protein from high-quality green peas grown in the Skåne region and the southern Halland region. Our supplier of peas is Foodhills in Bjuv, which, in addition to supplying GroPro, has an extensive production of canned peas in southern Sweden. All farms are certified according to IP Svenskt Sigill (the Swedish Seal). After the peas have been dried to a water content of around 15 percent, they are brought into our facility and peeled, after which protein and starch are separated from each other and enriched into a concentrate in a completely dry process without the addition of chemicals.
Our pea protein contains around 50 percent protein and has a very good composition of amino acids. Half of the amino acids are essential, and all essential amino acids are included. The highest levels are the contents of Glutamic acid, Aspartic acid, Arginine, Lysine and Leucine. The last three are of interest to athletes; Arginine plays an important role in building muscle fibres and is an essential amino acid for children. Lysine is needed for the metabolism of proteins in the body.
GroPro also offers pea protein from organically grown and KRAV-certified peas. Several of our growers have KRAV-certified their farms. This means, among other things, that the peas are grown completely without commercial fertilisers and pesticides. Since we do not use any chemicals in our enrichment process, our finished concentrate is naturally an approved organic product that can be KRAV-labelled. Protein content and amino acid composition are of the same good quality as in GroPro’s other pea concentrates.
