Dikotylon black-eyed peas are rich in the amino acids lysine and threonine, which are substances necessary for the formation of proteins. Black-eyed peas give successful protein combinations with cheese or yogurt, and wheat bread or sesame paste.
Their qualities are plentiful: These pulses – with the funny name “ampelofasoula” at their green tender age - are endowed with many minerals and trace elements, such as potassium, copper, calcium, phosphorus, manganese, and iron (high conciseness). They are a good source of folic acid and they contain soluble fibers, which help to lower cholesterol, and protease inhibitors, which prevent the growth of cancer cells. They also provide abundant vitamin B1 (thiamine), which helps in the production of energy and good functioning of the brain.

Ideal for a macrobiotic diet: Black-eyed peas are an excellent option for a macrobiotic diet, one comprised exclusively of plant food that is non-processed.
The pulses featured in our collection are selected and packaged by ‘Fenea Land’ and have been produced in Feneos, a 600m high mountain valley nestled between the 2,400m peaks of Helmos and Zyria in the north Peloponnese, where the rich and fertile land adds its own flavour to the environmentally produced products – land blessed by the gods through Artemis and Hercules.
The produce comes from local small-scale farmers, all of whom are land and product registered, who have developed their skills of cultivation from generation to generation, so ensuring the unique strains of the seeds used to provide the ultimate in terms of both quality and taste.
