Hydrolysed Pea Protein

Hydrolysed pea is a newer form of pea protein and is sometimes also referred to as instant pea or clear pea protein.

We at NZProtein believe that this product may be better than regular pea protein as a post workout source of protein because the amino acids in hydrolysed pea protein may be digested and utilised by the body faster.

Hydrolysis is the process where pea protein is further processed with enzymes to break down protein chains into smaller units which are "pre-digested" by the body, meaning they may bypass digestion and be absorbed by the blood stream faster.

This product is partially hydrolysed which also improves the texture and renders the taste more neutral than regular pea protein.


  • Less bitter, less grainy, and improved taste than regular pea protein
  • May have a greater rate of digestion and absorption than regular pea protein
  • May be better than regular pea protein for post exercise muscle repair
  • Plant based, lactose and gluten free.

How it's Made

Pea isolate that's further processed with enzymes to break down protein chains.

Golden peas are dried and ground, then mixed with water to remove the fibre and starch components.

Taste and Texture

Reduced graininess, improved taste compared to pea.

Slight graininess, thicker mixing than whey. Typical for plant based.

Speed of Digestion


(Estimated). Faster digesting than regular pea protein.


Plant proteins are slower digesting.


Slightly more than regular pea.

Cheaper than hydrolysed pea.


May be better than regular pea protein for pre/post exercise protein shakes.

Economical, all round plant based source of protein.

Benefits of Pea Protein

Pea makes a great alternative to whey and has many benefits:

  • Pea is vegan, hypoallergenic, and alkaline. Whey is not.
  • Whey can cause some people to get bloating and upset stomachs, whereas pea is easily digestible.
  • Plants proteins are slower digesting than animal sources so can make you feel full for longer and enable more prolonged absorption. This study has shown that slower digesting proteins can be more beneficial for long term muscle growth due to the way the body uses the amino acids.
  • Pea may also help to lower blood pressure and with kidney disease. "In people with high blood pressure [it] could potentially delay or prevent the onset of kidney damage." Source.
  • Pea contains minerals including iron, phosphorus, calcium, zinc, potassium and magnesium that can benefit your health.
  • Pea may help to improve glycemic control and balance blood sugar levels when paired with other foods.

It feels granular or sandy, but strangely, this is not bad. On the contrary, once you acquire this taste, you come for more. The double chocolate one dissolves well and tastes great, even better than the vanilla.

Have to share. I thought the Pea Protein was a game changer to other pea proteins I have had in the past but the Hydrolysed Pea Protein is up there on its own. Smooth, tasty, and delish. Also great value for the price and amazing service. Thank you.

Super low carb and dairy-free protein. Really great tasting strong flavours and not as grainy as other vegetarian protein options. Salted Caramel is my daily go to for lunch. Super filling and blends well with almond milk or stirred into yoghurt.

Been getting the standard pea protein for awhile, so thought I'd try the hydrolyzed pea protein... its completely smooth and so much easier to drink. I get it unflavoured and use a little honey to sweeten it as artifical sweeteners are all vile on my tastebuds... if you want a smooth dairy free powder, then this is what you want!

I bought the unflavored option and it's good to put in both smoothies and savoury recipes.

I prefer the taste to other protein. It is easier to mix and I would recommend the hydrolysed protein.

Very subtle sweetness and not sickening unlike other plant proteins. Makes it easy to down 4+ scoops a day. Probably the best plant protein I have tried. It still has the gritty texture but still easy to down.

Great taste and texture (Vanilla flavour). Much improved and worth the extra $ over the standard pea isolate.
Review by: Will on Thu, Feb 9, 2023 3:54 PM
This protein is great, much more smooth than standard pea protein and has a much milder flavour. Highly recommend.

Very similar flavour to the standard pea protein, still has 'that' taste! Mixes well, very smooth powder. Good flavour not sickly sweet.
Review by: Katie on Thu, Nov 24, 2022 8:27 PM
Very easy to mix (I use it with oat milk). Only slightly grainy in texture, but absolutely nothing to complain about. Vanilla option tastes very nice, which is the only flavour I’ve tried so far. Pea taste is still there but quite mild. Definitely one of the best pea proteins I’ve tried for ease of use and pleasant flavour. I’ll be buying again.
