Split peas are a high-protein legume, rich in fiber and packed with vitamins and minerals. They are a great source of fiber and help manage your blood sugar levels. A single cup of split peas provides 65 percent of your daily fiber needs. They’re also a great source of protein, offering 16 grams in that same cup — and only 231 calories.
These humble legumes also have some mighty vitamin powers: 12% of your daily vitamin K, 25% of your thiamin
32% of your folate needs. Additionally, the thiamin and high fiber content found in split peas help manage blood sugar. Thiamin supports heart and brain health, as does folate.
