Pass the peas please: Though peas contain carbohydrate, their high fiber and protein content slow digestion. This results in moderating blood glucose levels.They rate low on the glycemic index scale, which is a ranking of how carbohydrates affect blood sugar. You list irritable bowel syndrome as a condition. Peas are a soluble fiber, which promotes gentle regularity necessary for people with IBS. Hope this helps. Best.
