Here are some of the most important features we consider in snow peas we export:
Colour: The snow peas should have a saturated pale green colour. However, some may have white scarring as the seeds grow on the pods. Snow peas are often victims of bacterial and fungus diseases that lead to colour changes from green to grey. This colour change is often in highly humid areas. Here at FrutPlanet, we select only green snow peas for export.
Size: The snow peas should be thin because the seeds and pods haven’t fully formed. The ideal thickness is about 2 cm or three-quarters inches. The snow peas’ length is about 7cm or 3 inches. Frutplanet exporters harvest the snow peas before the seeds fully mature. That way, we ensure our peas are the best for exportation.
Skin Texture: Before harvesting the snow peas, we sample a few of them for the snap factor. We curve the pea so that they snap. Otherwise, we don’t harvest them if they curve perfectly. Additionally, we double-check the snow pea’s skin texture and ensure that they’re smooth and with no matches, cuttings, or insect sting patches.
Age: All our snow peas are harvested within the right timelines. We harvest them within two months to ensure that they don’t over-mature. Our snow peas are available all year long, whether in spring or summer. We have a wide network of farmers who guarantee quality and quantity.
Snow peas have enormous benefits for the body, and some of them include the following:
Bone Health: Snow peas are highly concentrated with vitamin K. This vitamin plays a crucial role in the skeletal system by processing calcium and adding it to the bone cells. Additionally, the vitamin helps the blood clotting process, helping the body heal faster. Therefore, snow peas protect the body from bone problems like fractures and osteoporosis, a condition that weakens the bones.
Boosts Body Impunity. One of the minerals in snow peas is beta-carotene and vitamin A. The two are essential in the growth of immune cells. More specifically, vitamin A helps protects the body from bacteria and viruses. It achieves this by supporting the growth and proliferation of white blood cells throughout the body. The vitamins A and C in snow peas work together to boost the immune system.
Keeps the Gut Healthy: Like any other legume, snow peas have a lot of insoluble dietary fibre. The fibre feeds the good bacteria in the digestive system, ensuring that the digestive system stays healthy and efficient. In addition, the fibre adds bulk to the food, which reduces the amount of food absorbed by the body. It ends up helping you reduce weight and relieve constipation.
Controls Blood Sugar: Experts, including the American Diabetes Association, advise that non-starchy vegetables such as snow peas control sugar levels. Snow peas have a high phytonutrient and fibre concentration, perfect for controlling and managing diabetes.
Promotes heart Health: One of the many nutrients snow peas are known to have vitamin C. This nutrient decreases the inflammation of blood vessels or the hardening of arteries. Snow peas’ potassium and vitamin C also cooperate to reduce blood pressure.
Aids Eyesight: Carotenoids are one the most beneficial nutrients in the body as it aids in promoting eyesight. Snow peas have lutein and zeaxanthin antioxidants, components of carotenoids. These components reverse vision loss and slow down the progression of age-related disorders.
We transport all snap harvest from the farm to the warehouse in wooden and plastic boxes via road. Once the fresh snow peas are in our warehouse, we remove foreign materials and physical defects. We eliminate all dirt from the snow peas and invite the phytosanitary authorities to examine the product before packaging.
