Split Peas are whole peas husked and split in half to increase surface area and speed cooking time. The Yellow Split Pea is about 1/4 of an inch wide and pale yellow in colour. Split Peas have a mild flavour and soft texture. The colour is the only difference between yellow and green split peas. Split peas are a nutrient-dense food, which means they contain a large amount of nutrients but are low in calories. Split peas are a good source of vitamins A and B, potassium and magnesium. Split peas are very low in fat and a good source of protein. A 1/2-cup serving of cooked split peas contains 115 calories.
