Snow peas and sugar snaps; what's the difference?
On the nutritional panel, there’s not much between these two pea types and their garden- variety cousins. Snow peas are flat-sided while snaps are more rounded. Unlike garden peas, which require shelling, these are eaten pod and all. If you’re feeling a bit fancy, call them mange tout, which is French for ‘eat all’. Enjoy raw or cooked – either way, they’re delish.
Packing a punch
One cup of peas contains more protein than a tablespoon of peanut butter, but a 10th the fat!
Did you know...
Peas are technically a fruit, since they are the seeds from the pod of a flowering plant.
