Pisum sativum is a plant which bears a long-shaped seed pod, botanically regarded as a fruit, and each pod contains 5-10 seeds, which are commonly known as peas. The pea has a long history of use as a food source. There are records that pea has been consumed since the late Neolithic era, and in Medieval Europe, dried peas were eaten as a porridge. Eating fresh peas is considered part of a more modern cuisine. Today, fresh peas are eaten boiled or steamed, flavored with salt, pepper or mint as a side dish. Frozen peas are one of the most popular convenience vegetables. Peas are a good source of vitamins and minerals, with high levels of vitamin C, calcium, and vitamin K. They also contain protein, dietary fiber and sugars.
P. sativum was used as traditional medicine to reduce cholesterol, ease constipation and to promote health. The anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties of P. sativum has been studied, and it is reported that P. sativum contains several anti-fungal proteins. Phytoalexins of P. sativum, which are anti-microbial and anti-oxidative substances synthesized by plants when they’re infected by pathogens, contributes to the anti-microbial activity against Helicobacter pylori and acne bacteria.
