Our CrossPro Pea & Hemp protein combines quality ingredients to give a balanced amino acid profile alongside a high protein content in a low sugar formulation. It is 100% plant-based, suitable for vegans, and contains essentially fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. It is designed for athletes looking for a high protein plant-based supplement that is great for their body and great for the planet!
It’s common knowledge that protein is an essential part of any diet, and it is particularly important for athletes, even more so for high intensity athletes like those of us who live and breathe CrossFit. The high intensity workouts that we do, and the fact that we demand a lot from all muscle groups due to the diversity of movements that we learn, mean we require high amounts of protein. To achieve our best physical condition we require a balanced array of vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, whilst paying attention to our intake of fats, cholesterol and lactose. All this information is vital to apply when formulating a product for CrossFit athletes.
CrossPro Pea & Hemp combines the very best of plant-based science to provide high amounts of protein without any of the drawbacks of animal-based products. This makes it the perfect choice for those choosing plant-based products for ethical reasons and those making science-based choices about how to fuel their bodies.

Why pea protein?
Pea protein is naturally high in BCAAs (Branched-Chain Amino Acids), which are amino acids that the body is unable to synthesise and that are vital in muscle recovery. This, along with its very high protein content, makes pea protein a clear choice when formulating plant-based protein products. Peas belong to the legume family, and those used in our products are specifically obtained from the Pisum Sativum plant. This plant, as well as having a high protein content, is hypoallergenic, does not contain gluten or lactose and doesn’t present any of the hormone-related problems associated with soy protein. In addition to these benefits it is also low in fat and sugars, making it a nutritional product of excellent value.
Why hemp protein?
Hemp protein powder is rich in minerals, including magnesium, potassium, and calcium; as well as a wide variety of trace elements. It is considered one of the most complete proteins, since it has all the essential amino acids that the body cannot produce by itself, many of which are responsible for carrying out vital functions for the body. Hemp protein can stimulate an increase in physical energy as it contains vitamin complex B1, B2 and iron. These vitamins are also excellent for fighting tiredness and muscle fatigue, improving muscle tone and facilitating recovery after training. The significant magnesium content of hemp protein powder also promotes bone health and stimulates protein synthesis.
Produced by Athletes for Athletes
This statement is used far too much, but as it is completely true for us, we are proud to use it here! We ourselves are athletes, and many of us follow a plant-based diet and as well as use plant-based medicines. We use our products every day and have developed them based on feedback from the athletes around us at our local gyms and boxes.
We got feedback from athletes about what was important to them, both in terms of ingredients and nutritional content, but also regarding product information and provenance. This led us to focus on quality ingredients, high protein content, simple but delicious flavours, and highly informative packaging. We are very proud of what we have achieved and CrossPro Pea & Hemp is currently available in a Chocolate-Cinnamon and Vanilla flavour, with all the key information an athlete wishes to know about a product displayed clearly on the label.
CrossPro Pea & Hemp is used by our Team CrossPro athletes alongside other products in our CrossPro Topical and CrossPro oil drops ranges.
