Product description

Sicilian Split Peas

Format: 400 g

Soaking : 45'/60'

Sicilian split peas are green legumes with a semi-spherical shape.

The high level of simple sugars and the absence of bitter principles contained in other legumes give them a sweetish flavour.


Sicilian split peas are energetic and nutritious legumes, in the kitchen they are generally used in delicious soups and stews.

Peas are very ancient legumes that date back to around 5000 years ago. Italy is one of the main producers and in our country they are among the most used legumes and also appreciated by children.

Dry but with a sweet taste, Sicilian Split Peas are rich in properties.

Benefits and Properties

  • Digestive system: thanks to the very small concentrations of starch, peas are very well digestible. The peel acts as a scavenger inside the digestive system and helps the intestines work better.
  • Diabetes : peas can stabilize blood sugar levels, bringing benefits to those at risk of diabetes. However, if diabetes has already manifested itself, it is better not to consume them due to the high concentration of sugars, even simple ones. Disorders related to menopause: peas contain phytoestrogens capable of soothing the symptoms of menopause.
  • Bones : peas contain a lot of iron and phosphorus capable of fixing calcium and nourishing nerve cells.


The Terravecchia family, producers of our Sicilian Split Peas , has been known in Sicily since the 1950s for various entrepreneurial activities, among which the production of chickpea flour stands out, an essential ingredient of the famous Palermo ''panelle''.

For thirty-five years now, in the new role of selectors, packers and distributors of dried legumes, it has represented a reality in the Sicilian distribution panorama, proudly carried forward by a new generation of women, with the support and experience of family members.

From the idea of ​​selecting and re-evaluating the excellence of Sicilian agricultural production, which risked disappearing forever, the ''sun and taste of Sicily'' line was born : a selection that on a gastronomic level can represent this wonderful island in the world through its smells, its fragrances and flavors.
