Should the Pea Protein be stored in the refrigerator? - We do not recommend storing the Pea Protein in the refrigerator as it may draw dampness. We do suggest storing it in a cool, dry location such as a cupboard.

Are there any milk products produced on the same lines as the Pea Protein? - The same facility and equipment may be used on occasion to process whey, but the equipment undergoes a thorough allergen cleansing after the whey is processed so no cross contamination will occur. We recommend the plain for anyone with serious allergies to milk as we cannot control the flavoring companies allergen program.
