Split peas are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber. Dried split peas help lower cholesterol, they are also of special benefit in managing blood-sugar disorders since their high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after a meal, and provide good to excellent amounts of five important minerals, three B-vitamins, and protein—all with virtually no fat.
