Pea Fiber as a dog food ingredient

Fresh deboned beef.

This is also a great source of protein and is higher in protein concentration than raw beef.

Peas are healthy, grain-free filter alternative that contain complex carbohydrates, fiber, protein, phytonutrients, antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. They are also rich in protein and high in fiber.

Lutein in peas is an anti-oxidant good for heart, skin, and eye health. Sterols content in peas help lowering cholesterol. However, peas may be related to Canine Heart Disease and FDA is actively investigating this. 93 percent of reported foods in DCM cases contained peas and/or lentils.

Again due to the lack of grains in this diet, pea flour has been included to boost carbohydrate levels without adding gluten. Pea flour is also an excellent source of vegetable based protein and certain antioxidants.
