Pea flour in dog food
Pea flour is a powder milled from roasted peas. In small amounts, pea flour can be a good dog food ingredient as it is rich in iron and calcium and is also high in fibre.
Pea flour also contains a high proportion of protein and is sometimes used in higher proportions as a protein supplement. Unfortunately, dogs cannot digest plant proteins as well as those found in meats so, as far as we're concerned, they should never take the place of good quality meat ingredients.
