Pea Protein in Pet Food

By admin-1   |   July 31, 2018   |   Categories: Ingredients, Nutrition, Proteins   |   Tags:

Pea protein is almost a near perfect protein of essential amino acids, plus pea protein provides additional vitamins, minerals and fiber that a pet needs in its daily diet. However, peas are lower in a few important amino acids; methionine, tryptophan, and valine. This means that other sources of these amino acids must be supplemented from other natural proteins, such as meat, egg, or chemical sources to achieve a complete and balanced level to meet all of the pet’s nutrient needs.

The concern of excess phytoestrogen levels are of limited concern with the screening of the pea types, and effects of processing such as cooking and extrusion.
