Since this is turning up in pet foods, I thought I'd share this article.  Wonder if it will have positive effects for cats or dogs.

Maybe. Until China starts adding melamine and cyanuric acid to it.

In cats this is already a very well known ALLERGY to nutrition minded vets. Undecided

Peas may be lower on the  glycemic index,   but according to this article ;

" Lower digestibility values for the lentil- and pea-based diets compared with those for the other starch sources were also described by other authors working with dogs, who attributed the differences between cereals and legumes to the starch and TDF compositions of the ingredients (Bednar et al., 2001Go). The elevated amounts of resistant and slowly digestible starches found in lentils (Cummings and Englyst, 1995Go) results in the slower digestion and absorption rates of this legume in humans (Lin et al., 1992Go).

The above is an article from Journal of animal Science it is on carbohydrate sources on diet digestibility, article mainly spoke about cats but also made reference to dogs as well.   In my opinion  from reading different articles peas may be a great sounding  carb but I do not believe peas  or pea starch are digested that great in cat or dog

That surprises me!   Huh  I thought that foods that were intended for cats with allergies usually DID contain peas instead if some other carbohydrate source like wheat or corn that were definitely prone to causing allergies.

Yeah, Mandycat. You're right, like NB Venison and green pea. Well, my cats seem to do fine with it. They're loving the new EVO sans potato. They replaced it with peas. Pip, my allergic kitty is doing well so far, but I've just been giving it to them a little bit per day, so we'll see what I get in the long term.

Yes .. but remember an allergy takes only two times of exposure... the RX foods did and then the OTC allergy foods decided to use it to mimic RX foods ... thus exposing MILLIONS to it and thus the explosion of allergic cats .... Remember the first "allergy" foods , they were lamb and rice;)... today you find a major issue with both ingredients

Well, that would be a new one for the cats. Not sure how it would go over. I think those beans taste like drywall.
