Question: What can you tell me about pea protein and the benefits of this protein source in Halo Dog Food?

Answer: Pea protein is an excellent source of highly digestible vegetable protein. It is particularly rich in lysine and other essential amino acids which are critical for active pets to rebuild muscle tissue. Halo includes this in their foods as a way to naturally keep protein levels high without adding inferior sources such as meat meals or other rendered products.
