lling). Alternatively, they are destroyed by low pH/acid
treatment or through cooking. More specifically to dogs
and cats, there are no references to the genetic disorder
that leads to favism - it is specific to humans. But there
are some reports of vomiting, diarrhea and lethargy when
dogs were permitted to eat raw faba beans in the pod.  

Research for potential use in pet
foods
Recently, dehulled faba beans were explored extensively for their use in pet foods at levels from 10% to
30% of the diet. In this work, it was demonstrated that
when faba beans replaced rice and corn gluten meal in
an experimental diet and fed to dogs, digestibility and
stool consistency were acceptable at all levels, though at
the higher amounts (30%) stool volume and defecation
frequency increased and stool scores tended to decline
(get soft). Further, at the higher levels, diet digestibility
declined slightly.
No differences were noted among the treatments for
blood count or chemical anomalies as all results were
within normal reference ranges for each dog, serving as
further confirmation that the condensed tannins were
not an issue physiologically. Finally, palatability was
slightly lower at the higher levels in the diet. Faba beans
have a unique earthy flavor that people notice when they
are included in snacks; perhaps the dogs picked up on

Briefly: top 5 takeaways

1

Faba beans have been found to
be a good source of protein and
starch.

2

Faba beans have anti-nutritional
properties that can be minimized
if managed properly.

3

According to research, when faba
beans replace rice and corn gluten
meal in a dog food diet, digestibility
is acceptable at all tested levels.

4

The ideal level of inclusion
appears to be just below 20% of
the diet.
