I keep getting different info on the internet so what's the truth? I found one site that says it is fine to just grind them up no need to cook them I think there was a site that said soak and/or sprouting would get ride of that one toxin that affects the blood(will look up the spelling later) Another said that there is an inhibit(again will look up them later) that is will lessen the digestibility but then another said the amount present isn't enough. Problem one is I can't find consistent info and none of the sites beside the one that says boil them tell me what state the peas need to be in before you use them as feed. Only fresh, dried, rehabilitated, soaked fresh, boiled. Problem two I can't figure out if peas are better to feed them beans got a few sites saying peas don't have a toxin beans do. I also read that the species matters and the ones that are toxic are the ones we don't eat anyway.
