Lentils have been part of the human diet for many thousands of years. They are amongst the earliest crops ever cultivated by human beings. It’s reasonable to assume then that they’ve been part of the canine diet for just as long. So while they’ve recently become more trendy in commercial dog food, lentils for dogs actually go way, way back in time.
Lentils are an excellent source of B vitamins, particularly folate or naturally occurring folic acid. They’re also rammed with iron, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and zinc. And they’re a good source of vitamin C and calcium.
Lentils are an ideal ingredient for any dog suffering from diabetes, high cholesterol or digestive problems. They can also benefit your dog’s immune system and help detoxify the body. So lentils don’t just look pretty. They’re a useful source of ingredients for your best friend as well.
I used red lentils in this turkey mince dog food recipe, although you can use any variety of lentils you like for your dog’s homemade dog food. You’ve certainly got plenty to choose from!
