Raw grains    and legumes contain lectins, a kind of protein that acts as a protection for plants that grow in the wild. Plants use this passive defensive mechanism to keep themselves safe from predators during their early stages.

They function by making the predator feel uncomfortable through vomiting, diarrhea and nausea.
