Bettas are not vegetarians and their bodies do not process peas. Not to mention their stomachs are literally the size of their eye. A pea is much bigger than their eye.
It is best to just not feed the betta for 24 or 48hrs to reset their GI tract.

Yes but when we eat/chew food it condenses down much smaller than what it is in our hands. That and our stomach and expand to almost three times it's original size.

I and many users here support not feeding bettas peas. Size has only a small part as to why they shouldn't be fed peas.
