Lupins Beans 

 

Lupins beans are a relatively little-known legume, previously produced mostly for animal feed, however lupins are now being increasingly recognised for their amazing nutritional benefits and versatility in food. Two types of lupin are produced in Australia – the Australian Sweet Lupin (ASL) and the Albus Lupin – more popular in the Middle East and Europe. The ASL is  round with a yellow speckled pigment whereas the Albus Lupin is white with a flattened, oval shape. Most of our lupin is produced in Western Australia, with around 85% of the world’s lupin being grown here!

Lupins are one of the richest sources of plant protein – providing a huge 40g plant protein per 100g – they’re also very high in dietary fibre – providing 27g fibre per 100g lupin. Lupins also provide lots of other essential nutrients wholesales including folate, calcium, magnesium, thiamin and zinc.
