It really is hard to imagine a more remarkable product.

Just think about it, lupins are:

  • One of the highest sources of plant proteins available (40%).  That’s almost four (4) times higher than whole grain wheat;
  • One of the highest sources of dietary fibre (37%);
  • Easily digestible with high bio-availability of essential nutrients and minerals;
  • High in essential amino acids, cholesterol free and contain negligible amounts of trypsin inhibitors (known to interfere with digestion) often found in other legumes;
  • Very low in lectins and saponins (two known gastric irritants),
    the latter of which afflicts the soybean even after extensive baking and processing;
  • Convenient, healthy and don’t require heat or chemical treatment. [2]

Studies have revealed that Australian Sweet Lupins:

  • Suppress appetite;
  • Reduce the glycaemic load of carbohydrate based foods;
  • Reduce blood pressure;
  • Improve glucose metabolism (diabetes);
  • Improve bowel health;
  • Are prebiotic – promoting the growth of “good” bacteria;
  • Are very high sources of essential amino acids and;
  • Gluten free and non GM. [3]

[2] Lupins do contain a modest amount of bio-active sugars (around 8% oligosaccharide sugars).  Oligosaccharides are utilised as nutritional supplements to promote the growth of beneficial intestinal bifidobacteria (prebiotics) that improve the resistance to gastrointestinal infections caused by Escherichia coli, Clostridium and Salmonella
