Why Should I Buy This Product?

The type of lupin commonly grown in Australia comes originally from the Mediterranean region and produces seed in a pod similar to peas. Like peas, the lupin seed is quite high in protein and is suitable to be used in a range of foods.

Lupin Flour has many nutritional and health benefits that are not found in standard wheat flour. These include high levels of dietary fibre, low carbohydrate and sugar and it reduces appetite.

Most types of flour are made from cereal grains that contain high levels of starch and are relatively low in protein. Lupin Flour on the other hand does not have any starch content and is also gluten-free, which can be very beneficial for people who have a gluten intolerance.

Lupin Flour like peanuts and soybeans because Lupin seed, which the Lupin Flour is made from, belongs to the legume family as do peanuts and soya beans. A small number of people have an allergy to legumes with the effect varying depending on the species involved .

The Australian Sweet Lupin is high in protein (30% lupin seed, 40% lupin flour) like soybean but is significantly higher in dietary fibre (30%) and lower in oil (6%) and contains minimal starch. It therefore has a very low GI, which has significant implications for modern societies with an increasing incidence of obesity and associated risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Lupins (Australian Sweet Lupin & L. albus) have the lowest GI of any commonly consumed grains.

Low GI foods are known to:

  • Reduce liver cholesterol synthesis
  • Decrease serum Apolipoprotein B levels
  • Decrease 24h urinary C-peptide output
  • Higher satiety rating, control appetite
  • Lower post-digestion glucose rise
  • Reduce daily mean insulin levels
  • Lower total and LDL cholesterol levels
