Managing blood sugar levels:

Diabesity is a serious issue and the leading cause of chronic disease in the 21st century. Low carb foods like Lupin are great for glucose management, which can prevent diabesity, high blood pressure and heart disease. There is substantial clinical evidence that suggests an average serve of 40g of lupin per day can improve many health issues such as obesity, diabetes, blood pressure, bowel and cardiovascular health.

Managing blood sugar levels:

Lupins are one of the highest natural sources of the amino acid arginine which has been implicated in having beneficial effects on endothelial function (improved blood vessel performance). However more recently lupin fibre has also demonstrated beneficial effects on blood pressure. 

Great Levels of Bio-Available Iron:

Lupins contain readily absorbed Iron, magnesium, potassium & calcium, and stacks up well when compared to other Pulses. 

Loves your Guts

The key to a healthy body and a healthy mind is a healthy gut. Lupins are packed with a special type of fibre called prebiotic fibre. In a nutshell, prebiotic fibre are non-digestible plant fibres that feed the probiotics or the good bacteria already live inside the large intestine. The more food, or prebiotics, that probiotics have to eat, the more efficiently these live bacteria work and the healthier your gut will be!

Being a legume – not a grain, Lupins are completely gluten free and are processed in a 100% gluten free environment.

Lupins are perfectly suited to WA’s Mediterranean style climate meaning they’re not a drain on resources like water and production has a minimal carbon foot-print. Growing these non-GMO legumes play an important role in maintaining the ecological balance of agriculture by restoring nitrogen to soils, creating a better environment for the growth of other crops.
