Lupin = nutrition & good health

Sweet Lupin is uniquely high in protein (up to 40%) and dietary fiber (30%) low in fat (6%) and contains minimal starch and therefore has very low Glycemic Index (GI). In terms of nutritional and health benefits on offer, lupin bean is an attractive ‘GM free’ alternative to soybeans.

The protein and fiber components have excellent functional properties and can be used in various processed forms, including in a range of highly palatable bread and baked goods, meat products and beverages.

However, the most exciting story to emerge is lupin’s amazing attributes with regard to health and in particular obesity and the metabolic syndrome, which includes a cluster of factors such as high blood pressure, insulin resistance and elevated blood cholesterol.

Lupin enriched foods deliver on:

Feeling full longer                                                                                                                               

Subjects reported a significant decrease in hunger between meals.
Controlling blood sugar levels                                                                                                            

Lupin flour inclusion into white bread significantly reduces the blood glucose response and the insulin response.

Improving blood cholesterols                                                                                                               

Lupin fiber acts as a soluble fiber and drops total cholesterol without affecting the HDL cholesterol. Lupin proteins have also been shown to beneficially modify serum lipid profiles by stimulating liver cells to take up and degrade LDL cholesterol.

Lowering blood pressure                                                                                                                   

Lupins are one of the best natural sources of the amino acid – arginine, which is thought to improve blood vessel performance. Recent studies indicated that including lupin in the diet assists with hypertension.

Prebiotics for Improved bowel health                                                                                      

Lupin foods reduce transit time, lower the colon pH thereby reduces the colorectal cancer risk, and act as a ‘pre-biotic’.
