About Lupinus angustifolius

Lupins are grain legumes that form an integral part of sustainable farming systems and have been an important part of the human diet for thousands of years. Planted in rotation with cereal crops, lupins reduce the need for nitrogenous fertilizer, provide valuable disease breaks and boost cereal yields. Lupins thrive on low-nutrient soils due to their ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen in symbiosis with beneficial bacteria and efficiently take up phosphorus from soils. Consequently, they are effective ecological pioneers and able to colonize extremely impoverished soils such as coastal sand dunes and new lava soils set down by recently erupted volcanoes. Narrow-leafed lupin (Lupinus angustifolius) is gaining popularity as a health food, which is high in protein and dietary fibre but low in starch and gluten-free [1].
