10% Off vs Single Packs – Lupin Flakes, Lupin Flour, Lupin Splits (Dal)
Australian Sweet Lupin (ASL) can be used in lots of daily foods – baking, making hummus/dips, beverages/smoothies, pancakes…you name it and you can use this flour as a very high protein kitchen essential, with over 40% protein and less than 4% digestible carbohydrate. All of our Lupins are from the species, Lupinus angustifolius which is a very different species to bitter (Alkaloids) tasting South American and some European lupin species. Following over 60 years of non-GMO adaptation, the ASL is a versatile and truly naturally sweet lupin flour, without the sugar.
Approx 95% of all sweet lupin is grown in Australia and of this, over 85% is grown in Western Australia (WA). Classic breeding comes from Mediterranean varieties which were introduced to WA during the early 1960s. Our lupins are harvested from the above-ground pods formed on the plant, cleaned and sized on-farm, followed by careful removal of the outer husk (lupin hull) which is mainly hemicellulose fibre. Then follows a triple colour analysis to make sure we have only the beautiful golden lupin endosperm. A multiple dry size reduction process then follows with the final step being to produce delicate and versatile flakes. The process is all done at a temperature not exceeding 36C, measured throughout the process by laser thermometers.
