Lupins are “beans” and belong to the legume family along with lentils, chickpeas, kidney beans etc. However they are nutritionally superior to other legumes (being much higher in plant protein, fibre, nutrients and much lower in carbs) and have some super health benefits. Lupins are natural appetite suppressants; they help to regulate blood sugars, lower cholesterol, blood pressure and can help improve your gut microbiome. For more info click here.
