Australian Scientists See Lupin Bean As Next Superfood

October 8, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
Largely unknown in the U.S., lupin beans are a natural nutritional powerhouse, according to researchers at Edith Cowan University (Perth, Western Australia), who see lupin's "huge potential" as the next superfood. Packed with more protein than any other legume, lupins “can combat heart disease, reduce blood glucose levels, and reduce inflammation in the body," says researcher Arineh Tahmasian, who helped identify more than 2,500 different lupin proteins. In Canada, they are labeled “lupini beans,” and offered as a bar snack “in a bowl, salted." Unfortunately, to get to that stage, they need to be washed, soaked in brine, and boiled for a long time to get rid of the bitter alkaloids and render them edible.
