Roll over quinoa!
With 40% protein, 37% dietary fibre, no gluten and only 4% carbohydrate (plus a whole stack of other goodness) Revolupin Lupin Flakes are the new super tasty, Australian-grown powerfood that’s packing a serious nutritional punch.
Hailing from the same family as chickpeas and lentils, this tasty little legume is one the world’s richest natural sources of combined protein (40%) and dietary fibre (37%). They also contain minerals, including potassium, magnesium and iron, minus the gluten and carbs (only 4%). While most high protein foods (from animals) can be full of fats, and high fibre foods come loaded with carbs, Lupin Flakes are extra special because they have higher nutritional benefits of other legumes and other healthy grains; plus are extremely low in energy (kJ) (only 1350kJ/100g compared to oats 1572kJ/100g, quinoa 1539/kJ/100g, and chickpeas 1619kJ/100g).
Legumes are becoming increasingly popular due to their excellent nutritional value along with their beneficial qualities for sustainable agriculture.
However, while soybean and peanuts may be high in protein, they also come with the high fat content. Plus chickpeas, lentils and beans are moderately high in carbs.
Lupin Flakes are extra special because while they are extremely low in energy, they deliver double the protein of most legumes. Lupin Flakes contain 40g/100g protein compared to lentils 26g/100g, chickpeas 22g/100g and cannellini beans 22g/100g.
Lupin Flakes have a unique combination of low carb, gluten free plant-based protein and prebiotic fibres with high levels of bio available essential amino acids and minerals. This makes them ideal for improving health issues arising from today’s modern diet, such as diabesity, hypertension, gut health and cardiovascular health.
