Lupins are descended from the papilionaceous family and belong to the legume family. The plant is related to beans, peanuts and peas. Lupins are plants with colourful flowers and grow up to four metres high. Lupine seeds were already used as a staple food by the ancient Egyptians and Greeks. Nowadays, however, the lupine is mainly cultivated in Central Europe. Lupine seeds can be processed excellently into flour and are therefore ideally suited as a cereal flour alternative - thus of course super suitable for people who suffer from gluten intolerance.
