WHAT ARE LUPINS?

Lupin is a pulse, commonly known as a legume.

 

A sustainable crop that returns nitrogen to the soil.

Lupins have been part of the Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and European diets for centuries.

Today in Australia, we use them as a gluten free and nutritional alternative to flour.

With a mild taste, lupins are a fantastic base for both sweet and savoury LOKA Foods.

Good for people and good for the planet!

SUSTAINABLITY

Aussie grown in the Riverina region of NSW, LOKA’s Lupin supplier supports rural farming communities and embraces sustainable farming practices. 

 

Lupin production has a minimal carbon footprint.

Growing these non-GMO legumes play an important role in maintaining the ecological balance of agriculture by restoring nitrogen to soils, creating a better environment for the growth of other crops. 

Lupin contributes to sustainable agriculture:

  • Boosts Soil Quality

  • Requires much less water than other crops

  • Fertilizes soil and provides food for animals

  • Naturally repels pests, and requires no pesticides
