Tarwi Lupin Beans deliver double the protein of most legumes and triple that of quinoa!
In their natural state, lupins contain 40g protein per 100g! Compare that to lentils at 26g and both chickpeas and cannellini beans at 22g protein content per 100g.
Lupins are one the world’s richest natural sources of combined dietary fibre (37%) and protein (40%).
With 3x more dietary fibre than oats, 40g of lupins actually delivers 50% of one’s daily fibre needs.
3x more iron than kale and 3x more antioxidants than berries!
And high in other minerals including potassium, calcium and magnesium. The lupin bean’s antioxidant profile includes lutein and zeaxanthin.
Help us start the revolution
If we do our job well, we will be the catalyst for lupin consumption to grow. And increased demand, increases production, which creates healthier soil and overall better produce. This is what allows us to fulfil our aim of being good for people and the planet.
Using low water consumption to grow lupin plants.
Lupin plants are continually increasing nitrogen in the soil. Therefore eating Tarwi helps to create better soil.
More lupin eating means more lupin planting, which means better agricultural yields in our organic fields.
Eat it with the shell.
Eat the whole thing. All of the fibre content is in the shell, so make the most of the prebiotic goodness. Keep it on and pop it in.
Eat it without the shell.
If you’re still not convinced on the shell, or want a lower-fibre snack, by all means take the shell away! Simply bite the corner of the shell and squeeze it to pop the bean out.
You do you!
Tarwi Lupin Beans are an easy on-the-go snack or they can be healthy protein topper on a main meal. Get adventurous with cooking lupin beans. The options are endless!
Let's be honest, healthy eating can be pretty exhausting. Between the overload of information, the revolving door of diets and the lack of clarity on what actually works, it's easy to be put off.
We've been there. So we made it our purpose to normalise access to healthier foods by creating high quality products that are full of natural flavour, convenient and easy to understand.
Our journey started with lupin beans... because we grew up eating them, and because it is the best plant protein we could find. That part was simple, finding organic lupin beans less so! But we’re not the kind to give up easily. We found a worldclass lupin researcher (we're not kidding...) and a small producer of organic certified lupin beans, and got to work, knowing that it would be tough to build that value chain, but it was the right thing to do.
To fulfil our purpose we also adapted the lupin beans for you, the modern consumer:
• We added taste with salt, chilli and basil, not ‘flavours’... actually the real thing.
• We added convenience by substituting the traditional brine with individual pouches that you can take anywhere.
• We made them easier to eat by finding lupin beans with a shell so soft you can eat the whole thing.
• We kept things simple by having only three ingredients plus a natural acid that preserves all the nutrients.
We know we can't create a revolution alone, so we strive to build lasting relationships with our customers, our partners and our suppliers. And because we want to do things right by everybody, we’re committed to be a purposeful business and a B Corporation (pending). We are ambitious but simple and down to earth. At the core, we are authentically human.
Organic Snacks. For good.
