Description

WHAT IS IT?

Salengei Lupin Flour comes from the Lupinos albus, a legume related to broad beans. A toasting process makes the flour obtained from it become easily digested. Its light and neutral taste means it can be mixed with both sweet and savoury meals. It is noted for its hight content of organic vegetable protein and fibre, making it ideal for a regular bowel. 

WHAT DOES IT DO?

Lupin flour is rich in protein (43%), and contains 28% fibre, most of which is insoluble (the most suitable for regulating the intestinal transit). It also contains fermentable oligosaccharides which enhance the laxative effect of the fibre.
