Is it true that lupine grains are free from gluten?

Yes, this is true. Besides being a food that’s gluten-free, lupine grains are considered an excellent type of pulses which is a rich source of proteins and fibres as well as a good source of vitamins and minerals. Lupine grains also contain slowly absorbed complex carbohydrates in addition to unsaturated fats that are beneficial to the heart and vessels. On the other hand, and since they are naturally free from gluten, lupine grains constitute an interesting choice for people being sensitive to gluten consumption. In addition, and since they are rich in proteins, lupine grains are a good alternative to meat in the case of vegetarians.

On the other hand, we should note that lupine grains are used to extract a yellow flour that is used in the production of some pastries, some biscuits and some types of special breads to which they impart a delicious flavour and an attractive and very appetizing yellow colour.

Caution! It is recommended for people allergic to peanuts that they be wary of lupine grains and flour too. They must always seek their doctor’s advice in this regard.
