Lupin flour protects heart
You can lower your risk of heart disease significantly, just by using flour containing 40 per cent lupin beans in the place of conventional wholemeal flour, according to research by Victoria University dietitian Dr Regina Belski and colleagues from the University of Western Australia.
Over the course of a year, working with the Centre for Food and Genomic Medicine in Perth, the researchers monitored more than 100 overweight, but otherwise healthy, Western Australian men and women to whom they provided everyday foods made either with wholemeal flour or incorporating lupin flour.
“Consuming lupin flour lowered blood pressure and reduced the risk of heart disease,” she said. “It’s as simple as that.”http://www.sciencealert.com.au/news/...est+Stories%29
Not all lupins are equally edible. Some are more toxic than others.
That doesn't even look like Lupin seeds. Hmmm, and lupin is pretty darn toxic. What scientific name is supposed to be here???

It's just my 2 cents,

Our native Texas lupines, Bluebonnets, are toxic. Plants for a Future lists several species of Lupin, one Lupinus mutabilis given 5 stars for edibility. http://www.pfaf.org/user/Plant.aspx?...inus+mutabilis
