Lupii (pronounced loopy) is a Lupini Bean based food company, unleashing the plant-powered protein we’ve all been searching for! With 3 times the amount of protein of quinoa, 3 times the amount of protein of eggs, 3 times the fiber of oats, and ALL 9 essential amino acids, this tiny bean is packing a serious nutritional punch. Not to mention, its also a super sustainable crop, compared to other plants out there.
Lupii began as a wildly simple and delicious, whole food, protein bar brand and just expanded into a variety of mouthwatering PASTAS, and the best part? Every Lupii product is non GMO, vegan, gluten free and soy free, so almost anyone and everyone can enjoy them, worry free! Bottom line, Lupii Lupini bean products are excellent for your body and even better for our planet and THAT is something I’m very excited about!
(It should be noted, as Lupini beans may not be not as well known as others- that they are apart of the Legume Family, just like peanuts. Additionally, Lupii products are made on shared equipment with peanuts and tree nuts. Sorry to my nut allergy friends, these foods may not be suitable for you.)
What’s so good about Lupini Beans?
The health benefits of the tiny, but mighty Lupini bean are truly a marvel of nature. I can’t help but wonder why I’d never heard of them before finding Lupii. BUT knowledge is power, especially when it comes to what you eat, so let me give you the sweet details on this amazing plant…
The bioavailable protein in this bean is very impressive. A recent study found that our bodies utilize Lupini protein at almost 80% the rate of egg protein. Lupini beans are more than ideal for keeping you feeling fuller, for longer, because of their super high fiber and protein combination.
The Lupini bean is packed with vitamins and minerals and is also considered a complete protein, just like meat or soy, due to its essential amino acid chain. It’s high fiber and low carbs have a low glycemic impact on your body as well, helping regulate your blood sugar levels. Lastly, Lupini beans have 3 times as much Potassium as bananas. Who knew!?
