Australian Sweet Lupin, also known as narrow-leafed lupin (scientific name: Lupinus angustifolius), holds a unique and iconic status in Western Australia, where the vast majority of lupins are cultivated. The Mediterranean-style climate of this region is perfectly suited for the growth of this nutrient-rich crop. Remarkably, Western Australia alone accounts for 85% of the world’s lupin crop production.

Over the past six decades, lupin cultivation in Australia has undergone natural plant breeding processes, resulting in the development of a cultivar (Lupinus angustifolius) with minimal levels of bitter alkaloids. This transformation has led to a sweeter, neutral-tasting bean that no longer requires soaking in brine or cooking. Consequently, it can now be processed without heat treatment and consumed raw.
