Hi ya'l, .... Here's our pretty flowers that been eaten for 3000 years.......(Lupinus albus m.) " Giant Lupine" ..Lupinus, commonly known as lupin or lupine,...., is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae. The genus includes over 200 species,....The species are mostly herbaceous perennial plants....Lupins have soft green to grey-green leaves which may be coated in silvery hairs, often densely so........Disclaimer - The herbal information on this post is intended for educational purposes.....The flowers are produced in dense or open whorls on an erect spike.... The pea-like flowers have an upper standard, or banner, two lateral wings, and two lower petals fused into a keel....."beautiful flowers".. ..Fun Facts: ...Today in Italy the cultivation of large seeded varieties is popular and throughout Italy “Lupini Beans” are offered as snacks in bars and before meals. Lupines are generally recognized as “inedible” by American gardeners.....The preparation of the final harvest is quite easy--the seeds are soaked for a day or two with water changes to leach out bitterness and the seeds are salted and enjoyed. Lupine seeds are extremely nutritious , and are high in protein(50%), dietary fiber and antioxidants, very low in starch, and, like all legumes, are gluten-free. Lupins can be used to make a variety of foods both sweet and savoury including everyday meals, traditional fermented foods, baked foods and sauces.... In Portugal, Spain, and Spanish Harlem, they are popularly consumed with beer. In Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Israel and Palestine, salty and chilled lupini beans are called termos and are served as part of an apéritif or a snack....In Europe lupine beans are commonly sold in a salty solution in jars...The seeds are also used for different foods, from vegan sausages to lupin-tofu or baking-enhancing lupin flour.... Lupins can be good companion plants in gardens, increasing the soil nitrogen for vegetables and other plants....In the late eighteenth century lupins were introduced into northern Europe as a means of improving soil......In the late eighteenth century lupins were introduced into northern Europe as a means of improving soil quality and by the 1860s the ‘Garden Yellow Lupin’ was seen across the sandy soils of the Baltic coastal plain....easy grow.... In Australian sweet lupins are high in protein, dietary fiber and antioxidants, very low in starch, and, like all legumes, are gluten-free. Lupins can be used to make a variety of foods both sweet and savoury including everyday meals, traditional fermented foods, baked foods and sauce...Consumed throughout the Mediterranean region and the Andean mountains, lupins were eaten by the early Egyptian and pre-Incan people and were known to Roman agriculturalists to contribute to the fertility of soils.....Whilst originally cultivated as a green manure or forage, lupins are increasingly grown for their seeds, which can be used as an alternative to soybeans. Sweet (low alkaloid) lupins are highly regarded as a stock feed, particularly for ruminants but also for pigs and poultry and more recently as an ingredient in aqua-feeds. The market for lupin seeds for human food is currently small, but researchers believe it has great potential. Lupin seeds are considered "superior" to soybeans in certain applications and there is increasing evidence for their potential health benefits. They contain similar protein to soybean but less fat. As a food source, they are gluten-free and high in dietary fiber, amino acids, and antioxidants, and they are considered to be prebiotic. About 85% of the world's lupin seeds are grown in Western Australia.... The first steps to truly transform the lupin into a contemporary, domesticated cropping plant were taken in the early twentieth century. Pioneered by German scientists, their goal was to cultivate a ‘sweet’ variety of lupin that didn’t have the bitter taste (due to a mixture of alkaloids in the seed) making it more suitable for both human consumption and animal feed. The successful development of lupin varieties with the necessary "sweet gene," paved the way for the greater adoption of lupins across Europe and later Australia.
