LIFE-GIVING TO THE EARTH

  • Sweet lupins have long been used to regenerate soils.
     

  • Returns airborne nitrogen into the soil.
     

  • Releases existing soil phosphate for plants.
     

  • Significantly reduces GHG emissions and the need for fertilizers.
     

  • Capable of growing in poor soils, requires no irrigation and are non-GMO.

NUTRITIONAL POWERHOUSE

  • Nature’s richest source of combined protein and fibre.
     

  • Sweet lupins delivers up to 43% protein, 30% dietary fibre and low carbohydrates.
     

  • Containing all nine essential amino acids.
     

  • Excellent source of unsaturated fats, natural emulsifying properties and the lowest GI of any seed regularly consumed by humans.
     

  • Nutritional properties required to create an excellent plant-based meat alternative.

HEALTH AND WELLNESS

  • Extensive research by medical scientists and dietitians confirms that consuming sweet lupins benefit heart and bowel health, diabetes and weight management.
     

  • Assists diabetics by lowering post-digestion glucose rise and daily mean insulin levels.
     

  • Improves heart health by lowering blood pressure and LDL cholesterol.
     

  • Improves bowel health by reducing transit time, lowering the colon pH and acts as a prebiotic.
     

  • Increases satiety (fullness) and a corresponding lower intake of calories.

ONE PROCESS… NATURALLY FERMENTED

PRECISION PREPARATION

  • Eighth Day Foods has developed a unique precision preparation of the sweet lupin.
     

  • Retains the full nutritional value and functional qualities.
     

  • Dramatically improves sensory properties during the fermentation process.

NATURALLY ENHANCED

  • The traditional solid-state fermentation further transforms the complex macronutrients such as carbohydrates, protein and lipids by naturally breaking them down into simpler forms, enhancing their bioavailability.
     

  • Our unique fermentation imparts an end-product with optimum taste, mouthfeel, aroma, juiciness, and structure.
