Meat consumption is on the rise and alongside it, an increase in heart disease and obesity. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute in Freising have come up with a low-fat, high protein substitute for meat: the lupin.
It's a legume native to Germany that's been discovered only relatively recently as a food source. Researchers working on the texture and taste of lupin products have come up with some delicious and nutritious results. Whether it's sausages or pralines you're after, the lupin seems to offer it all.
