What do lupins give me?
They are typical of Mediterranean cuisine, and ideal on holidays to replace olives and other fatty foods on holidays.
Lupins for cholesterol
Due to their composition, lupins may be indicated, in moderation, in a diet to reduce cholesterol.
They also stand out for their high content of folic acid, which helps counteract the negative effects of homocysteine and prevents heart disease.
Lupins, like other legumes, contain certain amounts of purines, a product that is transformed into uric acid in the body. For this reason, people with hyperuricemia or gout should avoid taking lupins, as well as other legumes, when they have acute joint pain. (The high salt content also contraindicates lupins for these cases, since in case of gouty disease it is convenient to follow a diuretic and low-salt diet).
