if it winds up to be a viable alternative to soy and wheat then awesome.. more erm.. leaves in our vegan caps.

is lupin likely to be a problem for people with allergy to soy ?

sounds similar to soy , I've always wondered if other grains/sudo grains/ beans etc could contain high quality vege protein for new foods and mock meats etc

No but a fair number of people are allergic to it, especially people who are already known to be allergic to peanuts.

Visited the place and bought a few products.

Its a nicely set out little shop and the products are very tasty. A lot of it Japanese style mock meats, such as teriyaki.

Just wish they actually sold lupin beans or lupin products which arn't mock meat.

They also had some raw products like raw revolution bars. I tried them and like expected they tasted pretty crap.

The best lupini beans I've tasted are the ones called "Aishas Termis" usually sold at your local Whole Foods. They have different flavors, too. A bit pricey but can one put a dollar amount on health?

I looked this thread up for a British vegan bemoaning that he could not get the Quorn vegan burger or the fantastic Gardein faux meats. Unforutnatley the original link to the lupin bean faux meat producer expired.

However, that business has survived, so I thought I would post a link to his web site here since I already went to the trouble to look it up

I have tried some Lupin products - I'd say it's nicer than TVP or gluten in flavour. I bought a few items from Vegan World shop in Paris. Some were 'steak' style items, so quite big lumps of processed lupin. It holds together well and it's quite chewy, a bit dry perhaps, but cooked in a sauce it was good. The lupin kebab style pieces were great. (And I bought the best ever vegan 'cheese' slices there - well worth a visit: http://www.happycow.net/reviews/un-mond ... aris-32309)
