The seeds from some types of lupin can be used in foods such as seeded bread, and lupin flour is used in other foods such as pastries. Lupin usage in Australia has been increasing due to its high protein and fibre content.

In the last few years, lupin ingestion has been recognised as a cause of allergic reactions in some individuals. Since May 2018 in Australia, lupin must be declared on the labels of any food that contains it.

Foods that do not contain lupin can still be at risk of contamination, and appropriate allergen management programs can help prevent this. Part of the management program may include testing for the presence of lupin in ingredients, in finished products and even on food contact surfaces.

Two kits from Romer are now available. AgraQuant Lupin is available for the detection and quantification of lupin, with results available in just 60 min. AgraStrip Lupin is also available for the detection of lupin, with results available in under 15 min.

Romer AgraQuant and AgraStrip kits are available from AMSL Scientific.
