Lupin

lupinLupin is a legume and can be found in a wide range of food products including bread, bakery items, pasta, sauces, meat-substitutes and meat products such as burgers and sausages. Less than one percent of the Australian population is believed to have a lupin allergy.

A small number of people who are allergic to peanuts are also allergic to lupin.

To make eating out a little easier, A&AA has developed a chef card. You can write or print your allergens on the card. When telling the wait staff at a cafe or restaurant about your allergies, hand over your chef card and ask it to come back with your specially prepared meal. You can also obtain chef cards from our online shop.
