upins (Lupinus spp) are legumes, otherwise known as pulses. There are about 450 Lupinus species, with L. angustifolius and L. albus being the main species cultivated in Australia. While lupins have been predominantly used for animal feed, recent research has shown that eating them can provide health benefits for humans. The addition of sweet lupin flour to bread has been shown to reduce its glycaemic index, reduce energy intake and increase satiety of study participants compared with those who… 
Anticholinergic Toxicity Associated with Lupine Seeds Ingestion—A Case Report
A 40-year old woman who presented with blurry vision, nausea, abdominal pain, dizziness, disorientation, and severe mouth dryness for one hour prior to presentation was admitted for observation for 24 hours and her symptoms resolved spontaneously.
Anticholinergic toxicity associated with ingestion of water containing lupini bean extract
Bitter varieties of lupinus albus predominate in Europe, and derive their bitter flavor from a high content of quinolizidine alkaloids.
Anticholinergic toxicity in a one-year-old male following ingestion of Lupinus mutabilis seeds: case report.
The seeds from Lupinus mutabilis Sweet provide nutritional benefits when consumed, but people need to know their risks when these seeds are consumed without proper preparation.
Bitter lupine beans ingestion in a child: a disregarded cause of acute anticholinergic toxicity
A 6-year-old girl brought to the emergency department for the sudden onset of anticholinergic syndrome after the ingestion of a few home-made partially debittered lupine beans complained of blurry vision, headache, photophobia and nausea.
Pupillary Disorders in the Emergency Room: Lupinus mutabilis Intoxication
Clinicians should consider the possibility of LM toxicity in cases of pupillary abnormalities without any clear alternative explanation, including lupinus toxicity in patients with isolated symptoms as well as hyporeactive mydriasis.
Anticholinergics Syndrome Related to Plants and Herbs
Plant tropane alkaloids – atropine, scopolamine and hyoscyamine – are the common causes of this toxidrome when they enter the human body through GI absorption and/or skin contact.
Preparation and Evaluation of Gluten-Free Foods for Celiac People
This study was performed to prepare gluten-free cakes and crackers produced with different flours of rice, corn, and sweet lupin for celiac people and evaluate the effect of flours on chemical,
Lupanine Improves Glucose Homeostasis by Influencing KATP Channels and Insulin Gene Expression
Lupanine acts as a positive modulator of insulin release obviously without a risk for hypoglycemic episodes and improves glycemic control in response to an oral glucose tolerance test in streptozotocin-diabetic rats.
Scientific opinion on the risks for animal and human health related to the presence of quinolizidine alkaloids in feed and food, in particular in lupins and lupin‐derived products
This risk assessment is limited to QAs occurring in Lupinus species/varieties relevant for animal and human consumption in Europe, and the CONTAM Panel considers the risk for adverse effects to be low.

Anticholinergic Syndrome in Response to Lupin Seed Toxicity
A case of anticholinergic toxicity in a patient who ingested improperly prepared lupin seeds is described and the importance of taking patient herbal and food consumption into account in the differential diagnosis of toxic syndromes is highlighted.
Lupine allergy: not simply cross-reactivity with peanut or soy.
Australian sweet lupin flour addition reduces the glycaemic index of a white bread breakfast without affecting palatability in healthy human volunteers.
ASLF addition to standard white bread resulted in a palatable breakfast; however, the potential benefits of the lowered glycaemic index may be eclipsed by the increased insulinaemic index.
Lupin bean toxicity
This work aims to improve awareness of lupin alkaloid poisoning and its prevention and to report the first case reported in Australia.
Effect of fat replacement by inulin or lupin-kernel fibre on sausage patty acceptability, post-meal perceptions of satiety and food intake in men†
Both inulin and lupin-kernel fibre appear to have potential as fat replacers in meat products and for reducing fat and energy intake in men.
Lupin-enriched bread increases satiety and reduces energy intake acutely.
A novel food enriched in protein and fiber derived from lupin kernel flour significantly influences energy intake acutely.
Anticholinergic toxicity associated with lupin seed ingestion: case report
A case of acute poisoning in a 51-year-old female patient who presented to the Emergency Department with weakness, anxiety, dry mouth, bilateral mydriasis and lid drop was instead related to the ingestion of lupin seeds.
