What is Lupin?
Lupin is a legume, which grows similar to a pea in a pod, but is harvested in the same way as wheat.
Our Australian grown lupin is odourless and chemical free.
The benefits of lupin are that it retains heat longer than wheat and is 30% lighter. Lupin doesn’t sweat, allowing your heat pack to last longer.
