You can enjoy a healthier version of your favourite recipes, by replacing 20-25% of the required plain flour with Irwin Valley Lupin Flour. You can’t go wrong!

If you are on a gluten-free diet, add Lupin Flour to a blend of flour you already enjoy using. Because of its oil content, Lupin Flour will work particularly well with flours that absorb a lot of water, like rice flour or potato flour.

*Gluten Free Recipes and oats.

Some of our recipes call for oat. Whether or not oat is suitable for a gluten-free diet is still controversial. Naturally, oat contains avenin, which is different to the type of gluten find in wheat, rye and barley, but that most people with Coeliac disease would be able to tolerate.

Then again, there is also a risk of cross-contamination between oat and other grains, which is why is does not apply to all oats available at your local shop.
