Product Description


Abstract
The leguminous speciesLupinus mutabilis(tarwi) is cultivated traditionally in the Andes above 1,500 m, from
Venezuela to Chile and Argentina. The seeds are used for food, being among the most important globally
with respect to protein and oil content. However, the seeds need a processing before consumption due to
anti nutritional substances which work in the plants’ chemical self-defense against insects. The most
important of these substances are the alcaloids sparteine, lupinine and lupanidin, which actually are used to
control bugs and gastrointestinal worm in domestic animals. Industrially, the flour of tarwi is added with up
to 15% to bread-making, improving the energy and protein value, as well as conservation of the bread due
to retrogradation of starch. Because of the high oil and protein content the crop is considered to be the soybean
of the Andes. Added to these qualities are easy preparation and low cost. A set of recipes are given for dishes
and drinks involving tarwi.
