For a good snack
The giant lupine beans of Vairano is an extraordinary
legume, it is full of protein and naturally gluten-free. Recently, it is
returning overwhelmingly on our tables, after it has been abandoned from great
producers because of its low economic performance.
Thanks to its
great dimension, this legume is also called “lupinone di Vairano” (big lupine
bean of Vairano), “gigante di Vairano” or “lupinaccio”. It is mostly known in
the area of Vairano, on the border between Campania and Lazio, where sour soils
with volcanic origin fulfil plant’s needs and permit it to grow.
Lupines are greatly used in vegetarian diets, since
their protein content can be compared to that of soy, eggs and meat. Their use
is ample: they can be a main ingredient in the preparation of vegetarian
hamburger, breaded cutlets or soup; a seasoning for pasta and a good ingredient
in aperitifs or finger foods.
Lupines are rich
in fibres, which help the regular operation of intestine; they also enhance the
purification of the body and the elimination of toxins.

beans in a glass jar of 220ml, ready to use. Vairano giant lupine beans are
preserved using no artificial preservatives.
