    White lupin (Lupinus albus L.) is one of the 200 species of lupins, a genus of multipurpose annual legumes grown throughout the world both for their seeds used in feed and food, and for forage. Lupin seeds can be an alternative to soybean in all livestock species due to their high content in good quality protein (in the 30-40% range).

    Amino acid composition and fatty acid composition were determined on seed samples of a range of white lupin (Lupinus albus) cultivars and accessions grown in either of two environments.

    Variability between genotypes was found for lysine, arginine and glutamic acid content, but not for the concentrations of other amino acids. The deficiency in sulphurcontaining amino acids, typical of legume proteins, was evident, with methionine and cyst(e)ine totalling only 2.2% of the protein.
