Lipids Albus 2

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.
