Lupin, a legume in the peanut family, can cause allergic reactions, including potentially life-threatening anaphylaxis, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns in a consumer update posted on its Web site August 15.

Lupin, sometimes called lupine, is relatively new to the US market, the FDA notes. Some Americans may not be aware of this legume, which can be found in packaged food products and in the form of lupini beans at Italian and other ethnic specialty stores.

"For many people, eating lupin or a lupin-derived ingredient, such as a flour, is safe. But there are reports in the medical literature of allergic reactions to lupin, some of which can be severe," Stefano Luccioli, MD, a senior medical advisor at the FDA, says in the update.
