Allergy Today: New Lupin Advice for Sanitarium Products 

From April, Lupin will be listed as a potential cross-contact allergen on a range of Sanitarium™ products.

Lupin is a legume that can cause an allergic response in fewer than 1% of the population. While the risk is very low, impacted Sanitarium products will now declare lupin in the ‘May contain’ statement.  

Here's an example: Weet-Bix Original
