Leguminous plants are both nutritious and valuable. Legumes are rich in proteins, fatty acids and carbohydrates which have an energising effect. They also contain large amounts of fibre, B vitamins and minerals. Legume consumption reduces the risk of arteriosclerosis and heart diseases. Dieticians recommend leguminous plants as nutritive and satiating ingredients without a fattening effect. Legumes can be used to create diversified dishes, such as soups, salads, various fillings and spreads. The Kupiec portfolio includes as many as six different leguminous plants to choose from.
