A joint CEC/NCRD Workshop on `Lupin production and bio-processing for feed, food and other by-products' was held in January 1989 in Israel. The main objective of the workshop was to assess the state of the art and the existing knowledge regarding lupin production and usage potential. The Venezuelan experience in post-harvest technology and processing of amaranth as a special topic was also presented. Lupin production and usage is still at an initial stage, similar to the state of soybean production many years ago. Since then, remarkable advances have been made in the production and processing of soybean which nowadays is one of the major meat substitutes in human nutrition and a major protein source for livestock. Main points made during the individual presentations and highlights of the general discussion are summarised in this document which is divided into four sections: Production, genetics and breeding of lupin; Bio-processing and utilisation of lupin; Alternative uses of lupin including phyto-toxicants, pest deterrents and toxicological effects; and Conclusions and follow-up.
