However, I question if this word exists because not all dictionaries list it; it’s not even included in Wikipedia.
On the other hand it is well documented :

(More worryingly ....)
The body-building supplement Arginine was first isolated from a lupin seedling extract.
Maybe this is the end of the story, maybe not ...
