Leafu is also known as Leaf Curd, Leaf Protein, Leaf Concentrate, Leaf Protein Concentrate, or LPC. The term 'leafu' is used in the vegan/vegetarian community whilst the other terms are more common in the international development and food science realms.

Leafu is a solid food made from the coagulated protein curds of pulped edible leaves such as nettle leaves. Leafu makes protein available from leaves which would otherwise be too bulky in fibre to have significant nutritional value.
