Mung Beans are one of the most popular sprouting products in use today. NOW Real Food™ Mung Beans are an excellent source of fiber and protein, making them a good meat substitute for vegetarians and vegans. Mung Beans have a mildly sweet flavor and are widely used in Asian cuisine.


Suggested Usage

Place two tablespoons of seeds in a sprouting jar with three times as much water as seeds. Soak overnight. Rinse seeds and drain twice daily, store in low humidity without direct sunlight. About the fourth day, place rinsed sprout jar in indirect sunlight to develop green chlorophyll leaves.

Note: We recommend adding 1/4 tsp. NOW Real Food™ Citric Acid Powder to each rinse cycle as a preservative against spoilage. Sprouting at temperatures above 80º F and humidity of 70% may be impossible.
