- For Cooking or Sprouting
- Excellent Source of Fiber and Protein
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.
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.
Please see this section on the FDA website for proper instructions on how to clean and handle sprouts: http://www.fda.gov/Food/FoodborneIllnessContaminants/BuyStoreServeSafeFood/ucm078789.htm#current
