Nutritional values

Often confused with soybean sprouts, the more delicate sprouts definitely have similar advantages: they do not supply any fat, hardly any calories, but many useful vital substances. Among other things, potassium is well represented, which has a positive influence on the body's water balance.

The tender sprouts are not grown from mung beans, but from the seeds. They can also be eaten raw because they do not contain phasine, this poisonous protein is only found in the raw mung beans themselves.
