Organic Mung Beans love being sprouted.

Organic Mung Beans are bright green and sprout beautifully into springy little sprouts.  They are high in vegetarian protein so are a good addition to vegetarian and vegan recipes.  Mung beans can take the place of meat in a range of traditional recipes and give a great texture.

These little mung beans are nutritional powerhouses.  One 70g serving of cooked mung beans is high in Folate and Copper.  Did you know that the nutritional value increases when mung beans are sprouted?  They become a source of vitamin C and K which are both needed for normal maintenance of the immune system.

Sprouting releases a whole host of nutrients as the seeds and pulses become living food – they are still growing when they reach your plate. This is a really cheap way to grow organic produce all year round from your kitchen sideboard (with very little work).

If you want to try sprouting with a range of beans and seeds try our organic sprouting mix.  You can learn how to sprout here with our easy guide.  Want to try a recipe with cooked mung beans?  Give this mung bean salad recipe a try.
