The mung bean (Vigna radiata (L.) R.Wilczek) is a species of pulse (like lentils, chickpeas, soy ...) which originated on the Indian subcontinent and is grown mainly in India, China and south-east Asia (1).

COMPOSITION AND BENEFITS

When germinating, the phytochemical compound content of seeds increases in several plants such as cereals, legumes etc. This has led to consumption of germinated seeds as a healthy food becoming increasingly popular in Western countries (3).

Germinated seeds are an important source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidant compounds such as phenolic acids and flavonoids. Mung bean plants contain higher amounts of phenolic compounds, flavonoids and have more ability to capture free radicals than the seeds of this species (2).

The mung bean is rich in proteins and iron (3). It has high nutritional value as it also contains dietary fiber, vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C and E (particularly vitamin B1) and minerals such as potassium, phosphorus and magnesium.

Main properties:

  • Potassium content keeps blood pressure normal.
  • Protein, phosphorus and magnesium content keeps bones in normal state.
  • Muscles preserved and increased thanks to protein.
  • Iron and magnesium reduce tiredness and fatigue.
