Mung beans, commonly known as bean sprouts, are a great addition to a low-fat diet, containing no trans or saturated fats. Similar to other beans, they provide fibre and protein. However, the mung bean is also noted for being a great source of vitamin C and folic acid. The sprouts are commonly used in East Asian, Southeast Asian, and South Asian cooking, from countries such as China, India, Korea, etc.
