Untreated organic mung beans green from China in raw food quality.
The mung bean originated in China and belongs to the Papilionaceae family (legumes). Like many other legumes, the mung bean was brought to Europe in the 16th century.
Mung beans have a slightly sweet flavor in the early stages of ripening, but become tarter as ripening proceeds.
Mung beans need up to 5 days in order to germinate properly. They are rich in protein, potassium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, and vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B12, C, and E.
