Bean sprouts


noun, singular: bean sprout

Beans, especially the edible kinds (e.g. mung beans and soybeans), sprouting or germinating into seedlings.


Bean sprouts are a good source of vitamins. The sprouts synthesize vitamins, enzymes, proteins and minerals necessary for their growth.

One of the most common bean sprouts is the mung bean, which can be sprouted either in light or dark conditions. Mung bean sprouts grown in the dark tend to be crisper in texture and whiter. However, they have less nutritional content than those sprouted in partial sunlight.
