Bean sprouts, also known as mung bean sprouts are scientifically known as Vigna radiate and are a member of the Fabaceae or legume family. Any seed that germinates becomes a sprout and even though a variety of them are suitable to sprout for culinary purposes, mung bean sprouts are one of the most popularly used.
One of the most nutritionally dense foods, bean sprouts provide an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, proteins and enzymes. Bean sprouts are low in calories and high in vitamin K, vitamin C, iron, folate and fiber. Sprouted seeds have the potential to carry bacteria and therefore should be avoided by pregnant women, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.
Bean sprouts are popularly used in Asian cuisine. Add to meat, vegetable or tofu stir-fries. Serve atop noodle soups or rice preparations. Use as a filling when making spring rolls and sushi. Add fresh bean sprouts raw to salads or tuck into sandwiches and wraps to add texture and moisture. To prevent wilting, stir-fry sprouts no longer than thirty seconds to maintain crunch and texture. Cooking sprouts will help kill any potential bacterial that may be in the sprouts as well.
Bean sprouts are also known as moyashi in Japan, yar tsai in Mandarin China and ngar choy in Cantonese Chinese.
The mung bean is believed to be native to Northeastern India where it has been grown since ancient times. Today it is cultivated in parts of Australia, Thailand, India and other Asian Countries. In 1830 it was first grown in the United States where it was originally known as the Chickasaw pea. Commercial production of bean sprouts in the United States today takes place predominately in Oklahoma, Texas and California. When growing sprouts pick seeds that are whole and bright green in color for best results.
