Description

Organic Mung-Bean Sprouting Seeds

These organic mung-bean sprouting seeds are used to grow delicious Chinese bean sprouts or short shoot-sprouts. Chinese physicians knew about mung bean sprouts and were prescribing them for the healing of many disorders over 5,000 years ago. They should be grown in the dark to prevent bitterness.

Storage: Our seeds should sprout well for a year after you purchase them, if stored in a cool dry place. If you’d like to extend the germination life of your seeds, store them in the fridge. If you store your seeds in the freezer, they’ll last even longer!

Certified Organic

All our sprouting seeds are certified organic and non-GMO.

Sprouting Directions

Jar Method:

  • DARKNESS – Grow mung bean sprouts in the dark. Light will cause them to have some bitterness in taste.
  • SOAK – Put 3-5 Tbsp. seed in a wide mouth jar. Cover jar with sprouting lid.  Add water, swirl, and drain. Add 1 cup warm water and soak for 4 to 8 hours. Drain well.
  • RINSE – Two to four times a day, refill jar with cool water, swirl, and drain. Invert jar and prop at an angle in a sink or bowl. Mung bean sprouts do best with lots of rinsing – 3 to 4 times a day if possible.
  • YIELD – 1/2 cup of dry seed yields 2.5 cups of sprouts.
  • ENJOY – Ready to eat in 2 to 5 days. Refrigerate to store. (Sprouts can be refrigerated for up to two weeks in a sealed container. Sprouts store best when they are fairly dry – do not store immediately after rinsing.)

Tray Method:

Use the tray method to grow tall straight Chinese bean sprouts.

  • DARKNESS – Grow mung bean sprouts in the dark. Light will cause them to have some bitterness in taste.
  • SOAK– Cover the bottom of the sprouting tray with one single layer of seed. Place the tray and seeds in a dish of warm water and soak for 4 to 8 hours. (Alternatively, once you’ve measured your seeds in the tray, you can put the seeds in a bowl, fill the bowl with warm water, and soak for 4 to 8 hours.) Drain well.
  • RINSE – 2-4 times a day, rinse the seeds. Either rinse under a tap of running water, or use a spray bottle to mist well. Tip the tray to the side to drain well. Mung bean sprouts do best with lots of rinsing – 3 to 4 times a day if possible.
  • YIELD – 1/2 cup of dry seed yields 2.5 cups of sprouts.
  • ENJOY – Ready to eat in 4-6 days. Refrigerate to store. (Sprouts can be refrigerated for up to two weeks in a sealed container. Sprouts store best when they are fairly dry- do not store immediately after rinsing.)
