Personal Wellness Benefits
- Supports heart health
Studies have linked higher legume consumption to lower LDL cholesterol levels. Mung beans are also a good source of potassium, magnesium and fiber, which have been linked to lower blood pressure levels in adults with and without high blood pressure.
- Aids digestive health
Mung beans contain soluble fiber and resistant starch, which can promote digestive health. The carbs in mung beans are also less likely to cause flatulence than those of other legumes.
- Promotes weight loss
Mung beans are high in fiber and protein, which can help curb hunger by lowering levels of hunger hormones, such as ghrelin, and raising fullness hormones, such as peptide YY, GLP-1 and cholecystokinin. By curbing your appetite, they may help slash your calorie intake, which aids weight loss.

- What is the difference between green mung beans and red ‘adzuki’ mung beans?
The color of these beans vary due to their natural country of origin — green mung beans are originally from India while adzuki beans are first cultivated in Japan. Both kinds have the same promising health benefits, but green mung beans are more often used in savory dishes while adzuki beans are used in sweet recipes and baked goods.
