Bean Sprouts are one of the most popular bean in all of Asia. The sprouts is called mung bean and during the sprouting process, the bean turns into a sprouts absorbing moisture in a warm controlled atmosphere. It has numerous uses that can be added to practically any Asian dish. From soups to stir fry, the bean sprout has a unique mild flavor but noted for its crunch and crispness. NOTE: Don't buy the canned bean sprouts by LaChoy. Back in the day this was the only way that bean sprout was sold. It's cooked first and then canned. It goes against everything that healthy bean sprouts could offer. Today, with the health craze and more interesting ingredients have been popular, ben sprouts now comes bagged. The only caution is that the bag may be sitting on the shelf for awhile. People may not know how to use it. What you want is bright white stems not browning color nor a lot of moisture gathered at bottom if the bag.
