Adzuki Bean Sprouts

adzuki-beans
Adzuki bean sprouts, along with mung beans, are the easiest beans to digest. They are a great low fat source of high quality protein, and are known as the “weight loss bean” because they are low in calories and high in nutrients. Like most beans, adzuki beans are rich in soluble fibre. This type of fibre provides bulk to the stool and binds to toxins and cholesterol aiding in their elimination from the body. Fiber increases by 300% when beans are sprouted. Adzuki sprouts have a beautiful red color, provide a great crunchy texture, and have a strong, nutty sweet flavor that makes them quite versatile for a number of dishes. In the Far East they are often known as the “Mercedes” of beans and are renowned for their healing properties. They can easily be grown in our Sprouting Kit in just two days or until a small tail emerges.
