Nutritional composition of mungbean and soybean sprouts compared to their adult growth stage

This study determined the level of phytonutrients in mungbean and soybean sprouts compared to mature mungbean grain and vegetable soybean. Sprouting mungbean enhanced vitamin C content 2.7-fold compared to mature mungbean grain. The vegetable soybean stage was superior to soybean sprouts in terms of content of protein (14% increase), Zn (45%), Ca (72%), and Fe (151%). Isoflavones, reported to have beneficial effects on human health, are found at high concentrations in soybean sprouts.
