    I love NOW products!

    NOW provides top germination on the products that I've used in the past, and the Mung Beans by NOW Real Food are no exception. Always feel that I'm getting a good value when I get a good germination, and seeds aren't wasted because they didn't sprout.


    Pros

      Convenient packaging, quality product!

    Cons

      Nothing.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Good deal.

    NOW Real Food Mung Beans by NOW cooked up well and also sprouted well. And they are a good price for the amount you receive. I soak my mung beans overnight and they cook up very quickly the next morning 20-30 minutes or so, making a nice nutritious dish to go over whole grains.


    I would recommend this item to a friend.
