    Can you have these on induction?

    The induction lists bean sprouts as suitable, which sprout from mung beans... i think?

    never tried them before but there's a mung bean wrap in the sw recipe section that i wouldn't mind trying :)

    I don't know but I wouldn't have thought so. I would imagine the mung bean has extra starches. This is also true for peas, sweetcorn etc. For example, mange tout is undeveloped and are OK... Baby corn the same... Full grown starchy pulses aren't suitable though.

    Hope that helped!

    Hello, I actually looked this up a few days ago because I was making a stir fry. They are allowed during induction. As far as I know, they are on the "other acceptable veg" list and should be limited to about a cup a day.

    Hi SD, I hadn't considered the point you made about the maturity of the vegetable. It would appear the mung sprouts are an exception. When they are in bean form, the carb content is much higher. Mature Sprouts are about 5 carbs for a cup serving / 100g.

    Out of curiosity, would baby corn be ok to eat during induction?

    Hi ladies - no mung beans, no corn on induction - sorry :)

    Here's a full list of the A and B list that are allowed -

    Vegetables
    You can have two to three mugs per day of:

    daikon radish
    mushrooms
    Rocket
    endive
    parsley
    bok choi
    pak choi
    broad leaf endive
    bell peppers
    celery
    fennel
    radicchio
    chicory
    radishes
    chives
    lettuce
    romaine lettuce
    cucumber
    lambs lettuce
    sorrel

    These salad vegetables are high in phytonutrients and provide a good source of fiber.

    Other Vegetables:

    You can have one mug per day of these veggies if salad does not exceed two mugs. The following vegetables are slightly higher in carbohydrate content than the salad vegetables:

    artichoke
    celeriac
    pumpkin
    artichoke hearts
    asparagus
    swiss chard
    sauerkraut
    bamboo shoots
    spring greens
    spring onion (scallions)
    snow peas
    bean sprouts
    spaghetti squash
    beet greens
    eggplant
    spinach
    hearts of palm
    string or wax beans
    broccoli
    kale
    brussels sprouts
    kohlrabi (German Turnip)
    leeks
    cabbage
    okra (ladies fingers)
    water chestnuts
    cauliflower
    onion (in moderation)
    courgettes

    Eeeeek! My apologies! I misread the very first post. I thought the question was in relation to bean sprouts, ( from mung beans) not the mung bean itself!

    Mung beans have like 65 carbs for a one cup serving.

    I have a way confusing myself and others, beware!
