Thanks to their mild, refreshing taste, bean sprouts can be used in various dishes, including salads and noodle soups. They add a satisfying crunch to dishes. The best part is that they are low in calories.
Bean sprouts contain soluble and insoluble fibre, which has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.

How to add bean sprouts to your diet
• Bean sprouts make for a healthy snack option. You can consume them as they are or add some seasoning or a dip for extra flavour.
• Pair your sprouts with healthy fats and proteins. You can make a sprouts salad using chicken/paneer as protein and top it off with some olive oil.
• You can also add bean sprouts to sandwiches and wraps. They add a nice crunch and texture and can be used as a replacement for lettuce or other greens.

Sprouts have a low glycemic index because they contain minimal carbohydrates and calories. As a result, they have little impact on blood sugar levels and do not cause sudden spikes in glucose.
