Mung bean starch is sometimes mislabeled as “green bean starch” in English by Korean manufacturers, probably because mung beans look like green beans when they’re in the pod.

Hi Maangchi, technically, mung bean IS green bean.. Isn’t it? In Chinese it’s called 绿豆, which translates to green bean. So… I guess that’s where the translation came from.
I guess this powder is like the japanese konnyaku right?
The difference is that konnyaku is not made with mung beans.
Actually, the texture of the end product is different from Konnyaku. Konnyaku is chewy but this is not . = ))) I want to say the texture resemble more to the Japanese Yōkan, except this is not sweetened. Maybe the texture is in between Konnyaku and Yokan?
