Mung bean sprouts add a light, refreshing, crispiness to many Korean dishes. You can buy them in many grocery stores, or grow your own mung bean sprouts at home.

Hello. I LOVE sukju namul, but when I bought these sprouts at the Korean market, they had a very strange chemical smell. Then I went back and bought more and those also had a smell. I bought them in the plastic package.
Is that normal? Is it something that goes away if you soak it or cook it? It didn’t seem to. I put it Shin Ramen and it still had a strange odor and couldn’t eat it.
Thank you so much! Love your website.

“Is that normal?” no, it’s not normal. I wouldn’t be happy about the chemical smell.
