We sprout mung beans to increase the protein content, improve their texture and flavor, and to remove the indigestible components that are in all beans, such as lectins and phytic acid. Sprouting converts those into nutritional elements and that makes the beans very digestible. Mung beans may be the most digestible plant-protein in the world. The texture of the sprouted bean creates the wonderful Crunch in Crunchsters
Those are the husks of the mung beans that come off the beans when they sprout. We leave them in for three reasons: They provide a lot of the healthful minerals in Crunchsters, they hold the spices and distribute the flavor throughout the bag, and they give you a finer, more high frequency crunch that contrasts with the thicker crunch of the mung bean itself. Put these two textures together and you have yourself a little symphony of crunch in your mouth that changes with every mouthful, not like potato chips that are the same monochromatic texture with every mouthful.
Everything is vegan! This is a vegan product line. All flavors point out on the back side of the package that they are indeed vegan. Importantly, the Beyond Bacon (R) flavor contains no animal products or meat, which is why vegan is printed on the bag.
