Debasmita Chakraborty


Abstract: Background: Worldwide, more than 500, 000 plant species are there. Those maintain earth's environmental equilibrium, stability of ecosystem and also possess aesthetic and cultural importance, provide food, fodder, fuel, shelter, medicine, cosmetic and clothing. Specially, in Asian countries Mung Bean (Vigna radiata) is an important pulse used in therapeutics to improve health for long decades. It is an excellent source of carbohydrate, proteins, amino acids, lipids, vitamins, minerals, dietary fibres, along with some bioactive compounds like poly -phenols, -saccharides, peptides, phytochemicals etc. which promote good health. It is proved in various research works that mung bean can play a major role against hyperglycemia, hyperlipemia, hypertension, tumour, cancer, heat stroke, immune suppression, inflammatory diseases, melanogenesis, ROS or RNS triggered diseases, sepsis etc. and it also acts as hepatoprotective, antioxidant, antidiabetic, antimicrobial, antimutagenic and immunomodulatory activities. This study aimed on preparation of aqueous extracts of mung bean sprouts and insight of bioactive compounds, nutritional compositions, phytochemical analysis, health benefits of mung bean sprouts along with the evaluation of future perspective and relevance. Objectives: To know the extraction methods of mung bean sprouts and comparative analysis of nutritional compositions, phytochemical analysis, health benefits of mung bean sprouts.
