When you grow mung bean sprouts yourself, freshness isn't a problem. What you want to do is pick them at the right time. Therefore, pick the mung bean sprouts when there is a white shoot with no leaves.
Nothing to report.
Most people don't like mung bean sprout juice by itself. So you will want to mix with other juices. Most people just use a small amount of mung bean sprouts. So try a small handful to start with and go from there.
One of the benefits of sprouts is that you can grow them yourself. Not only does this save you money, but when sprouts are grown in your home you also get really fresh juice that contains no pesticides.
You can obtain organic mung beans from your local health food store.
You may find it beneficial to wrap your sprouts in a lettuce leaf before juicing to help maximize the juice obtained from the sprouts.
