Like most legumes, mung beans contain difficult to digest saponins. Fortunately, saponins are water soluble. To reduce saponins, soak the beans overnight then strain the water the following morning. Or, boil for ten minutes until the water turns sudsy then strain. You may also follow these techniques to improve digestibility and reduce gaseyness in beans.
