If you’re looking for a different food to try, you’ll be delighted with our Mung Bean Soup with Turmeric. The mung beans have a chewy texture and unique taste that will make you feel you’re eating something new for the first time.
The mung bean, a legume used since ancient times, is considered in Traditional Chinese Medicine to be a "cooling food" and is a favorite among many Asian cultures. This new healthy food choice soup contains green mung beans, turmeric, ginger, coriander, olive oil, and lemon juice. It's a refreshing, non-tomato based soup suitable for vegans.
Processed food companies sell vegetable soups so cheaply because they load them with high-glycemic carbohydrates (rice, potatoes, pasta) that cost virtually nothing. They then add inexpensive ingredients such as corn, sugar, and sometimes omega-6 fats (such as cottonseed oil). So for less than $2, you get a relatively high-carb-calorie soup that provides few health benefits.
Each serving of Rich Rewards™ Mung Bean Soup with Turmeric contains only 130 calories. It is an excellent source of fiber and provides 6 grams of protein. You can consume the entire contents or use a smaller portion of the soup as part of a meal for you (or several people). The entire container provides about 3.5 servings of mung beans, turmeric, and other ingredients—with none of the glucose-spiking fillers found in commercial soups.
Rich Rewards™ Mung Bean Soup with Turmeric is packaged in a re-closable bottle free of BPA. While the FDA says the BPA lining in most cans is safe, we at Life Extension have always used BPA-free containers for our soups.
