Mung beans and mung bean sprouts aren’t considered toxic to dogs so they could be enjoyed by dogs in small amounts. These beans offer a number of health benefits such as having an abundance of folate and containing other important nutrients like manganese and magnesium.

Dogs can eat mung beans both raw and cooked although the latter would be a much safer option. Cooking it will make the mung beans more tender, which reduces the risk of the beans becoming a choking hazard. When you cook the mung bean sprouts, it’s important to not add any seasoning or ingredients. Just cook them plain and add it to your dog’s regular meal.

Mung beans can make your dog gassy so this is why it’s important to only serve a small amount unless you are okay with having a small fart machine running around the house. Find out what else dogs should or shouldn’t eat by visiting our human dog for food database.
