Mungbean seed protein: A potent functional food with health promoting biological potential

Author(s): Neha Gupta
Abstract: Mung bean protein (MBP), an important component of vital amino acids, minerals, and vitamins, as well as an adequate source of protein, carbs, and fibre, has drawn a lot of interest in the growing trend of plant-based proteins. When compared to other pulses, the protein quality is higher in MBP. Mungbean consumption is associated with favourable health benefits. Increasing interest is being paid to dietary peptides derived from mungbean protein. MBP has a variety of bioactivities, such as improvements in growth deficiencies and cognitive dysfunction, type 2 diabetes, anticancer, anti-obesity, antihypertensive, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial activity. Balanced diet plays an essential role in prevailing against many illnesses. Numerous bioactive substances found in mungbean, such as phytochemicals, bioactive peptides and antioxidants have protective and preventive impacts on health. This review outlines the most recent research on proteins obtained from mungbeans, their effects on human health and their use as a valuable functional food.
