Thin noodles made from mung bean paste, the same beans which you eat as ‘bean sprouts’. These noodles are sometimes called ‘bean threads’, ‘bean noodles’ or ‘cellophane noodles’. They are somewhat translucent. Do not confuse them with the similar shaped thin rice noodles which are white and made from rice.
Storage: Store these noodles in an air tight container in the cabinet. They will keep for a long time if kept dry.
