Bean sprouts, the tender, flavorful sprouts of young beans, are a tasty, crunchy topping for all kinds of foods. Some people pile them high on a turkey sandwich and others may mix them into soups or salads.


A one-ounce serving of plain bean sprouts contains about 9 calories, according to The Daily Plate. Bean sprouts are often used as a garnish or topping for other foods, so add those 9 calories to the caloric value of the food you are enjoying them with to get a total nutritional value.


The Daily Plate reports that the same one-ounce serving of bean sprouts contains about 1.7 grams of carbohydrates in total. 0.5 grams of these carbohydrates can be attributed to dietary fiber.

Other Facts
