Moong dal is a great source of both soluble and insoluble fibre. It contains folic acid, magnesium, copper, potassium and beneficial antioxidants. Packed with protein and low on carbs, moong dal (also known as green gram) is one of the most recommended vegetarian superfoods. An integral part of the Indian diet, it is extremely light and easy to digest. Compared to other dals, moong dal is low on carbs, making it a healthier option. Naturally low in fat and high in fiber, a 1-cup serving of cooked moong dal has less than 1 gram of total fat, over 14 grams of protein and 15.4 grams of dietary fiber. A 1-cup serving contains 212 calories.
