Mung beans and soybeans are the common sources for bean sprouts.

I eat broccoli sprouts. Dr. D wrote a blog on them awhile back they are really good for you.

One of the most common sprouts is that of the mung bean (Vigna radiata); other common sprouts are chickpeas & alfalfa  sprout and the barley sprout.

Sprouting is also applied on a large scale to barley as a part of the malting process. Malted barley is an important ingredient in beer and is used in huge quantities. Most malted barley is distributed among wide retail sellers in North American regions.

Many sprouts, such as kidney beans, are toxic. Some sprouts can be cooked to remove the toxin, while others cannot.[1]

With all seeds, care should be taken that they are intended for sprouting or human consumption rather than sowing. Seeds intended for sowing may be treated with chemical dressings. Several countries, such as New Zealand, also require that some varieties of edible seed be heat-treated, thus making them impossible to sprout.

Many varieties of nuts, such as almonds and peanuts, can also be started in their growth cycle by soaking and sprouting, although because the sprouts are generally still very tiny when eaten, they are usually called "soaks."

If it just says "bean sprouts" then it's most likely mung bean sprouts- in America anyway. I'm not sure if it's different in Ireland.

Any kind of bean can be sprouted, if you want to take the time to do it yourself, but I'm not sure what kinds of sprouts are available to you locally.

In general, the sprout of a bean is fine if the bean itself is fine, and the sprouts aren't OK if the bean isn't OK. The exceptions to this rule would be if the two are listed separately on your SWAMI.
