Dynasty Saifun Bean threads contain 3 bundles. 1\One bundle of bean threads: 50 grams of threads / 170 calories / zero fat / carbs 42 grams/ zero protein.  On my Carnivore way of eating journey I allow myself the pleasure of healthy options: Once a month, or once a week a one bundle of mung bean threads has not decreased my health in any way.  No bloat, zero gas, and no sign of increased inflammation in my body.  Simply soak a bundle in water for a few minutes then fry in coconut oil, serve as a crunch with your favorite meat.  I also will boil a bundle of bean threads and add chicken and a beef or chicken broth.  KETO Mung Soup
