I'm with Issabela on this one. The beans may or may not be soy, therefore "Frijoles germinados" works for any kind of bean.
Here in Mexico they're call soya germinado. In fact I have a bag of them in front of me. Alfa Uno who products various sprouts has just started selling packaged soya germinado. Before yesterday's trip to the supermarket, I'd only seen soya germinado sold in bulk.
