Mushrooms: Healthy & Delicious
Mushrooms are just beginning to get their due attention from Americans, who are finally shedding their fear of the f-word: fungus.
The Benefits of "Superfoods"
While we have long prized blueberries and kale, and even dark chocolate and coffee, as “superfoods,” we have yet to give mushrooms the credit they deserve. Mushrooms are among the healthiest and tastiest foods around, long enjoyed by cultures throughout the world.
Mushrooms Are Rich With Vitamins
Despite having few calories and no fat or cholesterol, mushrooms typically are high in fiber, provide some protein, and are rich in vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin and vitamin D, which is rarely found naturally in foods. They also tend to contain certain minerals such as selenium and potassium.
