Health & Nutrition

Mushrooms are classified as vegetables in the food world, but they are not technically plants. They belong to the fungi kingdom. Although they are not vegetables, mushrooms provide several important nutrients.


The key to getting enough vitamins and minerals in the diet is to eat a colorful variety of fruits and vegetables. In many cases, a food that lacks color also lacks necessary nutrients, but edible mushrooms, which are commonly white, prove quite the contrary.

 

Health Benefits 


Consuming fruits and vegetables of all kinds has long been associated with a reduced risk of many lifestyle-related health conditions. Increasing consumption of whole, unprocessed foods, like mushrooms, appears to decrease the risk of obesity and overall mortality, diabetes, and heart disease.  They also promote a healthy complexion and hair, increased energy, and overall lower weight.

Nutritional Profile
 

Mushrooms are naturally low in sodium, fat, cholesterol, and calories and have often been referred to as "functional foods."

As well as providing basic nutrition, they help prevent chronic disease due to the presence of antioxidants and beneficial dietary fibers such as chitin and beta-glucans.

One cup of chopped or sliced raw white mushrooms contains:

  • 15 calories

  • 0 grams of fat

  • 2.2 grams of protein

  • 2.3 grams of carbohydrate, including 0.7 grams of fiber and 1.4 grams of sugar

A large variety of mushrooms are available, but most provide around the same amount of the same nutrients per serving, regardless of their shape or size.
