Question of the Day: White vs. Crimini

Did you know that the white button mushroom is the most popular variety in Canada?

But if it came down to it, which mushroom would you choose? White or crimini?

Personally, I would choose crimini. I find they have more flavour and a meatier texture, making them a delicious addition to stir-fries, pastas and on top of burgers!

I like white button raw in salads but sautéed criminis.

@Marc-Andre - I agree when it comes to salads. Have you ever tried Enoki in your salads? They add a nice crunch!

Call me plain-jane, but I like whites.

Crimini! Especially when stuffed. Mmmmm!

Shiitakes if we're keeping it real, but out of these options, I usually go with the humble white mushroom.

White button mushrooms (Agaricus bisporous) are a potential breast cancer chemopreventive agent, as they suppress aromatase activity and estrogen biosynthesis
