Vegetable Consumption at Home

Incorporating mushrooms in your diet not only helps your meals taste great, but also adds a lot of nutritional value! A half-cup serving of cooked sliced mushrooms has a mere 14 calories, virtually no fat, 1 gram of fibre and is a source of phosphorus, potassium, copper, selenium, niacin and pantothenic acid. Mushrooms are also a good source of riboflavin, and are the only vegetable in the produce section with natural Vitamin D. All that goodness with little calories and fat.

In the March edition of the horticulture publication, The Grower, consumers were asked which vegetables had been served in their homes in the past 2 weeks. We were very pleased to see Mushrooms at #7 on the list!


How often do you serve mushrooms at home?
