Mushroom nutritional value is extremely beneficial to our well being according to many research articles in the food industry. In January 2020, Healthline published an article written by Ariane Lang, BSc, MBA on White Mushrooms: Nutrition, Benefits, and Uses. Mushrooms are known to have disease fighting properties for the following:

  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Health
  • In pregnancy
  • Antioxidants and immunity
  • Weight management

Check out the article in What is the Nutritional Value of Mushrooms on Medical News Today, published in November 2019 by Megan Ware, RDN, L.D. and medically reviewed by Katherine Marengo, LDN, RD


Not only do mushrooms provide many of the same nutritional benefits as vegetables, as well as attributes commonly found in meat, beans and grains - they are:

  • LOW in calories
  • Fat-FREE
  • CHOLESTEROL-Free
  • Gluten-FREE
  • Very LOW in sodium

DID YOU KNOW? Levels of vitamin D in mushrooms can be manipulated by growers by exposing them to an ultraviolet light. Mushrooms, like humans can naturally produce vitamin D following exposure to the sun. So, get your "sunshine vitamin" and EAT MORE MUSHROOMS!
