Did You know?
Mushrooms are neither fruit nor vegetables. Technically mushrooms aren’t even plants. They are a special type of fungus.
Now shake that thought off and focus on the good:
Sunshine in a Βite | Vitamin D
Just like you and me, mushrooms have the wonderous ability to create Vitamin D when exposed to the sun. They transform the ultraviolet light from the sun into the vitamin and continue to do so even after they have been harvested. Studies suggest that mushrooms can offer as much Vitamin D as your beloved supplements but it is recommended to leave them out to soak up some sunshine (unwrapped) for 30 minutes before consuming. Keep in mind that you can eat them raw but cooking has no effect on the vitamin levels Such an easy going fungus.
They are so Heavy Metal | Vegan Iron
If you’ve been diagnosed with iron deficiency, a.k.a anemia or if you are looking for vegan iron rich sources to add to your daily diet,here you go! You’ll get 0.5 mg of iron in every 100 grams of white mushrooms.
Rag & Bones | Magnesium
Magnesium keeps your bones strong. It assures the strength and firmness of your sceleton and makes your teeth harder by helping with the absorption and metabolism of calcium.
Bloody Heroes | Potassium
They are rich in Potassium, which helps to regulate your body fluids and helps to control blood pressure. In fact, most mushrooms contain more potassium than a banana! Who knew?
