Mushrooms: Nutrients and Health Benefits

  1. Mushrooms are vegetables in the food world. However, technically they are not plants as they belong to the fungal kingdom. The fungi produce spores, similar to pollen or seeds, which allow them to spread or move in the wind. The rest of the mushroom then ripens, usually alive in soil or wood. Mushrooms vary greatly in color, texture, shape and properties. Some are edible and some are not. While not vegetables, edible (usually white) mushrooms provide a number of important nutrients. Because many minerals, vitamins and important substances are present in mushrooms, many health benefits have been linked to the consumption of these vegetables, such as a reduced risk of developing heart disease.
