WHY YOU SHOULD REALLY BE ADDING FRESH MUSHROOMS TO YOUR DIET

More flavour & nutrition; Less saturated fat & sodium + Fewer calories

 

 

We all know and love versatile umami-rich mushrooms because they’re so easy to prepare and because they intensify the flavours of most everything you pair them with from soups, stews and sauces to roasts, wraps, stir-fries and scrambled eggs.

 

But there are even more reasons to add them to your diet:They’re low in calories, virtually fat and totally cholesterol free, PLUS they contain very low levels of sugar and salt, are a good source of dietary fiber and are packed with vitamins and minerals.

 

And to reinforce our claims, we did a comparative nutritional analysis of recipes containing mushrooms and meats against the same recipes where only meat was used.

 

The proof is in the pudding! See attached
