Mushrooms – one of your best bets for selenium.

 

Second to lung cancer, prostate cancer is still one of the most common cancers worldwide and while the causes of prostate cancer are still unknown, we do know that age, heredity, hormones, diet and lifestyle all play a role. 

 

So where do mushrooms come in? When it comes to Selenium content, mushrooms surpass all other items in the produce category.  The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for Selenium is 55 mcg (micrograms) for adults. The US Dept of Agriculture (USDA)'s National Nutrient Database reports that grilled Portobella mushrooms have 26.5 mcg of Selenium per serving, nearly half of the daily RDA for an adult. Portabellini mushrooms and white button mushrooms are also good sources of the nutrient. 

 

So there you have it, mushrooms are not only hugely nutritious; they are delicious, versatile and jam-packed with flavour too! No wonder we don’t need an excuse to throw a handful (or two!) into just about every dish!
