Mushrooms are hidden treasures of nutrition. While bright, colorful fruits and vegetables are frequently in the spotlight for their nutritional value, less colorful but still nutrient dense vegetables like mushrooms are often left in the dark. That is unfortunate, because mushrooms provide a range of nutrients. They are also known by their flavor enhancing property, medicinal value and as cholesterol free food. Mushrooms can heal and enlighten you: even possibly help save the world.
