    What

    While often grouped with vegetables, mushrooms grow from microscopic spores, not seeds. Plants growing from spores are called fungi, making mushrooms a unique member of our food supply.

    Which                 

    All types of mushrooms (white button, shiitake, maitake, beech, oyster, portabella, crimini, enoki)

    Why                    

    Mushrooms are full of umami, making them flavorful, nutritious additions to almost any meal. Often grouped with vegetables, mushrooms provide many of the nutritional attributes of produce, as well as those more commonly found in meat, beans or grains. Mushrooms are low in calories, fat-free, and very low in sodium, yet they provide important nutrients, including selenium, potassium, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin D and more.
