Fresh white and brown mushrooms are nutrient powerhouses, providing several important nutrients while avoiding less desirable ones, such as sodium and cholesterol. The nutrients in our White, Baby Bella and Portabella are very similar. In fact, our white and brown mushrooms are from the same species: Agaricus bisporus. Another interesting fact is that Portabella mushrooms are simply Baby Bella mushrooms that have grown larger and more mature. They each contain potassium, B vitamins, selenium and, if exposed to light, are the only source of vitamin D in the produce aisle, and more!
Here is the nutrient-packed profile of mushrooms:
- B Vitamins: Riboflavin, Niacin and Pantothenic Acid
- Selenium (an antioxidant)
- Vitamin D (if labeled, "High in Vitamin D")
