“The Social Butterfly” of the Mushroom Family

You know that friend who gets along with everybody? No matter who you introduce them to, they hit it off like they’re about to become best buds? Well, that’s the White mushroom! It’s like the social butterfly of the dietary fungi kingdom— a mushroom that pairs exceptionally well with almost any meal!

The reason White mushrooms are so versatile is that their flavor is mild and earthy, far less robust than popular Brown varieties like the Baby Bella or Portabella. That makes Whites perfect to put onto most plates for added nutrients, without worrying they’ll command the flavor. White mushrooms really take on the taste you give them, subtly helping to cut the sodium and calories when paired with meat. 

Here at Monterey, our White mushrooms are undoubtedly our best-selling fresh fungi. We sell them sliced; we sell them whole. Conventional or organic. High Vitamin D Whites receive so much love from our customers that we grow and package ‘em in so many ways. You name it, we probably offer it!

Fat-free and packed with nutrients, here’s what makes our Whites some of the most nutritious, easily-cooked mushrooms in the supermarket:

Your Natural Source of Vitamin D

While not all commercially-grown mushrooms contain vitamin D, Monterey’s High Vitamin D mushrooms do — boasting 50% of the Daily Value of D2 per serving, just for you!

How They Stack Up


Tired of eating bananas? White mushrooms contain their fair share of potassium — 300 mg per a 5-cap serving — making them a close runner-up against the tropical fruit. Potassium plays an important role in helping your body maintain fluid and electrolyte balance.


All mushrooms are low in sodium since their umami properties give them a natural salty taste. Whites, however, contain a smidge more sodium than Brown mushrooms. This makes them a healthy yet delicious choice to pair with meats, without passing around the salt shaker.


Iron is a mineral your body needs for growth and development. Compared to Brown mushrooms (without a significant amount of iron per serving), Whites take the crown, containing 10% of your Daily Value per 5 medium caps.

B Vitamins

White mushrooms contain a punch of B Vitamins, including Riboflavin, Niacin, Selenium, Copper, and Pantothenic Acid. B vitamins help to provide energy by breaking down proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, as well as play an important role in supporting the nervous system.
