Are mushrooms considered to be healthy foods?

In ancient Egypt, mushrooms were reserved for royalty, and ancient Romans thought mushrooms conferred strength to warriors, according to the Oregon State University Extension Service. 

Of the 300 edible species, 10 are currently grown commercially. 




Use mushrooms to add a distinct flavor and a range of nutritional and health benefits to some of your favorite dishes.

1. Cancer Prevention

White button mushrooms, such as crimini, commonly found in grocery stores and salad bars, help remove excess estrogen from circulation, making them helpful for preventing breast cancer. 

A tissue culture study published in the November 2010 issue of the journal "Experimental Biology and Medicine" found that white button mushrooms, along with four other varieties of common and specialty mushrooms, significantly suppressed breast cancer cell growth and reproduction. 

However, further studies are needed to confirm these preliminary results.

2. Fiber

Mushrooms are a good source of chitin and beta-glucan, fibers that lower cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health. 

A laboratory animal study published in the 2012 issue of the "International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms" found that pink oyster mushrooms reduced total cholesterol, triglycerides, and low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, cholesterol and prevent arterial plaque formation. 

Further studies are needed to confirm these preliminary results. 

A compound in shiitake mushrooms, called critadenine, helps the liver process cholesterol.

3. Immune Boost

Beta-glucan in mushrooms provides protection against colds, flu, and other viruses.

The reishi mushroom was found to improve recovery time in herpes patients in a study published in the November 2007 issue of the "Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine." 

Reishi may exert its antiviral effects by interfering with the attachment of viruses to host cells, according to researchers of a study published in the January 2005 issue of the "Journal of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology." 

Shiitake, portobello, oyster, and reishi mushrooms contain a polysaccharide molecule called lentinan that stimulates the production of interferon, which stimulates the immune system.

4. Vitamins and Minerals

Crimini mushrooms are among the only natural food sources of vitamin D, and mushrooms are one of the few foods that contain germanium, a trace mineral that helps your body use oxygen efficiently and prevents against damaging effects of free radicals. 

Many mushrooms are also good sources of selenium, an antioxidant mineral, as well as copper, niacin, potassium, and phosphorous. 

Additionally, mushrooms provide protein, vitamin C, and iron. 

Because their cell walls are indigestible unless exposed to heat, you must cook mushrooms to get their nutritional benefits.

What is the major problems in mushroom cultivation?

Problems and solutions in the cultivation of the mushroom including: a) Mycelium fails to form Improper initiation strategy.  Solutions : consult parameter of growth. Alter moisture, temperature, light, carbon dioxide, etc.  Note : If the substrate is too moist, decrease moisture b) Chlorinated or contaminated water.  Solutions :  Use activated charcoal water filters to eliminate chemical contaminants or any other ways of simple or appropriate technology. c) Bad substrate.  Solutions : Check substrate. Spread the substrate and remix the substrate, package again, make sure all raw materials are good and fresh.   Note : It is necessary to pasteurize immediately after bagging otherwise fermentation gas will slow down the rate of growth of mycelium or stop mycelium growth. d) Bad pasteurization.  Solutions : Check method of pasteurization. Release all air and make sure there is continuous steam before starting pasteurization for a period of 3h. e) The substrate in the bag is too hot when i

Oyster mushroom vs button mushroom nutrition | Nutritional comparison between oyster and button mushrooms

Oyster mushrooms are beloved the world over for their delicate texture and mild, savory flavor.  Oyster mushrooms are more expensive than white button mushrooms but less so than rarer mushrooms like morels, and take little prep since they can be used whole or chopped.                                Oyster: “These are low in calories and rich in fiber, protein, selenium [which may help prevent cancer], niacin [aka, vitamin B3] and riboflavin [aka, vitamin B2].Oyster mushrooms also contain an active compound called benzaldehyde, which has potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Additionally, research shows oyster mushrooms may significantly reduce blood glucose levels. They have also been shown to help lower cholesterol levels.”    White Button: White button mushrooms represent 90 percent of the total mushrooms consumed. “They’re a good source of potassium, B vitamins, calcium, phosphorus [which supports bone and teeth health] and iron. They also contain selenium, a trace
