Consumer demands for mushrooms has increased in the past decades as global mushroom production reaches close to 8 million metric tons.
Mushrooms are low-kilojoule fungi that are comprised of 92% water yet they still pack a mean punch of dietary benefits and nutrients that include selenium, fibre, and B-12. There have been multiple studies conducted in order to show the health benefits of mushrooms and in the Journal of Nutrition they outline the medical benefits of mushroom consumption.
