Meet our mushrooms


super 'shroom to the rescue

Part of the kingdom called fungi, mushrooms share some characteristics with both plants and animals. Structurally they are more similar to plants. Like humans and animals, they “breathe” oxygen and emit carbon dioxide.  They have been consumed for thousands of years around the world.  The part of the mushroom we eat is similar to the fruit of a plant. 


In general mushrooms offer a wide variety of nutritional benefits. They are low in calories, fat, cholesterol and sodium, while being an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  There are countless studies on the medicinal properties of mushrooms, from decreasing inflammation, lowering cholesterol, boosting immunity and brain health.  They protect against free radicals, and have antiviral and antibacterial properties.
