What Is the Health and Nutritional Value of Mushrooms?

Mushrooms may lack the deep green or brilliant red hues consumers have come to associate with nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables, but they are a “powerhouse of nutrition” and not a white food to be avoided, said Angela Lemond, a registered dietitian nutritionist and spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

GruntVegan: Mushrooms is an example of a vegan ingredient with umami. According to the official Umami Information Center, “umami is a pleasant savory taste imparted by glutamate, a type of amino acid, and ribonucleotides, including inosinate and guanylate, which occur naturally in many foods". Other vegan foods with umami include tomatoes, soy, potatoes, carrots and green tea.
