With over 2000 varieties of mushrooms, we have a few common ones at the grocery store (or farmers market) that are safe for human consumption.
Mushrooms are rich in vitamins and minerals, mushrooms are a good source of potassium as well as providing selenium, copper and three B-complex vitamins (riboflavin, niacin and pantothenic acid) to assist in metabolism. They are also an excellent source of vitamin D if exposed to UV light before or after harvesting.
