  • Riboflavin and Pantothenic Acid, which aid metabolism
  • Selenium, an antioxidant
  • Copper, an essential nutrient

Use white mushrooms sliced in salads, sautéed on burgers, pizza and pasta, added to egg dishes, quesadillas and stir-fries. A flavor that intensifies when cooked makes them perfect for slow cookers, soups and curries.
