The nutritional value of crimini/Portobello mushrooms is surprising. One cup of crimini mushrooms provides a very good or event excellent source of 15 different vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant phytonutrients including Vitamin B12, important for vegetarians and vegans. These innocuous little brown mushrooms have recently been shown to surpass some of their more exotic mushroom counterparts (like shiitake or maitake mushrooms) in terms of immune system benefits. Several recent studies place button mushrooms at the top of the mushroom list with respect to regulation of unwanted inflammation. Protection against cardiovascular disease has become an area of special research interest in crimini mushrooms. Along with extracts from oyster, shiikate, maitake, and white button mushrooms, extracts from crimini mushrooms have been found to reduce the binding of certain immune cells onto the lining of the aorta. When mushrooms reduce this binding, they also lower risk of damage to the aorta and risk of blood flow problems. Whether sauteed, raw or grilled, eat your mushrooms!
