Best Ways to Cook Mush­rooms

Amazing Wellness - - AMAZING NEWS -

Mush­rooms can be a very healthy food. They’re an ex­cel­lent source of plant pro­tein and con­tain vi­ta­mins, min­er­als, an­tiox­i­dants, and polyphe­nols. But the way they’re cooked can sig­nif­i­cantly change their nu­tri­tional qual­ity. Span­ish re­searchers tested var­i­ous cook­ing meth­ods on four pop­u­lar types of mush­rooms—white but­ton, shi­itake, oys­ter, and king oys­ter—and found that grilling or mi­crowav­ing pro­duced the best re­sults. Both meth­ods in­creased lev­els of an­tiox­i­dants and polyphe­nols (ben­e­fi­cial plant nutri­ents), and did not sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce other nutri­ents. How­ever, fry­ing or boil­ing greatly re­duced pro­tein and an­tiox­i­dant con­tent. Study re­sults were pub­lished in the In­ter­na­tional Jour­nal of Food Sciences and Nutri­tion.
