Mushrooms are the 3rd food kingdom, different to plants and animals. The mushroom kingdom has nutrition and eating properties very different to vegetables.
For example, when mushrooms are exposed to UV light or sunlight, they naturally generate vitamin D. This vitamin D is stable and easy to absorb.
Mushroom’s unique savoury flavour (“umami”) originates from their abundant glutamate content. Glutamate receptors in the mouth, stomach and intestines seem to have an appetite feedback role, which may explain why, when mushrooms are included in meals, people eat less food.
There is huge interest in the 10 observational studies revealing that women who eat an average of one mushroom daily have half the risk of breast cancer. The 3rd food kingdom can play a significant role in our health.
