Nutritive value

Mushrooms are known to man for a long time. They are called the forest vegetables and the forest meat. Mushrooms are not only tasty and aromatic, they are also nutritious. But in today’s conditions, because of ecological deterioration and the pollution of the environment, it’s not safe even for the experienced mushrooms pickers, who can distinguish between edible and poisonous mushrooms. The point is that mushrooms are osmotrophes that absorb harmful materials from the soil and air. In many developed countries, wild mushrooms are not being gathered anymore. The forest mushrooms were successfully replaced by mushrooms cultivated in simulated conditions. They don’t contain harmful materials and can be used for food without a risk for health.
