Agaricusbisporus is an edible basidiomycete mushroom native to grasslands in Europe and North America. It has two color states while immature—white and brown—both of which have various names. When mature, it is known as portobello mushroom.
Storage & Uses:
• Do not store mushrooms in the crisper drawer—it’s too moist an environment.
• Avoid placing mushrooms near foods with strong odors or flavors because they’ll absorb them like a sponge.
• Take care not to stack other foods on top of them. Squished, bruised mushrooms don’t look very appetizing, and they won’t keep very long.
• Some mushrooms hold up better in the fridge than others. To avoid waste, try to buy your mushrooms close to when you plan to use them.
Mushrooms are packed with nutritional value. They’re low in calories, are great sources of fiber and protein (good for plant-based diets). They also provide many important nutrients, including B vitamins, selenium, potassium, copper, and (particularly when exposed to the sun) vitamin D
