'Much'room for nutrition
Mushrooms are a good source of vitamin D, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, potassium, copper and selenium. In addition, they also contain dietary fiber, protein, vitamin C, folate, iron, zinc and manganese. Mushrooms are an excellent alternative to other animal based food sources of vitamin D. This makes mushrooms a nutritionally packed food, which is even recommended by American Dietetic Association.
Exploring Alternative Protein Source- Spirulina
I am so excited! I am exploring spirulina, a superfood and alternative protein source. It is a fast-growing blue-green algae that can be grown in small aquariums at home. When dried, spirulina is a good source of protein, iron, and vitamin K, according to the USDA Nutrient Database. We are researching spirulina as one of our alternative protein sources that is sustainable in a dynamic world.
