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 / Published December 1, 2014 by Priyanka Chaudhary

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.

Our Mission

The mission of AgMatrix is to integrate different agricultural systems to maximize the utilization of resources and provide cost-effective, nutritionally-balanced food.

Our Background

We are a group of multidisciplinary students passionate about agriculture, food, and nutrition.
