Good for you ... Flat Mushrooms
Fresh mushrooms differ from vegetables in that they supply mainly B group vitamins rather than contributing vitamin C and carotenoids (which are converted in the body to vitamin A)
They are a source of riboflavin (vitamin B2) and niacin, both of which contribute to the normal release of energy from food. They are also a source of the B vitamins pantothenic acid and biotin which both contribute to normal metabolism of fat.
A source of selenium, a mineral which contributes to the maintenance of hair and nails and the way the body uses iodine in its production of thyroid hormones.
