Mushrooms White 250 g - White mushrooms are easily identified by their umbrella shape and white skin. They are part of the Kingdom Fungi and replicate by producing spores. Aside from being very low in calories, they offer multiple health-promoting effects, such as improved heart health and cancer-fighting properties. Like most mushrooms, white mushrooms are low in calories but pack plenty of nutrients. Due to their exposure to UV rays or sunlight, mushrooms are a natural, non-animal source of vitamin D2 that’s capable of increasing blood levels of this vitamin as effectively as a supplement — and white mushrooms are no exception. Your body turns vitamin D2 into the active form of vitamin D, which it needs to absorb calcium and keep your bones healthy.
