Mushrooms Trivia:

Next on the list is mushroom. People are advised to eat mushrooms with caution. Being under the classification of fungi, they are all eaten with precaution.
All mushrooms are fungi, but not all fungi are mushrooms. Mushrooms are more like humans than plants. They take in oxygen for their digestion and excrete carbon dioxide as a waste product. The protein composition of fungi are much more similar to animal proteins.

In Egypt, some artifacts indicate the importance of mushroom in their culture. Egyptians may have considered mushrooms as the plant of immortality, making the handling of mushrooms for royalty alone. Romans in the early times referred to it as the food of the gods.

Today, China and America are the biggest producers of mushroom. Mushrooms offer tons of nutritious benefits. Some of the health benefits include Selenium, Fiber, B Vitamins, potassium, and powerful antioxidants.
