Mushrooms in the News: 2-16-18

As mushrooms stay top of mind thanks to their health benefits and meaty qualities, top tier outlets continue to spotlight them in recipes and health roundups.

  • Several consumer publications including Men’s Fitness, Clean Eating and Marie Claire featured healthy blended recipes.
  • Mushrooms are number one in a roundup of ‘6 Foods to Eat to Help Prevent the Flu’ on, noting “This winter is the time for ‘shrooms.’
  • Trade outlets such as AndNowUKnow, The Packer and Fresh Plaza are touting value-added blend products from Monterey and Gourmet’s Finest.

We’re seeing more organic pickup of The Blend among social influencers. This week, the popular blog Skinnytaste shared a Chicken Marsala Meatball Recipe Video that uses The Blend – with the video garnering more than 473,000 views on Facebook.

This month (American Heart Month) on the Mushroom Council channels, we are partnering with the Oldways Whole Grains Council and Fruits&Veggies More Matters to cross promote heart-healthy recipes. Look for Whole Grains/Oldways shares (like this tweet) throughout the month, and Fruits&Veggies’ posts next week!
