Mushrooms in the News: 01-20-2021

TODAY Show expert contributor Nora Minno, RD shared her predictions for top trends in 2021. When asked about the top vegetable for this year, she explained that mushrooms are “going to be everywhere in 2021.”

Mushrooms were included in a roundup of healthy foods shared by Yahoo! last week. “Mushrooms are full of nutritional benefits and can make a great stand-in for meat in vegetarian dishes because of their complex, savory flavor and firm texture,” the article says. Additionally, there is a nod to the vitamin D and selenium content of mushrooms.

Lauren Manaker, MS, RDN explained the importance of vitamin D and how to boost your intake in an article on VeryWell Health. UV light-exposed mushrooms, especially portabella, white button and crimini, made the list; as well as The Blend as a way to add more nutrition to ground meat dishes. 

Foodservice publication Plate touted mushrooms as the “main event in earthy recipes” in their “Recipes Weekly” e-newsletter, which features four mushroom-centric recipes.
