Mushrooms in the News: 03-07-2022

The Washington Post partnered with Consumer Reports to release an article detailing the numerous health benefits that mushrooms offer. The article provides information on the various types, uses, and benefits of a few major mushroom varieties, as well as detailing the viability of mushrooms as a meat substitute. Consumer Reports also released an article detailing how the Blend can improve your burger.

EatWell 101 shared a tasty 5 Cheese Stuffed Mushroom recipe, while Good Housekeeping shared their take on Sauteed Mushrooms with Creamy Polenta. MindBodyGreen released a recipe that’s perfect for the newly vegetarian-friendly Whole30 diet, and Rachael Ray provided a Crab Egg Foo Yong recipe in a 30-minute meals feature.

In the trades, Supermarket Perimeter featured a large story on meat blends, featuring quotes from Mushroom Council consultants Anne-Marie Roerink and Mike Buononato about how mushrooms are the ideal and “original” blending partner to meat, with mushroom/meat blends outperforming full meat blends in taste tests. Roerink also notes that mushrooms are ideal for merchandising in retail because of similar storage dates with meat, and that mushrooms bring nutrition, flavor, immune-support and more to blended dishes.
