Mushrooms in the News: 07-12-2021

Food Network Magazine continues to support mushrooms in its latest issue with a feature called “Build a Better Veggie Burger” that includes a mushroom and bean blended burger recipe. Plus, on a burger recipe by celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis calls for topping the beef patty with grilled and sliced portabella. 

Salon detailed the history of portabella mushrooms, noting their rise in popularity with a quote from former Mushroom Council President Wade Whitfield in 1996. They then talk about the future of the portabella, with a recipe-hack to make portabellas taste even more like a beef burger.

Forbes highlighted how fungi-based meats are booming in popularity, with the startup Meati raising $50 million in Series B funding. With a full consumer launch in 2022, the founders of Meati believe fungi-steaks will quickly become a staple in the meat-alternate category.
