Mushrooms in the News: 09-06-2022

Mushrooms continue to be positioned as the answer to helping shoppers stretch their grocery budget. A large syndicated feature story this week under the title, “A Savory Solution to Stretch Your Grocery Budget,” notes: “Easy ways to stretch your grocery budget, like using versatile ingredients, can make the checkout experience a little less impactful on your household’s finances. Consider the benefits of mushrooms, which provide a delicious option to enhance flavor in favorite recipes while extending portions in an affordable way.” The article to date has run in 750+ outlets including the Boston Herald, (Minneapolis) Star Tribune and Arizona Republic.

On the trade front, Joe Watson at IFPA recently suggested stretching meat budgets with mushrooms in IFPA’s monthly produce sales report, authored by Anne-Marie Roerink. Produce Blue Book, Fresh Plaza and Produce News were among the trades covering the report.

With fall approaching, mushrooms are also being featured heavily on autumn-centric recipe lists. Experience Life shared ways mushrooms can help step up your fall sandwich game, while Food & Wine included mushrooms in their seasonal hits. Eat This, Not That! shared a gallery of non-traditional burger recipes which included two that featured mushrooms. Espresso included mushroom varieties on their list of 2022 food trends, while Gourmandize shared their favorite mushroom recipes via their guide to fall produce.

Nutrition was also a big focus this week, with Good Housekeping including mushrooms as one of their top low-carb foods and the Tasting Table shared a useful article detailing the various differences between portabella and crimini mushrooms.
