About Organic Porta Bella Mushrooms UK
Porta Bellas, (also known as Portobello) like other mushrooms are virtually free of fat and sodium, provide essential fibre and contain no cholesterol. They are the mature version of crimini or brown mushrooms. One medium cap (about 4 ounces) has only 40 calories. They contribute a wide range of essential amino acids, are low in fat (0.3 - 2.0%), high in fibre and provide several groups of vitamins, particularly thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, biotin, and ascorbic acid. While nutrients vary from one kind of mushroom to the next, many contain protein, vitamins A and C, B-vitamins and minerals including iron, selenium, potassium and phosphorus. Phytochemicals found in some mushrooms are being studied as possible cancer-fighting substances, according to the American Institute for Cancer Research.
