Giorgio White Mushrooms - Retail

Whites-ChosenAltGiorgio’s white mushrooms are nutritious with riboflavin, ergothienine, low fat, low sodium. White mushrooms are the best selling variety of mushrooms in the US. They vary in color from white to off white or tan color. We package white mushrooms in retail sizes from 4 oz to 40 oz, in bulk cases from 3 lbs to 10 lbs, and in sizes ranging from Small or button (0.75-1.25” diameter) to jumbo (2.75-3.5” in diameter). Another name for white mushrooms is the “button mushroom”. That can be confusing since button mushroom is sometimes also used to describe a size as noted above.

Nutrition
The focus on the nutritional value of brightly colored fruits and vegetables has unintentionally left mushrooms in the dark. Mushrooms provide a number of nutrients: A serving of 4-5 white mushrooms provides 18 calories, 0 grams of fat and 3 grams of carbohydrates, yet is a good source of the antioxidant selenium; the B vitamins riboflavin, niacin and pantothenic acid; and copper. And mushrooms have close to 300 mg of potassium per serving, an important nutrient that many Americans do not get enough of. White buttons also contain 2.8 mg of the antioxidant ergothioneine and 15 IU of vitamin D.
