What's up Organic Gang?

Mushrooms are known for their great taste and incredible health benefits. Packed with essential vitamins and minerals, they are an excellent option for your diet.

With the aim of delving deeper into this little-known food, we are preparing a series of blogs that we are going to publish little by little.

[MUSHROOM FACTS #01]: Source of vitamins and minerals. It is the only plant source of vitamin D

Mushrooms are one of the few non-animal sources of vitamin D. When they are grown, exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, either from sunlight or a UV lamp, mushrooms increase their concentration of vitamin D. Vitamin D has many health benefits, including boosting the immune system.

Mushrooms are a major source of a variety of vitamins and minerals which are essential for good health. They are high in B vitamins, especially thiamine and riboflavin, which help the body metabolize carbohydrates and are important for the nervous system.

They are also good sources of niacin and pantothenic acid, which are essential for metabolism and the process of converting fat and other nutrients into energy.

They contain several minerals that are important for good health:

  • They are high in selenium, a mineral that supports immune system function, helps prevent certain types of cancers, and helps prevent premature aging.
  • Mushrooms are also a good source of iron, which transports oxygen around the body, helping with healthy brain and muscle function.
  • They are also a reliable source of potassium, an essential mineral that helps regulate the heart, kidneys, and digestive system.

Mushrooms are one of the best plant-based foods you can add to your diet.

They're tasty, have an amazing texture, are low in carbs, and provide an incredible list of benefits. This is one of the main reasons why we have chosen mushrooms as the main ingredient of our Organic Vegan Jerky.

Vegetable alternatives have to be clean and healthy. Ultra-processed fake meats made with loads of chemicals and unhealthy inflammatory ingredients are not a sustainable option in anyone's diet.

We use 100% local products. La Rioja is one of the most important mushroom-producing areas in Europe. Our organic mushroom suppliers are only 50km from our facilities.
