Brown or crimini mushrooms are similar to the common white mushroom but with more taste. Crimini mushrooms boast an unusual array of phytonutrients that can be difficult to obtain from other foods. These phytonutrients include special types of carbs (for example, the polysaccharide-like molecules beta-D-glucans or fucogalactans) and special organic compounds called hydrazines and hydrazides. Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a unique type of fatty acid also found in crimini mushrooms. Many of the above-mentioned phytonutrients provide support to our immune system and help prevent unwanted inflammation.Crimini mushrooms are an excellent source of many minerals including copper, selenium, and phosphorus. They are also an excellent source of B vitamins including vitamin B2, niacin, and pantothenic acid. In addition, crimini mushrooms are a very good source of potassium, zinc, vitamin B1, and manganese. They are also a good source of vitamin B6, folate, choline, protein, and vitamin B12.
