Mushrooms usually develop from mushroom spores. And another very interesting and unique fact about mushrooms is that some mushrooms taste better than others. It would be very interesting to understand what makes mushrooms tastier.
Oyster mushrooms and shiitake mushrooms are among the most advantageous from the point of view of their taste. Mushrooms are also very poor in calories, which makes them the perfect choice for people who want to go on a diet. They are rich in copper, selenium and potassium. Moreover, they are rich in B-complex vitamins, such as pantothenic acid, niacin and riboflavin. They can also be a great source of vitamin D.
It is essential to choose mushrooms which have a rather firm texture, a uniform color and which have tightly closed caps. According to mushroom specialists at Hidden Forest Mushroom Spores, there are more than 2000 edible species out there.
At any rate, there are some specific factors which may contribute to the mushrooms tasting good. Apparently, mushrooms are more closely related to animals than to plants, and that explains their rich flavor. As a matter of fact, mushrooms are somewhere between plants and animals. At the same time, mushrooms contain the same types of amino acids that meat actually contains. The high protein content of some mushrooms is another reason why they taste good.
