Brief profile:

While considered a rare and expensive delicacy in the 17th century, today the button mushroom is a familiar edible mushroom that is very popular around the world. This is not just because the mushroom with white to brownish fruiting bodies can be eaten both in raw and cooked form and because it delights connoisseurs with a slightly nutty flavour, but also because it is easy to grow and thrives in gardens or on meadows as well as in forests or in drier areas.

The button mushroom contains a wide range of components, from conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) to polysaccharides, proteoglycans and steroids. It contains numerous substances such as niacin and biotin as well as vitamins B, C, D, E and K. It also contains important minerals such as potassium, phosphorus, iron and zinc. What’s more, it is popular due to its low sodium and purine content.
