Though they have a starchy-like texture, mushrooms are actually very low in carbs. In fact, a one-cup serving size of white mushrooms (raw) only has about 2 grams of carbs, and 1 of those grams is fiber, the type of carbs that are good for your body. White mushrooms are also packed with important nutrients, such as zinc, manganese, vitamin C, protein, folate, vitamin D, niacin, vitamin B6, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, potassium, copper, phosphorus, and selenium.
Several studies have also revealed that white mushrooms offer anti-inflammatory properties, which can boost your health in a number of ways. In other words, even if you aren’t trying to lose weight, you should try to eat more of these fungi. Munch on white mushrooms for a snack, add them to a salad or serve them alongside your favorite meat. If you want some added flavor, cook them in unsalted butter.
