About Wild Hedgehog Mushrooms

One of the less well-known varieties of wild mushrooms, hedgehog mushrooms shouldn't be overlooked. Hedgehogs are smallish brown and white mushrooms that get their name from having small tooth-like projections rather than gills underneath their caps (they are sometimes called sweet tooth mushrooms also). They have a firm, dense texture and a delightfully rich, buttery flavour (sometimes with a slight peppery note) that some describe as chanterelle-esque.

The trace mineral germanium, found in mushrooms, is noted for its antiviral and anti-tumour effects. Germanium also energises the body. With so many healing abilities and such variety of flavours and textures, mushrooms may help the body generate energy and offer protection against tumours and virus infection.

Mushrooms have zero fat and more protein than any vegetable except soybeans. Research at Penn State, U.S.A shows that after five hours exposure to UV light, one serving of even white button mushroom contains 869 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin D. Mushrooms are rich in minerals, such as phosphorus, potassium and zinc, and are the only item in the produce department with any appreciable selenium.

Thank you Real Foods for having such an interesting selection of wild mushrooms to choose from - I love the variety. I am not sure which I like best so I have to keep trying them again, and again.
