What Are Button Mushrooms?
White mushrooms (Agaricus bisporus) belong to the Fungi kingdom and constitute about 90% of the mushrooms.
Agaricus bisporus can be harvested at varying stages of maturity. When young and immature, they are known as white mushrooms if they have a white color, or crimini mushrooms if they have a slight brown shade.
When fully grown, they’re known as portobello mushrooms, which are bigger and darker. White mushrooms are also known as table, common, button, or champignon mushrooms. They have a small stem, smooth cap, and mild flavor that pairs well with many dishes.

How to add them to your diet
Due to their mild flavor and soft texture, white mushrooms make a great addition to a variety of dishes.
Both the caps and stems are edible, and you can eat them cooked or raw.
Here are a couple of suggestions regarding how to add them to your diet:
Slice them and add them raw to your favorite salad.
Sautée them in olive oil with garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper for a side of cooked mushrooms.
Add them to a stir-fry along with other vegetables and your choice of protein.
Cook them with scrambled eggs or add them as a filling to an omelet for a healthy breakfast.
Roast them at 350°F (176°C) with sprigs of rosemary and thyme for a crunchy snack.
Sautée them with carrots, leeks, garlic, and onions, and boil them in water to make a hearty and healthy mushroom broth.
You can also buy the powdered form and add it to your next baked treat.
Button mushrooms have the mildest flavor, which intensifies slightly when cooked. As they are the youngest mushroom, they are very firm and hold their shape throughout the cooking process.
Storage and Handling
Mushrooms don’t have to be used immediately. They’ll stay fresh for 8-10 days if you keep them refrigerated. Store bulk mushroom in a paper bag. If you purchase mushrooms in our package, it’s a good idea to remove the plastic wrap from packaged mushrooms, open up the top and cover loosely with a paper towel.
Don’t forget! You do not have to wash, soak or peel mushrooms. Simply trim the roots from the stem.
