If you are looking for a hearty low-calorie option to add to your diet, look no further than portobello mushrooms.
After a long time of obscurity, this larger relative of crimini mushrooms rose to prominence in the 1980s and soon became a favorite of food lovers all over the world.
Because of their meaty texture and rich flavor, these mushrooms are a great option to serve stuffed or in hamburgers and barbecues. But not only are they tasty, they also come with a host of amazing health benefits.
Portobello Mushrooms Are Low in Calories
One portobello mushroom has about 25 calories and no fat or cholesterol, making it low in energy density. In short, this means that you can eat considerable amounts of portobello mushrooms without consuming many calories. Therefore, they can be great allies for those who want to lose weight or simply reduce their daily caloric intake.
A Very Good Source of Potassium
Our bodies need potassium because it improves nerve function and plays a key role in other body processes. A diet rich in potassium may also protect against strokes and reduce blood pressure and water retention. With 630 micrograms of potassium per cup, equal to 18% of the daily recommended intake, portobello mushrooms are a great source of this important mineral.
A Very Good Source of Vitamin B-3
Also known as Niacin, this nutrient acts as an antioxidant and may help prevent heart disease and type 1 diabetes. It also boosts brain function and may reduce the symptoms of arthritis. You can get 7.2 micrograms of Niacin, or 36% of the recommended daily value, with just one cup (121 grams) of sliced portobello mushrooms.
Rich in Fiber
One cup of sliced portobello mushrooms (121 grams) provides 2.7 grams of nutritional fiber. This is about 11% of the daily recommended value. Fiber is important because it promotes regular bowel movements and helps keep cholesterol and sugar levels under control.
