General Mushroom Properties
Mushrooms tend to be very high in B vitamins, proteins, and are incredibly high in fiber. Fiber in mushrooms is made from different types of naturally occurring polymers, the most important of which are beta-glucans. Beta-glucans are long-chain glucose molecules that are especially common in mushrooms, and research has shown they have a considerable impact on the immune system.
