Summer Best – Mushrooms

Premier Mushrooms Colusa, CA

California and Raley’s farmers for more than 10 years.

Nutrition

Research suggests nutrient dense mushrooms may have protective benefits for brain health and memory.(1)

The Blend – replacing a portion of ground meat with chopped mushrooms in recipes such as burgers and meatballs – cuts fat, adds nutrition and helps stretch your grocery dollar.

Tips from Bob Murphy, Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Premier Mushrooms.

How to Select

Avoid dark circles, discoloration or any mushrooms that appear slimy.

For white and cremini mushrooms, look for caps with a consistent white or dark brown color, respectively.
Portabellas should have a firm, dark cap and a stem that’s a solid beige color.

How to Store

Store in the refrigerator in the original packaging, which has a breathable wrap.

To clean white and cremini mushrooms, rinse gently with water. Gently brush portabellas clean with a damp cloth.

A Farmer’s Story

Premier Mushrooms produces 330,000 pounds of mushrooms per week, all year-round. The farm uses Dutch technology in 64 climate-controlled rooms filled with metal growing beds.
