    Is it better to eat these raw or cook to get the best out of the nutrients? I hear cooked but common sense says raw because of heat denaturization.

    I would tend to agree raw for most things, but mushrooms are an exception, there are a couple others out there, like egg whites.

    Raw mushrooms are basically a tad of fiber, and that's it.

    Do you buy or go and pick those up by yourself? If you go pick them up and dont know shrooms all that good I'd go with cooking as quite a few if not toxic are irritating without cooking like lactarius and russula are not all that dangerous but you really want to cook 'em.

    mushrooms don't tend to have an abundance of nutrition anyway, they usually are eaten because they taste good. and usually, they taste better when cooked.

    eating food isn't just an inconvenient way to get nutrition, it also can be about taste.

    Many studies (easily found on pubmed) site the phytochemicals in mushrooms can inhibit aromatase activity - I wouldn't write them off for lack of nutrition ...
