    Given that there r even treads here on spirulina n brown rice, I guess its fit to ask this.

    What are mushrooms made of? Given its spongy/fleshy texture n looks, It does look a lot like protein. Is it true? Or what is it made of then?

    If its protein its kewl, coz its cheap, does not spoil easily n can b added to every meal.

    It depends on the mushroom. Some are more energy-dense than others, but they are all rich in nutrients like vitamins and minerals.

    They're carbohydrates.

    Oh boy.

    Of which mushrooms are you speaking?
    Personally, I do not ingest mushrooms for mineral/protein/carb.
    These are the ones I take:
    Reishi
    Maiitake (d-fraction)
    Turkey Tail
    Cordyceps
    Shiitake

    I mainly use those to boost my immunity/white blood cell count. Medicinal value.
    One serving with 2 cups of green tea (not the bag, gunpowder all the way).
    Three servings a day during change of season when viruses seem to be more common, in green tea of course.
    I add to the change of season protocol:
    Astragalus
    Royal Agaricus

    So sorry I can't give you actual nutritional facts of the mushroom for I don't know them.
    However, I hope this keeps you well.

    Interesting. What can you eat instead of mushrooms to get the same effects? I personally hate mushrooms in almost any form.

    First number is the value per 100 gram serving. I don't know what the significance of the other values are. They represent 'data points' and 'std error'
