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.
 
Buy them in extract form like I do.
