How about mushrooms as a gift?


In English it is mushroom; in French it is champignon; in Japanese it is haratake, tsukuritake, or western mushroom. In western countries people simply call them mushrooms.

In Japan, they were grown for the first time in the early years of the Meiji era. It was in the Taisho era, however, when they were grown in earnest. In all, it was one hundred years after their introduction to Japan when fresh mushrooms first appeared on the market.

Even though the Japanese think of exquisite western cuisine whenever they hear of mushrooms, people can enjoy them simply sauteed with butter or just slice fresh mushrooms and use them in salads. Being able to eat these mushrooms raw is one of their features; you can taste their subtle flavor and sweetness, enjoying their good taste and unique firmness.

Mushrooms are a healthy, low-calorie food and are rich in protein and contain vitamins B1 and B2. They contain several kinds of amino acids, including glutamic acid, which gives them a good taste. These mushrooms contain 2.5 times as much protein as Japanese mushrooms (shiitake). Because mushrooms have the effect of quickening cell regeneration, they contribute to healthy skin, hair and nails. Mushrooms are also effective in the prevention of mouth ulcers, inflammation of the cornea, and adult diseases like hardening of the arteries.

The fact that mushroom extract deodorizes effectively has attracted considerable attention lately. It has a good effect on bad breath as well as reducing the odor of stools. It is now known that taking mushroom extract continuously has a positive effect on bowel movements, solving constipation problems, and deodorizing body odor. Consequently, it is contained in many kinds of products.

Western mushrooms are white, cream, and brown, but the white kind is grown most widely.

The original mushroom is the brown one; it has a rich taste. The cream-colored mushroom is only processed into canned mushrooms.
