Markets stock a variety of cultivated mushrooms, but many people prefer wild mushrooms, which are often more flavorful. Mushrooms contain a lot of protein, as well as fats and mineral substances, such as iron, calcium, zinc, iodine, phosphorus, manganese, sulphur and cuprum. Dried mushrooms contain up to 30% protein and 100 g is enough for a daily protein balance. A broth prepared from dried porcini is 7 times more nourishing than meat broth.

As for vitamins, many kinds of mushrooms are as good as vegetables and fruit. For example, chanterelles contain as much vitamin C as citrus and currants.

Porcini (Beliy Grib): Found in pine, spruce and mixed forests. Mainly used dried, as it accumulates a rich flavour; Boletus edulis, commonly known as penny bun, porcino or cep. Prized as an ingredient in various foods, is an edible mushroom held in high regard in many cuisines, and is commonly prepared and eaten in soups, pasta, or risotto. The mushroom is low in fat and digestible carbohydrates, and high in protein, vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber. Although it is sold commercially, it has not been successfully grown in cultivation. Available fresh in autumn in Central, Southern and Northern Europe, it is most often dried, packaged and distributed worldwide. Keeping its flavor after drying, it is then reconstituted and used in cooking. Boletus edulis is one of the few fungi that are sold pickled. The fungus also produces a variety of organic compounds with a diverse spectrum of biological activity, including the steroid derivative ergo sterol, a sugar binding protein, antiviral compounds, antioxidants, and phytochelatins, which give the organism resistance to toxic heavy metals.
