Calories in Portabella Mushrooms

Frankly, I never met a portabella that I didn't like. They are exceptionally low in calories - only 22 calories for this big boy. Small on calories but big on flavor!

One portabella mushroom equals about 1 cup when sliced, chopped or diced.

Portabella Mushroom Nutrition Highlights

It's missing one nutritional element, which is a very great thing because that 'thing' is fat. It's close to zero lipid content like almost all other natural foods.

Per cup it contains 7 mg's of calcium benefits, over 1 dietary fiber gram, over 400 mg's of potassium, and over 9 grams of selenium.

Selenium hold anti-inflammatory properties, enhances immunity and assists in lowering oxidative stress in the human body.

Suggested Uses in the Kitchen for Portabella Mushrooms

* Cook in a bit of butter flavored cooking spray for zero added calories.

* Add to jarred pasta sauce to ramp-up the nutritional values.

* Enjoy raw in salads.
