Tips & Notes
Portobello mushrooms are mature cremini mushrooms that have an intense flavor and a meaty texture. These mushrooms provide a number of essential nutrients but don’t contain many calories, making them a nutritious addition to any diet.
This is especially true if you use them in place of meat, which is higher in fat, cholesterol and calories.
Portobello mushrooms are a good source of fiber, with 11 percent of the daily value, and they contain a lot of water, making them low in energy density. Foods that are low in energy density, which means they don’t contain many calories per gram, can help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.
You can eat a large volume of these foods without consuming very many calories. For example, a whole cup of sliced, grilled Portobello mushrooms has only 35 calories. Use low-energy-density foods in place of foods that are higher in energy density, such as fatty foods or foods that are high in sugar, for the best weight-loss results.
