Mushroom substrates from Wallhausen for highest product quality


As far as can be officially documented, mushroom cultivation began in the mid-17th century. However, mushroom growing in quantities of any real significance developed only in the early 20th century. The number of businesses producing mushrooms in specially constructed, darkened and climate-controlled halls kept increasing. Thus, the delicious fungus, which previously had only been available to high society and upscale gastronomy, gradually became affordable to practically everybody.

Fresh mushrooms have a high health value due to their content of vitamins D, B2, biotin and niacin as well as the minerals potassium, iron, copper, selenium and phosphorus. At the same time, their caloric content of 15 per 100 gr is hardly relevant.
