Lunch intervention*: Grow Your Own Yellow Oyster Mushroom

popuplogoPleurotus citrinopileatus also know as the golden oyster mushroom or Yellow Oyster Mushroom is a popular mushroom in Asia and Eastern Europe. Like most other Oyster Mushrooms, it is a wood decay fungus – a bit like a vegan mushroom, compared to the common white button mushroom which digests animal manure. They can convert 100 g of organic refuse into 50-70 g of fresh mushrooms, which are up to 30% protein. They are a great source of anti-oxydants and have reportedly antihyperglycemic properties in diabetes patients.
