mushrooms have a fairly high protein content, typically 20-30% crude protein as a percentage of dry matter. However there is extreme variation among species (3.5% in Cantharellus cibarius, 44% in Agaricus bisporus). High protein content makes them an ideal food because they contain all the amino acids essential to human nutrition. There are about eight essential amino acids, that is, those which cannot be produced by the human body, and so must be consumed in the diet daily. Mushrooms can be an important dietary source of these amino acids.
