Gourmet Mushrooms hosts attendees from the Culinary Institute's "Flavor, Quality and the American Menu" conference.

Flavor, Quality & American Menus is an annual invitational leadership retreat co-presented by The Culinary Institute of America and the University of California, Davis. This invitation-only event provides a venue for networking, sharing of information and ideas, and advancing both American agriculture and the food and beverage industries that depend on it.

Gourmet Mushrooms' CEO David Law cited as co-author in the July 2014 issue of Journal of Nutrition article summarizing the Mushrooms and Health Summit held in Washington, D.C. last Fall

Although considered a vegetable in dietary advice, mushrooms are fungi, set apart by vitamin B-12 in very low quantity but in the same form found in meat, ergosterol converted with UV light to vitamin D2, and conjugated linoleic acid.Mushrooms are a rare source of ergothioneine aswell as selenium, fiber, and several other vitamins and minerals. Some preclinical and clinical studies suggest impacts of mushrooms on cognition, weight management, oral health, and cancer risk. Preliminary evidence suggests that mushrooms may support healthy immune and inflammatory responses through interaction with the gutmicrobiota, enhancing development of adaptive immunity, and improved immune cell functionality. In addition to imparting direct nutritional and health benefits, analysis of U.S. food intake survey data reveals thatmushrooms are associated with higher dietary quality. Also, early sensory research suggests thatmushrooms blended with meats and lower sodium dishes are well liked and may help to reduce intakes of red meat and salt without compromising taste. As research progresses on the specific health effects of mushrooms, there is a need for effective communication efforts to leverage mushrooms to improve overall dietary quality.
