Food revolution day: The role of mushrooms in ones health and its cholesterol reducing properties.

19/05/2012

As I join others in the world on this day: Food revolution day. I would like to call upon all Zimbabweans to pay atention to what they eat. I would also like to encourage people to know their health status all the time last but not least physical activity is crucial to ones health.

As a mushroom farmer I am happy to play my role in building a health society in my small way.

Mushrooms are rich in the non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) chitin and beta-gluten. Recent research demonstrates that these NSP, or dietary fibre, can help to reduce blood cholesterol and protect against heart disease.

Let’s fight obesity and we will reduce diseases associated with it, mushrooms do not have fat and yet they are rich in protein,vitamins and minerals.
