Chanterelles: one of the yummiest mushrooms and very healthy
The chanterelle, also known as the golden chanterelle or girolle, is an edible mushroom which tastes delicious. It has a mild, creamy, peppery flavour. Chanterelles quickly absorb the flavour of whatever is in the vicinity, so be careful what you keep next to them. They should always be stored in a cool, dry place so that they keep for as long as possible. Most of the chanterelles you buy in the supermarket or from specialist shops are harvested wild. Growing chanterelles commercially is particularly difficult because chanterelles grow directly on tree roots. You can buy chanterelles fresh, dried or tinned. Obviously, the healthiest option is to eat fresh chanterelles.
Chanterelles are healthy and perfect for weight loss
Chanterelles are a very healthy variety of mushroom. They are particularly high in protein, vitamin C, calcium and sodium. This makes them very good for your bones and moisture balance and for the production of red blood cells. Trying to lose weight? Chanterelles are low in calories and are therefore perfect to include in your meals when you’re trying to lose weight. They’re also very high in fibre, so they leave you feeling full.
