Dear Angel
Mushrooms are an excellent food with a low energy content and they are rich in niacin and potassium. Raw mushrooms or mushrooms that are prepared without adding lots of butter or cream, are regarded as 'free foods' because they have such a low energy content (i.e. 105 kJ/100g on their own, 573 kJ/100g when fried in butter!).
Enjoy
