Are these OK for diabetics?

Thanks.

Sure. Unless there is something weird about the one
you referenced.


I eat mushrooms all the time. I use them as a sub
for hash browns as a side for my fried eggs and
on my fried cheese pizzas.

Sometimes I saute them with onions and use them for
toppings. Or add cream and make an awesome cream sauce.

Tip: even though your have already sauted the onions,
add some onion powder too. The both have slightly
different flavors and they complement each other.
Yummy!

The campestris is what you're most likely to find on supermarket shelves.

I've been reading up on wild varieties - the toxic ones are relatively few,
but the consequences of a mistake can range from severe gastric trouble, to
cascade organ failure over 2 or 3 weeks.

The guide books list some very delicious wild mushrooms - I presume there's
some economic reason they're not cultivated for the supermarket.

OTOH: some books mention that certain mushrooms listed as toxic are OK if
prepared correctly - I won't be doing that experiment any time soon.

There's a huge range of mushrooms that are listed as edible, but many have
the footnote that while they won't make you ill - they're not worth the
effort.

Unless I discover a foolproof method of distinguishing edible from toxic; my
study is likely to remain theoretical.

A customer who was on his forth wife told my wife that his first
two wives died from eating toxic mushrooms. But, his third wife
dies of a broken neck. She wouldn't eat the mushrooms.
