Oyster mushrooms are full of oyster flavor, and when they grow, they even look like oysters! Officially known by the Latin name Pleurotus ostreatus, this mushroom is also referred to as oyster shelf, tree oyster, hiratake, straw mushroom and tamogitake. This super snack originated in Germany and is cultivated and used in Asian cooking as meat replacements or as oyster sauce. With Shroom Snack Premium Mushroom Jerky, you can take this awesome oyster flavor anywhere. We slice, cook, spice and dehydrate our mushrooms for the perfect taste, with the convenience of quality jerky.
Not only are oyster mushrooms considered a delectable treat, but they are also packed with nutrients. Instead of reaching for carbohydrate-rich snacks that don’t provide health benefits and leave you wanting, pick up a bag of mushroom jerky. You can feel good about what you’re eating, while also enjoying its numerous health benefits.
These mushrooms provide 12 percent of the needed daily iron intake for men, in just one cup, and 6 percent of the intake for women. Iron moves oxygen through the blood to support tissues. It helps produce energy and remove toxins in the liver. Iron is also essential for the immune system. It aids the growth of T lymphocytes, which destroy tumor cells and viruses. Keep your body protected and energized with a handful of Shroom Snack jerky!
You don’t have to drink milk to get your daily intake of vitamin D. Our mushroom jerky provides the perfect vegan snacks for filling your body with this crucial vitamin. Mushrooms are a plant source of vitamin D, which isn’t present in many other plants. The oyster variety contains ergosterol, which turns into vitamin D from exposure to ultraviolet light.
Vitamin D is responsible for:
– Helping your body absorb calcium, keeping your bones strong
– Lowering your blood pressure to protect your heart
– Aiding in cell growth and enzyme production for a healthy immune system
According to reports from the USDA Nutrient Data Laboratory, one cup of oyster mushrooms provides 4 percent of the daily intake.
Metabolize fats, proteins and carbohydrates with our healthy jerky. It is packed with niacin, which not only metabolizes these important enzymes but also helps repair damaged DNA. Niacin also aids in lowering bad cholesterol and raising the good kind. When you take our jerky to work, to the trails or even just to your couch, you’re fueling your body with important nutrients to help you stay healthy and strong.
Want even more reasons to savor our mouthwatering jerky? The oyster mushroom provides ergothioneine, an antioxidant that lowers systemic inflammation. In fact, out of all fungi, the oyster mushroom is one of the most packed with this antioxidant. Ergothioneine also may limit plaque buildup in the arteries, protecting you from cardiovascular disease.
