Description of mushrooms

Mushroom pickers begin picking spring mushrooms in May and finish in late October, under favorable weather conditions, in November. Before going to the forest, it is important for a beginner to take time to study the description of the characteristics and types of forest plants.

Often they use the directory of mushrooms of the Stavropol Territory, which helps to correctly figure out which mushrooms are edible and which are poisonous.

The general division occurs into 4 types:

  • edible;
  • conditionally edible;
  • inedible;
  • poisonous.

The classification is made, depending on the safe use of food. Edible suitable for raw food diet, conditionally edible safe for the body, but at the same time they have low taste. They are pre-soaked and then boiled or fried.

Inedible will not cause harm, they are not used in cooking because of the unpleasant taste, difficulty of preparation and weak aroma.

Poisonous, such as fly agaric, require special preparation for use in food. Of these, in a simple way at home, toxins cannot be removed. According to the description, the use of fly agaric is fatal.

Taste characteristics

According to the taste value, edible and conditionally edible are divided into 4 categories: tasty and aromatic (varieties of whites, muffins), worse in taste (traps, butter and boletus), medium-quality taste and slightly aromatic (mushrooms, flywheels, morels, etc.), the lowest grade related to conditionally edible (oyster mushrooms, blackberries, spider webs, dung beetles, etc.)

Severe poisoning occurs due to improper preparation of dishes with wild mushrooms of the 4th category. It is important to approach the process with all responsibility, carefully sort out the crop, rinse several times in running water and cook strictly according to the recipe.

Mushrooms are 90% water, with zero fat content, and therefore have a low calorie content. The composition revealed 18 amino acids. They contain vitamins A, B, D, E and nicotinic acid, which contribute to the overall strengthening of the body.

Regular use has an anticancer, antitumor effect. Natural immunostimulation occurs due to the substance beta-glucan, which is part of the fungi.

Harmful properties

The treat does not apply to dietary products: it is difficult to digest it. The food is heavy, it can not be eaten haphazardly to those who have problems with the gastrointestinal tract. In the stomach, the digestion process slows down. Chitin, which is part of the legs of autumn varieties, when improperly prepared, starts the process of decay.

In the environment, in the soil, there are toxins that are completely absorbed by the root system of organisms, especially those growing near busy roads. After improper preparation without soaking and thorough washing, botulism occurs in several waters.
