    Apparently they are all grown through a layer of peat now (not poo) and are fine to eat raw.

    Any ideas? The info I'm getting is conflicting so far...


    Ok so I don't like raw mushrooms so have never given them to DS so have never really looked into it but I just called my SIL, who is a nutritionist and she said a few raw mushrooms here or there are no problem
    But, like with beans, they are better for you and won't cause any problems if they are cooked , too many raw mushrooms may cause a upset stomach because of certain chemicals they contain that we can't digest properly , she said even squeezing lemon juice will help as it breaks down the chemical so if you use them in a salad add lemon juice but don't eat large amounts regularly, but don't discourage your kids from eating them as they are highly nutritious but just lightly cook them first!
