Italian mushrooms also have health benefits, including a low-calorie content, plus lots of fiber and protein. They also contain B vitamins along with selenium, potassium, copper, and vitamin D.
Canned mushrooms are part of the centuries-old tradition of preserved and pickled vegetables imported from Italy. The Italian canning industry started in the 1800s with the ingenuity of Nicolas Appert, the businessman and entrepreneur who developed the innovative canning technology that extended the shelf life of preserved food, including marinated Italian mushrooms.
Today, the tradition continues with canned mushrooms from La Valle, which are grilled to perfection and preserved in oil. These tender and substantial Italian mushrooms can add a nutty and pungent flavor to pizza, pasta sauces, and other dishes. Not only can you use canned mushrooms as an ingredient in classic Italian cuisine, but it also has many uses with different styles of food. You can also incorporate it into sauces for chicken breasts or as part of the vegetable medley in Gumbo-style chicken Creole.
