Chestnut mushroom
Agaricus bisporus

This mushroom has a long shelf life and deep, nutty flavour and stays intact after preparation.


The chestnut mushroom is immediate family of the white mushroom. The nutritional value is the same, but the taste is not: it’s deeper and slightly nutty. The chestnut mushroom has a longer shelf-life than the white mushroom, can handle temperature changes and contains more dry matter – (which means: a lower water percentage) – whereby much more mushroom remains after cooking. Thanks to its brown colour, you won’t see any spots/bruises due to picking or handling. This means the chestnut mushroom looks better longer.
