Consumer Vademecum

Recognize the quality

The mushroom season is the beginning of rituals issues of buying a product on which reigns misinformation. The Mushrooms Valentina in support of the European campaign of Champignon, which has the product being promoted in its various consumption, has created a “handbook of the consumer”, in order to distinguish the mushroom quality. Here are the features:

Compactness:

signal important as the freshness of the complaint Champignon, retention of flavors and fragrances, you head touching the cap of the mushroom that has to be hard and compact

whiteness:

signal of freshness and above all quality of the mushroom, well-kept throughout the supply chain, from producer to distributor

the hat must be closed:

This is evidenced by the fact that the blades inside are not seen as a thin veil still binds the cap to the stem of the mushroom. It is a sign of freshness

the slats should be pink:

in the case in which the hat is opened, the fungus can be considered still good if the lamellae are inside pink or otherwise light color

the fungus must have:

  • deformations,
  • spots,
  • wormholes,
  • defects in general

does not affect the quality:

  • the size,
  • the fungus big or small has the same qualitative characteristics,
  • the choice of the consumer depends only on the size of culinary uses.

Finally, the fungus is not stripping, unless it is not dirty and / or damaged so evident
