Our upcoming Monday, June 12 meeting will feature a local professor, Dr. Ken Kassenbrock, who will speak to us about his area of expertise “Mushrooms and Nutrition.” As a cell biologist, he brings a “big picture” view of how fungi are utilized in animal…and human…nutrition. Of course, he will also discuss how fungi get THEIR nutrition in native environments. Dr.Kassenbrock will explore the concept of mushrooms as “functional foods,” foods that provide additional benefits beyond the calories and nutrients they contain.Find out more »
