pink oyster (pleurotus djamor)

These mushrooms are harvested before the cap starts turning white and curling.

They have an extremely short shelf-life, generally 3-5 days, which is why they are not seen at the supermarket. As far as the health benefits are concerned, it’s loaded with antioxidants, which not only reduce cell damage but also prevent it. In addition, it can fight free radicals, lowering the chances of cancer.

Flavour & texture

The pink oyster mushrooms have a stronger flavour than other oyster mushrooms. Many people associate the flavour to bacon or ham. The mushrooms have a light pink colour, which makes them appear similar to ham as well. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that these are one of the most unique tasting mushrooms.

Pink oyster mushrooms have a slightly chewy texture, which is why it’s commonly used as a meat substitute.
