Mushrooms are the only type of produce that is a source of vitamin D. Just like humans, certain mushrooms like white button, portabella, and cremini mushrooms provide the most vitamin D after exposure to UV light or sunlight.

Other fun facts about fungi is they help trees talk to each other. Fungi actually link a whole group of trees through their root systems, creating a wood wide web called the Mycorrhizal Network. This type of networking allows the trees to pass nutrients, chemical and electrical signals to each other raising an alarm when being attacked.
