Shiitake mushrooms are rich in vitamins. Above all, it contains vitamin B5. Pantothenic acid, vitamin B5, is contained in shiitake mushrooms - up to 2500 µg per 100g. This important vitamin is involved in carbohydrate metabolism in the human body - and also in the synthesis of cholesterol. A deficiency of vitamin B5 can be caused by symptoms such as stomach pain, fatigue, and abnormal sensations. These abnormal or abnormal sensations manifest themselves in numbness or tingling - sometimes even burning - in the feet.
In addition, shiitake mushrooms contain a large amount of biotin - at least among meatless foods. A quantity of 100 g contains 15 µg of the vitamin. Biotin is an important component of various enzymes. It is relevant for amino and fatty acid metabolism and the activation of energy reserves. If you have a biotin deficiency, the symptoms can be very different. Muscle pain, fatigue and sleepiness, rash, dizziness or loss of appetite may occur. Under certain circumstances, a distorted perception of touch stimuli can also occur.
300 g of shiitake mushrooms contain the recommended daily dose of 45 µg. This value applies to adults as well as seniors, pregnant and breastfeeding women. Children and adolescents need slightly less biotin. Anyone who eats a mixed diet usually meets their biotin requirements without any problems. There is no need to fear an overdose of vitamin B7 - there is no clear upper limit.
Since vitamin B7 is almost insensitive, only small losses can occur in heat. In addition, by consuming shiitake mushrooms you will receive a significant amount of vitamin D.
