actually no, all mushrooms have a tiny bit of B12, because they are grown in manure, and you can't get all of the manure out of the mushroom stems.
We grow shaggy mains, (all wild) in near a cherry tree, and we never planted them, we also grow other mushrooms, but not sure what they are called.
We don't fertilize our grass or plants, but we did put cow and chicken compost down with topsoil and that is where the mushroom spores came from originally.
anyway, I never wash mushrooms, as I figure this is the perfect place to get my B12, and yes, I know it's gross, I kiss my dog too, but hey, I'm healthy, what can I say?

Funny thing is I can't eat muchrooms cooked, they are like rubber and get stuck in my stomach staple. But raw they pass right through just fine. They are some good eating and do your umuine system alot of good too. I wish I had some right now. I am all out of them. I will be sure to pick up a new batch when we go shopping again a Great rawfood Douglas in Calif :)

Douglas, if you want some realy super mushrooms, you need to make Alissa's Pesto stuffed mushrooms, which are so very wonderful you won't believe it.
I like them dehydrated to warm, others like them totally raw
