– White fungus is commonly known as the poor man’s bird’s nest and is a rich source of collagen.
– White fungus is also called snow fungus. It is similar in texture to black fungus (wood ear), which is commonly used in Chinese cold dishes and hot pot. White fungus is commonly cooked in sweet soups, with pear or papaya. The taste is refreshing and it also helps to nourish the skin. It is worth mentioning that white fungus can apparently help reduce lung damage from smoking too.
