Organic Shiitake Mushroom Powder is not as bad as it sounds….shii refers to the type of tree this mushroom was first known to grow around.
Our Organic Shiitake Powder is a pale-brown fine powder produced from shiitake mushroom fruiting bodies, also known as Lentinus edodes. The fruiting bodies of the mushrooms are harvested, dried, granulated and then ground into a fine powder. The shiitake mushroom is native to Asia and amongst the most commonly cultivated fungi in the world. Consumed medicinally in Asia for centuries, shiitake are rich in polysaccharides (our variety is 3%) and other verified bio-active substances, likely responsible for a range of health benefits. Shiitake contains Lentinan, a polysaccharide extracted from Lentinula edodes and used in nutraceuticals. It also contains β-Glucan, a major bioactive component.
Organic Shiitake Mushroom is extremely versatile. It has a full bodied, earthy flavour and is ideal to use in any savoury dish. It particularly goes really well with sauces and soups. Shiitake mushroom powder also makes a really good nutritious tea.
