Our organic shiitake powder is a pale brown, fine powder made from the fruiting body of the shiitake mushroom, also known as Lentinus edodes. The mushroom bodies are harvested, dried, granulated and then ground into a fine powder. The shiitake mushroom is native to East Asia and is one of the most commonly cultivated mushrooms in the world, the Japanese shii referring to the tree around which it first grew.
Shiitake, which has been consumed medicinally in Asia for centuries, is rich in polysaccharides (our variety is 3%) and other controlled bioactive compounds, which are probably responsible for many of its health benefits.
Shiitake contains lentinan, a polysaccharide extracted from Lentinula edodes and used in dietary supplements. It also contains β-glucan, a major bioactive component. This mushroom is now also revered for its culinary properties.
It is certified to EU organic standards under Regulation (EU) 2018/848 and the Soil Association's British Organic Standards code GBORG-05.
