Shiitake Mushroom History

In the 12th century, shiitake mushroom cultivation began in the mountains of central China. Using fallen trees and then wood logs, early cultivators were able to plant spores and help nature produce a larger crop. A fragrant and delicious edible mushroom, shiitake is now the second most popular cultivated mushroom in the world.

Shiitake Mushroom Uses

The shiitake mushroom is prized around the world for its properties. It is one of the most popular sources of protein in China, Japan, and the rest of Asia. Its popularity is not due to its ample protein but its delicious flavor and other medicinal attributes.

As a food source, Shiitake contains all eight of the essential amino acids in a better ratio than meat, milk, eggs, or soy beans. Not to mention they contain an excellent combination of vitamins and mineral including A, B, B12, C, and D. In addition, Shiitake produces a fat-absorbing compound which is perfect for those wanting to lose weight. It's no wonder why the shiitake is also known as the "miracle mushroom".

    This is an excellent shiitake extract. I am so pleased with it! Very fine powder, rich smell, dissolves easily. The description above indicates this is a nammex product. If so it is definitely top of the line. I'm so happy to have found this, and for an affordable price. Thank you so much for carrying it.
