Shiitake are edible mushrooms native to East Asia. While typically eaten like vegetables, shiitake are actually fungi that grow naturally on hardwood trees. Around 83% of shiitake are grown in Japan, although the United States, Canada, Singapore, and China also produce them. You can find them fresh, dried, or in powder form.

 

Shiitake offers good amounts of fiber, as well as B vitamins and some minerals. In addition, shiitake contain many of the same amino acids as meat. They also boast polysaccharides, terpenoids, sterols, and lipids, some of which have immune-boosting, cholesterol-lowering effects

 

How to use: Stir 1- 2 teaspoons of the mushroom powder into warm water. If mixing into milk based hot drinks we recommend mixing with a small amount of water first and then adding your milk and sweetener of choice.
