Organic Maitake Powder (50g)

Our Organic Maitake powder is made from mushrooms we culture, grow and freeze-dry on site offering you the freshest Maitake powder on the market. The majority of Maitake powder/capsules on offer are manufactured from dehydrated mushrooms. While dehydrating mushrooms to preserve them is an age-old tactic, around 20-30% of the medicinal benefits are lost when compared to fresh mushrooms during the dehydrating process. Freeze-drying preserves 99% of the mushrooms benefits offering a far superior product than anything else on sale currently in the UK. We harvest our mushrooms and freeze-dry them immediately which brings you the freshest possible products.

So what is Organic Maitake powder and why would I need it?

Maitake mushroom (Grifola frondosa) has an earthy aroma and a wholesome taste. Rich in vitamin D, it helps everything from cancer support to bone health. Its distinctive shape has earned it the nickname “hen-of-the-woods.” It’s also known as sheep head and king of the mushrooms, with its most common name — Maitake — meaning “dancing mushroom.”Maitake has a circular cluster of wavy caps and grows in shelf-like formations at the base of hardwood and softwood trees. It tends to favour oaks.

Resembling a fan-like hen tail, Maitake has gray-brown caps and white-cream undersides containing one to three pores. It belongs to the polypore group of mushrooms with their large fruiting bodies.

These attractive fungi have an earthy aroma, crunchy texture, and taste similar to hearty game meat. They grow up to three feet wide and can weigh as much as 50 pounds, although most Maitake average about 10 pounds. Like other mushrooms, Maitake offers beneficial compounds that can improve your health.

Each bag contains 50g
