The shiitake (Lentinula edodes) is an edible mushroom, which occurs naturally in Japan, China and Korea. Here the mushroom has been grown for centuries and appreciated for its taste and smell. In Asian cuisine, it is a commonly used mushroom. The shiitake grows on hard woods such as beech, oak, walnut and chestnut. The shiitake has a light brown to dark brown cap and belongs next to the mushroom to the most cultivated mushrooms in the world.
Processing to Shiitake Mushroom Powder
The shiitake is harvested when it has grown well, but the cap edge is still slightly curled down. The cap should already be loose from the stem, otherwise the shiitake is still too young. If the cap is too wide outwards, the shiitake is already too old. After harvesting, the mushroom is cut into pieces and put in the oven to dry. Then it is processed into a fine shiitake mushroom powder.

Fairness towards manufacturers and consumers

We know where our food comes from and take local conditions carefully into consideration. At the same time, we are aware of our great responsibility and choose, whenever we can, fair produced products. It is important to us that our producers have the possibility to earn what their effort and their products are worth.
Many of our products are also organically grown. We firmly believe that in the long run, this is the only way to grow food that benefits the body and nourishes humanity. Food that has grown in real earth. Foods that are full to the brim with nutrients and vitamins. Foods that have been processed as little as possible and which have been known for centuries for their positive effects on our body.
Healthy food as a starting point
Food should be enjoyment and always give our body exactly what it needs to develop as positively as possible and to heal itself. Food should not make you sick, should not always be' fast' and should definitely not be stuffed with flavour enhancers, dyes and preservatives.
It is exactly this awareness that we want to achieve with our product range, because we sell food and care products that are produced as naturally as possible and give people exactly what they need: energy, well-being and pleasure in eating.
