Native to China, Shiitake mushrooms (non-GMO) have been eaten for nearly 6000 years. The mushrooms gained prominence during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), where they were considered the "elixir of life" and reserved to be enjoyed only by the emperor and his family.


Aside from being a natural source of protein, shiitake mushrooms supply niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, potassium iron, and are a natural source of vitamins A, B, and C.

When used in their sun-dried form they provide a valuable dose of Vitamin D, found in very few foods. They contain more than 50 different enzymes, including pepsin that supports healthy digestion and asparaginase, which is a substance that may support a healthy immune response.
