Shiitake mushroom is a type of capped fungi that most commonly grows on decaying trees in parts of Japan, the US, Canada, and China. It’s the second most popular type of mushroom in the world, but despite this, many people are unaware of its incredible health properties. We transform the highest quality, sustainably-sourced shiitake mushrooms into a versatile extract powder which is ready to be used.

How Do I Use Shiitake Mushroom?
The finely-milled powder dissolves almost instantly in liquids, which makes it extremely easy to use. It can be added to smoothies to increase their nutritional content, blended into juices, or simply added to warm water to create a tea.

If you're feeling creative, you can blend it with some tonic herbs and superfoods to create a special elixir. It works well particularly well when used with other medicinal mushrooms such as maitake, turkey tail and lion's mane. If you can't decide which mushrooms to start with, then you may like our medicinal mushroom complex which contains a blend of eight of the most-loved medicinal mushrooms around.

To make your shiitake miso soup, simply dissolve 3tsp of miso with 1tsp of our shiitake complex into warm water, and then lightly whisk until it has fully dissolved.

You can even get creative with your miso bowl by adding in other goodies such as vegetables, herbs, and even other types of medicinal mushrooms such as tremella. The shiitake miso soup can be enjoyed warm or cold.
Simple Shiitake Root Juice Recipe
When you think of juices, adding shiitake doesn't usually jump to mind, yet this recipe works particularly well, as the mushroom's earthiness complements the other ingredients. You will need both a juicer and a blender to make this recipe. If possible, sue a cold-press juicer, as it will help to retain more of the nutrients in the fruits and vegetables that you are juicing.
You Will Need
- 4 Apples
- 2 large beetroots
- Beetroot greens
- 1 tsp of shiitake powder
Wash your fruits and vegetables and then cut them into pieces that are small enough to fit into your juicer. Juice all of the fresh ingredients. Transfer the juice into your blender and then add in the shiitake powder. Blend until you create a smooth consistency and all the powder has been blitzed into the juice. Pour over ice and enjoy immediately. You can also freeze the juice into ice cube trays and then use them as pretty pink ice cubes to jazz-up other juices and elixirs.
