Shiitake mushroom takes its name from the combination of the words take, which means mushroom in Japanese, and shii, the name of the tree where this mushroom grows; As a protein-rich food, it is the 2nd most consumed mushroom variety in the world. The hat part of the shiitake mushroom, which attracts attention with its dark brown colour and textured structure, can grow between 5 and 10 cm.

Shiitake mushroom, which is very rich in vitamins B2, B5 and B6, also plays an effective role in lowering cholesterol and strengthening immune cells called macrophages. To clean the shiitake mushroom, you can wipe it with a clean and moisture-retaining cloth before use. If you prefer to wash the mushroom before consuming it, it is useful not to keep the shiitake mushroom in water for too long due to its porous structure. Finally, sauteing shiitake mushrooms is the most delicious alternative to preserve both their flavour and nutritional values. Our Dried Shiitake Mushrooms are vegan & vegetarian.
