How are we different?

For hundreds of years, mushroom cultivators in China have been producing some of the most potent medicinal mushrooms worldwide. Traditional Chinese medicine has guided this development for over 2,000 years, with techniques being refined to such an extent that cultivated mushrooms are now in no way inferior to their wildcrafted predecessors. Our shaggy ink cap mushrooms are sourced directly from the globally-recognised mushroom-growing region of Gutian County in Fujian. Our farming partner places a high value on natural, traditional cultivation methods which do not include the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilisers. The mushrooms are selectively harvested by hand between July and October, at their peak nutritional value.

Mushrooms are composed of the fruiting body, which typically appears above ground, and the mycelium underneath. The most important compounds in medicinal mushrooms are concentrated within the fruiting body, but due to mycelia being faster and easier to cultivate, products derived from the mycelium are common despite being of lesser value. Our mushroom powders and extracts are exclusively made from the entire fruiting body (including the stalk), preserving the valuable compounds in each mushroom.

The polysaccharides contained in medicinal mushrooms, particularly (1-3)-β-d-glucan and (1-6)-β-d-glucan, are some of their most prized ingredients. Our mushroom extracts retain these compounds through the traditional extraction which uses only water and food grade ethanol. The resulting concentrate is highly potent; a pure and wholesome extract with absolutely no toxic extraction residues or chemical release agents (such as acetone, n-hexane or methanol).

Shaggy Ink Cap

Coprinus comatus (shaggy ink cap, lawyer's wig, shaggy mane)

Coprinus comatus, a mushroom commonly known in the UK as shaggy ink cap, grows primarily in Asia and Europe and is highly valued for its excellent taste and medicinal properties. Storing the mushroom cap is not advised, as it quickly turns into black ink after ripening. However, when eaten fresh, its aroma is reminiscent of asparagus. The shaggy ink cap can be found in many European countries, where it grows mainly along roadsides and in meadows. Although it originated in Europe, it is a staple in traditional Chinese medicine. This mushroom is rich in vitamins, and about one third of its dry matter consists of proteins.

Cultivation & Processing

Our medicinal mushrooms are sourced from Gutian County in Fujian, China, a region 600-700m above sea level which is renowned for its cultivation of mushrooms. The cultivation of mushrooms is an age-old tradition in this region, as is reflected by their unparalleled quality. The pristine, fertile land and climate, protected by dense mountain forests, as well as the use of sophisticated substrates, provides an ideal environment for the mushrooms to thrive and develop exceptional levels of nutrients and a high concentration of phytochemicals. Our untreated mushrooms are cultivated without pesticides or synthetic fertilisers. They are grown to full maturity and hand-picked as their content of bioactives reaches its peak, between July and October.

In order to preserve the high concentration of beta-glucans contained in the mushrooms, their gently dried and milled fruiting bodies and stalks are prepared as an extract. The extraction is performed according to traditional methods; it only requires water and food grade ethanol, solvents that have been a part of Chinese as well as Western medicine for centuries. This type of extraction is among the gentlest and has long been used to create plant extracts. Our ultra-pure extract is thus free from any toxic residues of chemical solvents (such as acetone, N-hexane and methanol).
