Mushrooms and Mushroom Based Ingredients

Fungi Are well known for their taste enhancing properties and as providers of Umami flavours.
Our dehydrated mushrooms are grown mainly in Europe, with some from China, which are cleaned and further processed in Germany.

We are able to supply all the popular types of mushroom, including Champignons, Boletus Edulis (Porcini) Shiitake and Morels.


Dehydrated Mushrooms

We have been supplying our standard range of dehydrated mushrooms for many years. We can supply most of the popular types of mushrooms in the form of slices, cubes, granules and powder.

Mushrooms in all their forms can of course be used in any plant-based recipe to provide taste and flavour.

We also now have a source of Adaptogenic mushrooms. These are mushrooms that may help reduce the effects of stress on your body. Some people use them as herbal health products. In general, an adaptogen is a substance that works to reduce the negative effects of stress on the body.

The main types that we can supply are Hericium erinaceus, commonly known as Lion’s Mane, which is thought to offer adaptogenic effects and Reishi, which helps support the function of the adrenal glands.
