The most widely known oriental mushroom, Shiitake Mushrooms (also known as Black Mushrooms) have a sublime smoky & rich flavor, mild when bought fresh, but concentrated after drying. They have a firm, meaty texture that becomes silky smooth when cooked. If that's not reason enough to add it to your diet, you should know that they've been consumed for ages in Asia because of their medicinal properties!

Health Benefits

  • Fights Obesity: Shiitake Mushrooms have hypolipidaemic (fat-reducing) effects, such as eritadenine & b-glucan, a soluble dietary fiber that can increase satiety, reduce food intake, delay nutrition absorption & reduce plasma lipid (fat) levels!
  • Improves Cardiovascular Health: Shiitake Mushrooms have sterol compounds that interfere with the production of cholesterol in the liver, as well as potent phytonutrients that help keep cells from sticking to blood vessel walls & forming plaque buildup, which in turn maintains healthy blood pressure & improves circulation!
