Eager to reap the benefits of mushroom powder but not sure where to start? We take a look at the three most common mushroom powders, how you can use them and why you should.
  • Organic Wild-harvested Chaga Mushroom Powder

     

    What is it?

    The Source Bulk Foods Chaga Mushroom Powder is grown naturally on birch wood in the dense forests of China. Mushroom farmers collect the superfood fungus before drying and grounding it into a fine brown powder. Chaga contains natural phytochemicals that act as antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and nutrients.

    Chaga has a subtle aroma and taste. It blends easily with hot or cold beverages and savoury recipes. Chaga is a wonderful mushroom to add to coffee as it doesn’t change the flavour and gives you an extra hit of antioxidants.

    How to use it?

    Add one teaspoon Organic Chaga Mushroom Powder to your coffee or chai, or you could try this delicious winter recipe:

     

    Chaga Miso Magic

    1-2 tbs miso soup

    1 shallot, thinly sliced, to garnish

    Fresh or dried herbs, to garnish

    Add all ingredients to a bowl or mug and mix well.

    Garnish with shallots and herbs, and enjoy warm!

  • Organic Wild-harvested Reishi Mushroom Powder

     

    What is it?

    This Organic Reishi Mushroom Powder is wild harvested from the forests of Zhejiang Province, China. Grown naturally on willow wood, this fungus’s fruiting body is collected by mushroom farmers then dried and ground into a fine brown powder.

    Traditionally, Reishi mushroom is known in China as the “immortality mushroom” and has been used to support and balance the nervous system. As Reishi mushroom contains adaptogenic properties, it has been said to help reduce stress and improve sleep. The only way to find out is by trying it for yourself!
