Aside from being a prized staple in Asan cuisine and traditional medicine, maitake mushroom is a functional, nutrient-dense food. Maitake mushroom powder is a convenient way to enjoy the rich flavor and immune-supporting polysaccharides of “the king of mushrooms” without having to pull out a frying pan to make stir-fry. Simply shake some into simmering soups, omelets, pasta dishes, roasted vegetables, smoothies, salads, stir-fries. And other foods. The powder may also be encapsulated as a dietary supplement. s.
