About Dried Shiitake Mushrooms

Not only are shiitake mushrooms valued for their primordial origin, but also for their various health-boosting properties that have been discovered over centuries of ancient medicine. Shiitake mushrooms’ health benefits include

Good for bones.
Antiviral properties.
Boosting immune system.
Lowering cholesterol levels.
Lowering risk on certain cancers.
Shiitake mushrooms are said to have more than 10 times the flavor of white button mushrooms. The taste can intensify when they’re dried and reconstituted by soaking in water. Sautéing them lightly is the best way to maintain their taste and nutritional profile.

Storage and shelf life

Dried whole mushrooms will last 10-12 months when store in a cool dried place. They will last longer if frozen. We recommend using a glass container with a tight seal.

Shipping and delivery

The product is available for delivery and pick up from our store in de Pijp.

How to use

Dried mushrooms can be used in reconstituted by soaking in water, broth, or wine for at least thirty minutes; after which, they are good in almost any savory dish. Shitake mushrooms are great in a stir fry or rice dishes. If you’re replacing dried shitake mushrooms for fresh, note that 10g of dried equals approximately 80 grams fresh.

Other interesting information

The word “shiitake” is derived from the Japanese words “shii,” the oak-like tree where these mushrooms first grew, and “také,” which simply means mushroom; hence, it literally means “mushrooms of the shii tree.”

China yields around 80 percent of the world market in production, a distinction that Japan initially held.

Lentinan, a potent antifungal protein in shiitake mushrooms, may lower your risk of cancer. A study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine showed that oral administration of lentinan helped slow the development of small tumors.

Tasty & fresh
Tuintje van Adam’s shiitake mushrooms come in small batches directly from the farm in Amsterdam. Each batch is sampled to ensure texture, taste and smell are ideal for every use.

Local
Tuintje van Adam grows all of their products here in Amsterdam – it doesn’t get more local than that.

Our impact
This product is very low impact. All shiitake mushroom powder is locally sourced and delivered by the farmer to our store, resulting in a low carbon footprint. You can buy as much as you want and take it home in reusable containers, nearly eliminating waste.

Organic
Tuintje van Adam produces this high-quality product without chemicals, pesticides, or genetically modified spores in growing, storage, processing or shipping. Detailed records are kept for all batches and strict hygienic measures are maintained. We have visited their farm and can attest to this. Yet, like many small farms, organic certification is not financially feasible

Producer's impact
You can rest assured that Tuintje van Adam is a sustainable and ethical producer.
