Mitoku Macrobiotic Premium Sun-Dried Donko Shiitake

Mitoku Macrobiotic Premium Sun-Dried Donko Shiitake

A favorite ingredient in macrobiotic dishes and more nutritious than common button mushrooms, shiitake contain all eight amino acids in a ratio similar to the ideal protein for human nutrition. They are rich in leucine and lysine, which is deficient in many grains, and provide B vitamins. Scientific studies show that shiitake can reduce serum cholesterol and have anti-viral and anti-tumor properties. A delicacy in Japan, shiitake mushrooms are grown on hardwood logs in Japanese forests, and hand-harvested and sun-dried. Prized for their woodsy, almost smoked flavor, they add gourmet flavor to most foods they are combined with. Donko shiitake are the most valued for their superb flavor and healing qualities. The Donko has a thick, small, tightly curled cap, concentrating their flavor and energy. Enjoy shiitake in soups, stews, noodle broths, vegetable and grain dishes, sauces, gravies, casseroles and teas.
