CCOF Organic Maitake Powder
Product of California
Also known as Hen of the Woods, Maitake mushrooms are popular for both their culinary and medicinal uses. A natural adaptogen, maitake is a powerful immune booster, and helps to regulate any of the body's systems that may have become unbalanced. It is beloved for its smoky, meat-like flavor.
Our powder is 100% Maitake mushroom and works well for medicinal or culinary uses. Maitake powder smells great and tastes even better. It can be used as an herbal supplement, made into tea, or sprinkled over foods. Its culinary uses are endless, but our favorite is to mix it with dried herbs and use it as a crust for chicken or pork cutlets.
Far West Fungi creates this line of mushroom powders by air-drying fresh mushrooms in our own commercial kitchen, and then grinding them into a fine powder. The result is a powerful mushroom seasoning, free from sodium, preservatives, or any other additive. It’s simple and pure: mushroom essence and nothing else.
Use mushroom powder as a base for soups and sauces, whisk with eggs in a scramble or omelette, use as a seasoning rub for meat, fish, and poultry. Mushroom powder can be mixed with flour when baking, or dusted over roasted vegetables. It is a healthy way to add umami and depth of flavor to any dish.
