Maitake Frondosa™ Mycopia’s Maitake Frondosa is wonderfully adaptable with a fabulous, forest aroma and a light, crunchy texture. In the wild, maitake can grow into huge heads over a foot in diameter. Gourmet Mushrooms’ small, delicate clusters present the mushroom’s best qualities at the peak of flavor. The other common name for this variety is Hen-of-the-Woods. Traditional in Asian cuisine, but its rich versatile flavor also finds complements with roasted meats and chicken, cheeses, dark leafy greens, and hearty grains. Certified Organic by QAI. Maitake is at the top of the list of mushrooms used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and it is one of the better studied mushrooms in modern clinical trials. Maitake Frondosa (and other mushrooms) are functional foods, good sources of micronutrients and active biological compounds that support a healthy immune system.
Gourmet Mushrooms, Inc. is committed to growing the finest quality specialty mushrooms using sustainable practices. We have been pioneer growers of fresh culinary mushrooms since 1977, when we were the first to commercially cultivate shiitake in the United States. Our fresh mushroom division, Mycopia Mushrooms, has earned its reputation as the premier grower of top quality, flavorful forest mushrooms that are "no longer wild, but far from tame." Our mushrooms are grown on oak-based substrate in reusable bottles. After the mushrooms are harvested, the spent substrate is recycled and turned into compost that is highly prized by local farmers and wineries. Our mushrooms have been certified organic and kosher since 2005. Since we were founded, we have also produced a line of mushroom mycelial biomass products for the nutraceutical industry.
