Shiitake (Lentinula edodes, Lentinula edodes) has its homeland in Asia, where it’s also used in gastronomy. It’s said that its taste is 4−10x more concentrated than tastes of other mushrooms, so Shiitake is suitable for flavouring meat, soups, sauces or salads. Shiitake is a wood-decaying mushroom from the Basidiomycota family growing on fallen trees or stumps.
In Japan, they recognise two types of Shiitake, the more valuable donko with its closed cap and koshin, which has an open cap. Today, Shiitake is cultivated commercially in controlled mushroom farms, as the demand for it is huge. First mentions of Shiitake, date back to 2,000 ago, appeared Chinese medicine works.
It’s said about Shiitake that it’s the “queen of mushrooms” or “life elixir”, thanks to its composition. Shiitake is very rich in the necessary essential amino acids, minerals and B vitamins and also provitamin D2. Other substances found in Shiitake include for example, purine alkaloid erythadenine, polysaccharides ‒ beta gluacsn, which also include lentinans, etc.
