Maitake is commonly referred to as 'Hen of the Woods' because the petals resemble plumage. This delicious morsel is very high in protein (27%), contains 15 amino acids and is being studied for its positive effect on the immune system. A favorite on our farm, the Maitake takes on a nutty flavor when sauteed. Delicious paired with chicken, rice and pasta, we use it in everything.

I've ordered dried maitake from multiple sources over the years, but FungusAmongUs has the best product, by far - always clean - no debris - no insects.

Very uniform and well dried. They smell wonderful - spicy.
