Auricularia is one of the oldest and most popular edible mushrooms in Asia and has been cultivated for over 1,500 years. What is known as the Jew's ear mushroom is very mild and is thus valued in Europe for its components more than its flavour. These mushrooms have a jelly-like consistency and an ear- or shell-shaped fruiting body.
Auricularia auricula judae is rich in minerals such as potassium, silicon, iron, calcium and magnesium. The mushroom also contains B vitamins, proteins, glycoproteins, polysaccharides and secondary components. Polysaccharides, which include beta-D-glucans, are a further component.
Also known as:
Jew’s ear, black Chinese fungus, wood fungus, Mu Err

Specification powder (organic)
Specification extract (organic)
Pure extract, standardised for polysaccharides. Polysaccharides are extracted from the chitin cover in the mushrooms using hot water. Compared with the powder, the extract has around 10 times the concentration of polysaccharides.
Our powders are gained from the gently dried fruiting body of the mushroom by grinding it finely. The grain size < 0.125 mm is a sign of quality.
All raw materials are tested for 250 parameters and aromatic hydrocarbons. The corresponding lab analyses and certificates are supplied to you with every batch.
