Flammulina velutipes (enoki)
Enoki thrives best in the cool regions of the northern hemisphere - even in winter. It is easy to cultivate, which is one of many reasons it is becoming more important as a medical mushroom. It contains numerous nutrients: in addition to polysaccharides, various vitamins, linolenic acid and triterpene enokipodins were identified. It is an excellent supplement for a balanced diet both as an edible mushroom and as an extract in capsules.
A special honour was bestowed on Enoki in the context of space exploration. A representative of this genus took part in the 1993 Spacelab mission D-2 in order to study the impact of gravity on the growth of mushrooms.

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.
- Extract organically grown – standardised to 30% polysaccharides
- Extract conventionally grown – standardised to 30% polysaccharides
- Mushroom powder conventionally grown
