Coprinus comatus is widely available in Central Europe and is highly valued as an edible mushroom because of its delicious asparagus flavour. The mushroom with the small white pileus belongs to the Coprinus family. This type of mushroom has a relatively short lifespan. As the mushroom ages, it start to disintegrate on its own: the mushroom cap turns black, forms ink-like droplets and eventually disintegrates. This type of mushroom has a relatively short lifespan.

Specification extract (organic)
Specification powder (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.
