With an extremely wide range of flavours, Hericium erinaceus is particularly popular in Asia as an edible mushroom and delicacy, as its taste is reminiscent of seafood with a hint of citrus. Its look is also unmistakable: the impressive fruiting body is covered with white to cream-coloured soft spines. This is why it is also referred to as "Lion's mane".
The lion’s mane mushroom contains eight amino acids as well as zinc, iron, selenium and organic germanium. In addition to a high potassium content, it is also low in sodium. This medicinal mushroom is highly valued due to its many polysaccharides and polypeptides.
Also known as:
Bearded hedgehog mushroom, lion’s mane, old man’s beard, monkey head mushroom

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.
