Pleurotus ostreatus enjoys great popularity and prominence around the world as an edible mushroom. After all, the mushroom known as the oyster mushroom grows virtually throughout the world. Its demand is also growing in its role as a dietary supplement. The fruiting bodies of the oyster mushroom grow in dense clusters, with a shell-shaped cap, mostly brown or grey, sitting on the light-coloured stem.
Pleurotus ostreatus contains amino acids as well as B vitamins, vitamins C and D, and folic acid. The beta-glucan pleuran is also one of its components.

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.
