About the product
Originally cultivated in East Asia, shiitake mushrooms are now estimated to make up a quarter of worldwide mushroom production. They have been used medicinally and as a food in Japan for centuries, and are now popular around the world.
Prepared and packaged in Japan, these Chinese Sugar-Simmered Shiitake Mushrooms are richer in Vitamin D than their dried counterparts. They also provide a notably high amount of iron per calorie. This richness in iron combined with a satisfying texture is part of the reason that shiitake mushrooms are so beloved by vegetarians too.
With the striking umami that shiitake mushrooms are known for, this might be that final missing ingredient you’ve been searching for.
