Superfoods - Shiitake

The Shiitake is a mushroom originally from East Asia.  It has been cultivated for over 1,000 years, but there are references about its consumption long before. These mushrooms in their place of origin grow on a tree called Shii. They are recognized by their brown hat with gray specks and flavour.

Currently, the Shiitake is one of the main sources of protein in the diet of people in several Eastern Asia countries, especially in Japan and China.

It stands out for its high fiber content, ?-D-Glucans and minerals such as Iron, Zinc and Magnesium, as well as vitamins of group B and D, which contributes to the absorption of calcium.
