FAQs about shiitake mushrooms
Yes, like most vegetables, shiitake mushrooms grow in the earth on decaying wood. You'll want to wash off the dirt and debris using a gentle scrub to maintain the delicate shape of the mushroom. You don't need to use soap, and if you prefer a brush, select one with soft bristles.
Yes, shiitake mushrooms have many health benefits. They have one of the highest amounts of copper, promoting healthy bones, blood vessels, and your immune system. A half-cup of shiitake mushrooms has 72% of your recommended daily amount of copper. Shiitakes are also a good source of selenium and contain fair amounts of eritadenine, which has been shown to reduce cholesterol in the blood. The beta-glucans and lentinans in shiitake mushrooms help fight inflammation and boost white blood cell production to boost your immune system.
Yes, shiitake mushrooms can be eaten raw. You should wash them first, but most people enjoy their earthy flavor and meaty texture. The stems are edible, too, but are stringy and tough to chew, even after cooking. The caps are the best part and can be served raw or cooked.
