The composition

Maitake – Grifola frondosa

The maitake mushroom is native to northeastern Japan, but also grows and is cultivated in the United States and Europe. It grows in clusters at the base of oak trees and can reach a base diameter of 50 cm. A truss can weigh up to 45 kg. Maitake has a wavy, floral appearance reminiscent of dancing butterflies, hence one of its popular names "dancing mushroom".

In China and Japan, maitake mushrooms have been consumed for 3,000 years, valued for their legendary properties. The scientific name of maitake, Grifola frondosa, is derived from an Italian mushroom name referring to a mythological beast, half lion and half eagle. Years ago, the maitake in Japan had monetary value and was worth its weight in silver. In the late 1980s, Japanese scientists determined that maitake was more potent than shiitake, suehirotake and kawaratake mushrooms, all of which are used in traditional Asian herbalism to boost the immune system.
