History of maitake
Maitake is a type of fungus. It has been chef’s favourite for its delicious taste and unique texture. Its remedial value is much greater than its food value.
Wild maitake is like other fungi, it can only grow under specific temperature and humidity. It is abundant in forests in south Asia, Europe and southeast America. It is actually rare in Japan, but because Japanese treasure maitake a lot, people mistake it as the place of origin of maitake.
Maitake’s scientific name is Grifola frondosa, which originates from “griffin” in Greek. Griffin is a creature with the head and wings of an eagle and a body like a lion in Greek mythology. “frondosa” means the shape of a leaf. “Mai” means “dance” in Japanese, and there are two versions of story for how maitake was named in Japan. One of which is because it looks like a dancing girl or butterfly, and the other is that “maitake hunters” would dance to celebrate when they found the precious fungus.
In ancient Japan, maitake cost as much as silver of the same weight. “Maitake hunters” would not reveal to anyone where they find wild maitake. They would only put that in their wills to pass it on to their descendants.
Botanic capsules which are suitable for vegetarians
As soon as extraction of maitake extract is done, the extract is injected into botanic capsules and then sterilized. This can keep its freshness and activeness.
Bio-Maitake Capsule is easy to carry around. For those whom capsules are not suitable for, e.g. children, elderlies or patients, they can open up the capsules and mix the maitake extract into water, soup or congee.
