Maitake (Grifola frondosa) mushrooms grow in nature across Japan, China, and North America. However, our premium USDA Certified Organic Maitake mushrooms are carefully cultivated on a farm in the USDA by highly experienced growers. With more than a decade of experience, we offer the best Maitake mushroom products!* Maitake has been used to support overall immunity and well-being, and it has been widely researched.*
Maitake Bulk Powders
Our farm partners have been growing and extracting mushrooms for 40+ years. We believe you can’t find Maitake mushroom powders any better than these! We take steps to ensure purity and a high level of active constituents with optimal bioavailability. In raw mushrooms, the main active constituents, the 1,3-Beta Glucans, are tightly bound to the cell walls and have a low degree of bioavailability.
To target this issue and boost bioavailability of the constituents, all of our mushrooms undergo a steam activation process that breaks down the cell walls and frees the 1,3-Beta Glucans from the chitin. We cultivate both the mycelium and fruiting bodies of the Maitake mushrooms in our products. All our mushroom powders are organically grown right here in the United States!
Maitake Bulk Glycerites
Our Maitake bulk glycerites are alcohol-removed and triple-extracted. First, the mushrooms are fermented. This boosts the bioavailability of the polysaccharides, triterpenoids and alkaloids. Next we use a hot-water extraction to increase bioavailability of polysaccharides. Lastly, we do an extraction of 90 days in alcohol, because triterpenoids are only alcohol soluble. It takes us around 100 days to make a tincture! For our alcohol-removed glycerites, we start with a tincture then remove the alcohol and stabilize the product with USP Grade, Certified Organic vegetable glycerin.
Maitake Bulk Tinctures
Our Maitake mushroom bulk tinctures are triple-extracted. First, the mushrooms are fermented to make the polysaccharides, triterpenoids and alkaloids more bioavailable. The second step is a hot-water extraction to increase bioavailability of mushroom polysaccharides. The last step of the process is a 90-day extraction in alcohol, for triterpenoids. This process takes over three months from start to finish.
Choose Premade or Custom Products!
Making the best mushroom products takes time. For our bulk Maitake powders, tinctures and glycerites, we start with USA grown mushrooms that are USDA Certified Organic. Since 2011, we have established a reputation as a reliable wholesale supplier. From our triple extraction process for tinctures and glycerites to steam-processing all mushrooms after harvest, we never cut corners. That process boosts bioavailability of key compounds. It starts by fermenting the mushrooms to make polysaccharides, triterpenoids, and alkaloids more accessible. Then, we use hot water extraction, since some compounds are water-soluble. Finally, we do a 90-day alcohol extraction to target alcohol-soluble compounds.
Our high-quality premade formulas use USDA-certified organic mushrooms and botanical ingredients.* Our mushroom products are gluten-free, with no GMOs, pesticides, or herbicides (we have the third-party test results to prove it). We give resellers like yourself the freedom to create your products, too. Try out our custom formulator today.
