Additional Information: Fungalicious is a small exotic oyster mushroom farm that grows several varieties of oyster mushrooms offering only the highest quality. We are not a certified organic farm but everything is naturally grown. The only thing that ever comes into contact with our mushrooms is purified water. Even when we harvest we use food service gloves and place them in paper bags or cardboard boxes depending on the amount and they are ready to use, no washing is necessary. These mushrooms have a delicious mushroom flavor with a great texture. The umami flavor that they add to every dish is incredible! We also sustainably farm using agriculture waste to create substrate material for growing and then compost the spent waste for soil amendment. Oyster mushrooms have been used in the Czech Republic as the main ingredient in a dietary supplement used to treat high cholesterol (Hobbs, 1995). Studies in animals have shown that a diet of Oyster mushrooms reduced the development of plaque in major arteries (Bobek et al., 1995). They also have high protein content, several B vitamins, and all the essential amino acids (Marley, 2009). Its medicinal benefits include promoting anti-tumor activity and lowering high cholesterol. Oyster mushroom fruiting bodies and distillations have been shown to reduce tumor size in several studies on mice, rats, and hamsters (Hobbs, 1995)
