Raw Materials

Mushrooms are higher fungi. What we call a mushroom is the reproductive body of macrofungi that are visible to the naked eye. The remaining organism, the mycelium, grows underground (within the substrate) decomposing dead organic matter.

The quality of the raw materials that go into the substrates plays a very important role, as the mycelium grows throughout the substrate thus absorbing the nutrients it needs from its environment.

We choose the best organic raw materials (!) for our King Oyster mushroom substrates, which is reflected in the excellent quality and taste of our final product.

  • 80% Wood (in the form of woodchips) or shavings (mainly beech, oak, poplar)
  • 20% Soy flour, bran and other nutrients, which contain a high concentration of proteins and carbohydrates.
