Shiitake mushrooms

These flavor packed mushrooms are nutrient powerhouses.  Shiitake mushrooms have up to 10 times the flavor as button mushrooms and are rich in protein, iron, potassium, fiber, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins and more.

Ancient medicine

Shiitakes have been used in Chinese medicine for 6,000 years. Research has shown shiitakes build the immune system, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, fight infection and inhibit tumors.

Maximize flavor and nutrients

To maximize flavor and nutrients it is important to not overcook shiitake mushrooms. WholeFoods recommends sautéing them for a maximum of seven minutes.

Tips for cleaning and storing

Store shiitakes in a paper, not plastic bag in the fridge. They will be good for about one week.


When preparing use minimal if any water. You can wipe or brush mushrooms instead of rinsing.
