Find out more about the properties of mushrooms

Mushrooms have been a source of food for humans since time immemorial. Even in the Stone Age, people knew about the value of mushrooms as food. And even then they recognised that mushrooms could be preserved by drying them. As mushrooms also contain plenty of protein, among other things, the Aborigines, the indigenous people of Australia, referred to them very early on as the "black man's bread". It is also known that mushrooms have been highly valued in China and Japan for thousands of years and some of them have even been worshipped. Mushrooms were also used for ritual purposes in ancient times.  

At the time of the migration of peoples (500 to 800 AD), knowledge of mushrooms was largely lost. It is therefore not surprising that our current historical knowledge of fungi had to be painstakingly reconstructed by researchers. For example, the works on fungi by Abbess Hildegard von Bingen (1098 to 1179), which were unique for the Middle Ages, are regarded as groundbreaking. Researchers also rely mainly on the traditions from regions with a shamanic culture.

The largest living creature in the world

Are mushrooms plants or animals?

Well, that is as difficult to answer as the question of which came first, "the chicken or the egg". Mushrooms do not contain "chlorophyll". This is the substance that colours plants green and helps them to produce sugar and oxygen from sunlight, water and carbon dioxide. According to this, fungi are not able to photosynthesise and therefore cannot be classified in the genus of "plants". 

So they belong to the animals? Fungi need organic nutrients produced by other living things for their metabolism and are thus closer to the animal kingdom. However, some genetic characteristics do not match. Mushrooms are therefore special in every respect and cannot be concretely assigned to any species. For us, the cultivation of medicinal mushrooms is a new adventure every day and an exciting journey into a still largely unknown world. We are happy to continue taking them with us.

Mushrooms, nature's cleaning team

Mushrooms have a cleansing effect on your environment

Mushrooms are still a mystery to us. However, it is known that they have a cleansing effect on their environment. The actual fungus, the mycelium, spreads underground and permeates the soil with its threads. It is thus able to absorb nutrients and pollutants and break them down on a molecular level.

In this way, fungi fulfil an important task in nature and create nutrient-rich soil. Because of these properties, we produce under the strictest conditions only on completely pollutant-free soil and with filtered air. We provide you with the purest vital mushrooms without pesticides and pesticides to detoxify your body in the best possible way.
