(Grifola frondosa) is a medicinal polypore considered a choice edible composed of soft, overlapping, fan-shaped fronds. Most of Maitake's health benefits seem to stem from their beta-glucan, a polysaccharide compound thought to support the immune system by activating effector cells like macrophages, T cells, and NK cells. The polysaccharide is also thought to support healthy blood sugar levels and contains minerals like potassium, calcium, magnesium, and B vitamins. We do not import our Maitake.
