    Flavor and Texture: Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) flavor and texture are strikingly similar to crab or lobster meat. You’ll experience a delicate sweetness balanced with a dense, meaty mouthfeel that is more akin to crab, or even chicken, than any other mushroom we’ve tasted. The flavor is very mild and these mushrooms easily absorb notes from seasonings, cooking oils, and other ingredients making them a great addition to pasta, soups, and stir-fries. Lion’s Mane mushrooms can be added to virtually any recipe, alongside or as a fantastic substitute for meat—but with its incredible natural flavor, our favorite way to cook it is sliced up and pan-fried in a little olive oil.

    Benefits: These Lion’s Mane mushroom clusters offer protein, fiber, and potassium, as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds. They also contain hericenones and erinacines, found to stimulate brain cell growth and Lion’s Mane has been nicknamed the “Smart Mushroom” for its role in supporting healthy cognitive functions like memory, perception, and attention.

    Due to the nature of our products, processing time frames can vary. Please feel free to contact our Customer Service Department at 864-978-5466 if you have any questions prior to ordering.

    Lion’s Mane is a delicate mushroom that easily absorbs water and too much can impact the flavor and texture negatively. We recommend storing your Lion’s Mane mushroom in a low traffic spot in the fridge, preferably in the packaging they come in, paper wrapping, or a paper bag. They can be left in the main compartment of the refrigerator to allow for better airflow, avoid the crisper drawer. Our fresh Lion’s Mane mushrooms can be stored for roughly 5-7 days under these recommendations.
