Are you looking for the top shiitake mushroom spawn suppliers around? Well, you’ve come to the right place! We not only have shiitake spawn for you, we also have a variety of resources for helping you grow, on both commercial and hobbist levels.
There are a myriad of ways to engage in mushroom cultivation professionally. Some commercial mushroom farmers produce fresh, delicious mushrooms for retail or wholesale. They do this by fruiting and harvesting their own gourmet mushrooms in-house. However, this does not necessarily mean that they are producing their own inoculated spawn. There are many commercial farmers that buy sawdust blocks from spawn producers. They then grow mushrooms from the spawn and sell those fresh mushrooms to their customers. Some commercial mushroom farmers also produce their own spawn in addition to producing fresh mushrooms. For those that do not, we provide spawn options as one of the top commercial mushroom spawn suppliers in the market.
Clearly, based on this interest, there must be some type of shiitake mushroom benefits available to those who consume it, right? We think so, and today we are looking at some studies that support our thoughts on this.
If you peruse the internet for information on grain spawn, as we do frequently, you will likely see that rye is considered to be the gold standard in growing mushrooms on grain. However,there are some that believe millet is the best grain for mushroom spawn. The reason: Smaller grains like millet are preferred to larger grains like rye or wheat as they allow for more inoculation points from the same amount of inoculum. One pound of rye spawn may have about 200 particles for the mycelium to leap off from while millet will have closer to 500. By using millet, a smaller grain, the mycelium will spread more evenly and abundantly through the substrate. Similarly, sawdust can be better than larger grains because of the small particle size.
Lion’s mane spores are used to develop the fruited body, eventually. A germinated spore will form hyphal thread. These hyphal threads ultimately lead to the development and growth of the mycelium. The mycelium can be thought of as the mushroom’s root system. The fruited lion’s mane will develop through the mycelium.
Have you experienced the lion’s mane mushroom? You may have heard of this furry mushroom friend as a choice edible with healthful benefits that support the brain and nervous system. Its popularity has grown particularly in the supplement market, where many companies are touting the medicinal qualities of this mushroom. However, we wanted to look deeper into studies to go beyond the hype that often exists in sales channels.
