Shiitake mushrooms. View of harvested shiitake mushrooms (Lentinula edodes). Shiitake mushrooms (also known as black forest mushrooms) have been cultivated in the far east for over 650 years. They are an extremely rich source of amino acids as well as iron, fibre, vitamins and minerals. In ancient China the health benefits of shiitake mushrooms were well known. During the Ming dynasty (1368-1644) it was decreed that only the emperor and his family could eat them. The mushrooms were consequently known as "emperor food". Today the health benefits and the distinctive 'woody' taste make the shiitake one the most popular edible mushrooms in the world.
