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.
