Phellinus Mushroom History

Phellinus is a polypore that grows wild on various tree species. Some claim that the true Phellinus grows primarily on Mulberry but there seems to be a number of closely aligned variant species, P.baumii the most common. Cultivation has been ongoing for about twenty years. There has been a significant amount of research in Korea, most of it focused on the immunological activities of this mushroom.

Proudly Made in China

In 1996, CEO and Founder of Nammex, Jeff Chilton organized organic mushroom production in China. That initiative paid off and today all Nammex mushrooms are grown or wildcrafted deep in the mountains of China by our Certified Organic production partners.
