Our wild mushrooms grow under fir, oak or beech trees where the ideal microclimate of wet weather and sunshine collaborate to produce firm and clean mushrooms. We select the best quality mushrooms and immediately after harvesting, we sort, clean and dry them, utilizing the most ecofriendly technology: our sun!
Our solar drying technology significantly improves the quality of dried mushrooms in terms of color, texture, and taste, boosting the intensity of the flavours. The main advantage of solar drying is the natural enrichment of mushrooms with vitamin D, as ergosterol is converted to ergocalciferol under exposure to the natural UV light of the sun.
