My Berry Organics offers a custom formulated line of chaga skin care products, teas and immune support supplements with ingredients sourced from nature. Our two signature ingredients are the astoundingly nutrient-rich Maine chaga mushroom and the prized wild blueberry.
This hot-water extracted powder was selected from an experienced reputable mushroom company to ensure this product has been nutrient-tested for beta glucans and tested for heavy metals and microbes. Polysaccharide testing is not done, as it is an undesirable test for determining quality. Unfortunately, it is used extensively as a deceptive means to attain a high polysaccharide count. This high count is due to the chaga being cultivated/grown on grain or rice and not wild-harvested on live birch trees in the forests. Grain and rice is a starch and is also a filler when added to what little amount of actual mushroom is being used, thus artificially raising the polysaccharide count. Cultivated chaga also does not grow the important black crust (containing betulin and melanin) when not grown on the birch bark of live birch trees. When My Berry Organics researched this practice and conducted our own independent U.S.testing, we were astounded at the number of companies making these fraudulent claims.(as of yet, no extract powder is sourced directly in the U.S.) Shockingly, 100% of the samples we tested proved to be cultivated chaga even with official looking documents claiming to be wild-harvested. Thankfully, we were able to find a quality professional company in which we were able to give our seal of approval. *Do not confuse an extracted powder with raw unextracted powder. This extracted powder is highly dense and a little makes for many servings.
