What does lion's mane taste like?
Lion's mane powder has an earthy flavor. When added to drinks and recipes, the flavor is masked. This is our preferred way to use powdered lion's mane mushrooms.
On the other hand, if you have whole raw lion's mane mushrooms, you have an entirely different ingredient with unique flavors and uses. Compared to extract, raw whole lion's mane is closer in flavor and texture to regular store-bought white button mushrooms. Whole cooked lions' mane has a chewy texture depending on how little or much you cook it and is mild in flavor, making it great for sauces since it absorbs flavors. On its own, raw lion's mane doesn't have much flavor at all.
