Cordyceps Sinensis VS Militaris
We gets lots of questions about the difference between the two types of Cordyceps, in a nutshell Sinensis is the traditional method of growing Cordyceps on larvae. However the source of our cordyceps now use a vegan method to produce the sinensis variety without the use of larvae. A rich broth of peanuts, yeast and nutrients is used and the resulting nutritional profile has shown to be every bit as broad as the traditional method. Militaris is grown on oats/grain and is considered to be inferior in quality. We proudly stock the super-quality Sinensis Cordyceps.
Not recommended for people with peanut allergies
Peanuts are used in the production of cordyceps, although our source claim that there are no traces of peanut in the end product. To be on the safe side we would advise against taking cordyceps if you have a peanut allergy.
