Organic and wild?
That’s right, this version is wild harvested from forests in remote areas in China and then lab tested to ensure it meets all the strict requirements for organic foods in the UK. It must pass testing for pesticides, artificial fertilisers, heavy metals, e.coli, yeast, mould, salmonella and more.
But from China?
Yes! Turkey tail is native to China so this is completely normal and to be expected. Also as this powder is wild harvested it cannot be mass produced. Some people are concerned about products from China containing high levels of heavy metals. However due to the organic status of this powder, the heavy metal levels by law have to be next to non-existent. For some context, something like a regular non-organic UK grown tomato from your local supermarket will contain exponentially more heavy metals.
