Edible wild mushrooms
Natural products that are especially beneficial
Edible wild mushrooms are among the oldest foods on the planet. They are a purely natural product and hence entirely free of auxiliaries and additives.
The Estyria range comprises morels, chanterelles, porcini, horn of plenty, a mushroom mix and mushroom granules. Frozen mushrooms are sold in 125 g skin packs, while dried mushrooms come in packs of 20 g or 150 g. We sell both conventionally and organically grown mushrooms.
Convenience products are currently very popular in the mushroom segment. The Wertvoll vitality brand includes porcini risotto and porcini polenta in its range of organic ready meals.

The untreated oil is not filtered; the particles that make it cloudy settle naturally when the oil is left to rest.Read more
