Vacuum sealing fresh mushrooms, will it keep?
    #10207547 - 04/21/09 04:25 PM (5 years, 4 months ago)

Hi there,

I was recently wondering if it might be possible to store fresh mushrooms and keep them that way - by vacuum sealing. I just got a vacuum sealer from my buddy and I plan on keeping the shrooms as fresh as possible (since we all know fresh is better than dry). If I stored them in the fridge in a vacuum sealed package would they stay fresh, or do you think that's risking something (mushrooms going dry, contams, etc)?

I think the main thing about the rotting is that there is already liquid in the mushrooms when they're fresh. If you vacuum seal them, the liquid locks in... and therefore still rotts.

I could be wrong.

says who?:shrug:  its easier to get an accurate dose when dry if your talking active mushies. you never sure due to water content when you eat fresh.

mushrooms rot if stored wet, you can store almost indefinitely if you dry 100% and store with a desiccant pack in your storage container.

botulism is bad. dry them out before you seal them or they will be ruined and extremely poisonous.

Interesting. I just figured if there was no moisture content being lost due to no air getting at them that they might keep. I guess not. Well darn!

And I said fresh are better than dry because of the alkaloids, not because of dosing. Besides, most of us are experienced shroomers here; dosing shouldn't be an issue.

the alkaloids dont go anywhere when you dry them. so theres is no diff in that aspect.  but whatever floats your boat.

dry em, its better for storage.

Why have I always heard differently, then? I heard some of the alkaloids get destroyed in the drying process.

I thought the psilocyn in the fresh mushrooms was lost due to oxidation when dried?

And when you loose control, youll reap the harvest that youve sown
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And its too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down alone
Dragged down by the stone.

what causes them to spoil and rot is bacteria, not just moisture and exposure to air. Thats why drying is the only way to keep them for long periods of time. Without any moisture, moulds and bacteria cant grow.

Ive heard honey can keep them, not sure how long. Personaly i have kept fresh cubes for 5-6 days in the fridge in an open container. They will still dry out a little.


The active chemicals break down in the presence of oxygen. Get them dry quickly and out of the air, then they will keep for a long tie with minimal potency loss. Many people dry there mushrooms at upto 150F in a dehdyrator then will store them in an airtight container.


drying doesnt cause oxidisation, exposure to air does.
