Complete dehydration to transfer to power
    #2389627 - 02/29/04 11:31 PM (14 years, 22 days ago)

I am currently incubating a batch that will produce about 800 wet grams of mushrooms. In the past, I have dealt with "dried" mushrooms, but they really haven't been dried. At best, they were leathery.

I am thinking about using sodium silicate or a dessicant dehumidifier to dehydrate my mushrooms to the point that I can crush them into a fine powder. Do any of you know if this is possible; that is, will sodium silicate or a single dessicant dehumifier extract enough water so that I can make a powder of the msuhrooms, or will it just make them leathery? What works the best?

I want a powder so that I can easily store it in a ziploc bag or transfer into tea or gelcaps. Thanks.

you need to fan dry them for 24 hours followed by 24 hours in a dessicant chamber.
that will leave you with cracker dry shrooms that you can grind to a powder.
