Crushing mushrooms..?
    #3409351 - 11/25/04 09:08 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Is there a noticeable reduction in potency of mushrooms when they have chopped up using a blender? :frown: If so, how much?

What would be the best way to go about chopping up mushrooms?

Thanks.  :smile:

I wouldn't think it affects potency because this is part of most extraction methods. I could be wrong about that though.

assuming you are talking about fresh ones, you'll want to consume them pretty soon after blending. If you are powdering dry ones, I'd use a coffee grinder and you won't notice a big change in potency, if any, and you can keep them stored in gel caps or whatever for months.

Shouldn't be much change in potency, and if there is...it would be in the more intense direction, because there would be a larger surface area of shrooms exposed.

As far as I can see, crushing freshies in a blender doesn't affect the potency. In fact, blended shrooms hit you much faster than chewing freshies. A bit hectic on the tummy though (IMO).....

Ok, well crush some fresh ones up and let them sit a couple of days and see if they are still potent. They won't have any magic in them. If you use them within a couple hours you're ok. Keeping them more than a day after beating them up like that and they won't be any good.

But what do I know.

Once they are dry and blened, they would be more prone to heat or oxidation?
