Pawpaw Production and Processing
Ganoderma mushroom (also known as Reishi) was known as food for the gods by the ancient Egyptian civilization. In ancient Chinese culture, it has been know to both prevent and treat several conditions including boosting immunity, anti fungal & anti cancer properties, anti-aging, prevents cardiac conditions, diabetes, treats hypertension and lowers cholesterol. The mushroom is an adaptogen, meaning it optimizes the body’s physiological state, which is why it has anti-fatigue effect. We have ganoderma (reishi) in all our edible products to serve as both preventive and medicinal purposes without affecting the taste. A combination of our Deina ganoderma blended black tea with Deina papaya jam is a power breakfast that will leave a pleasant taste in your mouth and keep you energized and protected all day.
