There is strong evidence that higher grades of shiitake are more effective for healing purposes. Scientists now believe an important medicinal substance resides in the spores of shiitake which is the medicinal powder that falls from the under surface of the cap. The most common grades of shiitake are thinner and have open-caps. The highest grade of shiitake are donko, which are thicker and have closed-caps. Sun-dried Donko are the most medicinal variety of donko.
