Biochaga - freeze-dried extracts.

Our company Baikal Herbs Ltd has been engaged in the manufacturing of a wide range of plant-based extracts for more than 22 years. All available extracts have been produced exclusively from wild-grown raw materials: mushrooms, berries, herbs, and plants collected from the Russian Siberian taiga forest.

The assortment of our dried extracts includes rosehip berry extract, reishi mushroom extract, Agaricus mushroom extract, Siberian ginseng extract, Rhodiola Rosea root extract, Leusea root extract, and others. They contain no additives,  no GMO, no ingredients originating from China.


All the extracts presented on this website are freeze-dried water-soluble powders. Among all others, the Freeze-dried Chaga mushroom extract appears to become one of the most popular products today. It has been particularly praised in South Korea and Japan but currently is also gaining popularity among health-minded people in the EU and USA. And it is no wonder because the quality of our Chaga extract has proved to be superior.

What is biochaga?

Biochaga is a Chaga product processed to the level when it can be digested by the human body releasing all of its health-beneficial substances. Even though it has been processed into the powder, our Chaga extract retains live bacteria and possesses a huge amount of melanin and antioxidants.

Few people are aware that Chaga tea offered by the majority of merchants cannot be called biochaga. It is all about the ability of the human body to utilize and digest health-supporting Chaga mushroom substances. If eaten raw, the Chaga mushroom cannot be absorbed by the body because it lacks one particular enzyme called chitinase. This enzyme is essential for our body to break open the chitin cells from which all mushrooms are made, including Chaga mushroom. So the trick is to convert the indigestible form of Chaga into a digestible one. It can only be achieved by applying the process called extraction, which employs either hot water or alcohol as solvents. Both methods can be used in order to break through the walls of the chitin molecule, thus providing access to the bio digestible substances of Chaga. However, the diversity of these substances and their quantity differ depending on which solvent agent had been used: water or alcohol.

Chaga extract in 100g bagsMost of the plant-based extracts available in stores and specialized shops today do not correlate with the definition "bio". In most cases, these extracts are available in tablets and capsules and had usually been manufactured from the thermally processed, lab-cultivated cheap raw materials. Also, according to our estimation, about 80% of all known to us food supplements contain fillers and colorants. In respect of their health-supporting value, such products are "almost dead."

The real Chaga extract can be defined as "Bio" when it meets the following conditions:

1. Raw materials must be "live" and of high quality. By saying "live" we mean that the plants and herbs are supposed to be found and collected only in wild nature and not grown on farms or in laboratories. The wild-grown raw materials are rich in microelements, macronutrients, and vitamins. Only such herbs can really possess the biologically active substances attributed to these particular species.

For example, when Chaga mushroom is artificially cultivated, then it doesn't contain the essential Сhaga substance for which it has been valued. The substance is called the Chromogenic complex that consists of Chaga acids and Chaga melanin.

Moreover, there is a difference in the chemical composition of Chaga mushrooms depending on their place of geographical origination. Chaga mushroom collected from the European part of Russia doesn't possess the same high level of health-supporting substances as Chaga collected in Siberian forests.

2. The manufacturing of sublimated (freeze-dried)  Chaga extract is a rather complicated technological process that requires a profound knowledge of biology, advanced equipment, and time-proved experience of working with Chaga.

3. The "know-how". Our experts have a secret formula that allows us to create this amazing freeze-dried Chaga extract. As of today, we have no rivals regarding quality.  It cannot be replicated by other manufacturers without the knowledge of "know-how".

Taking into account the above-mentioned reasons, it should become obvious that the real "bio" products cannot be cheap.

Our Chaga extract has been called "biochaga" also because it has not been exposed to high-temperature thermal processing. As a result, the Chaga DNA in such an extract remains undamaged.

The genuine Freeze-Dried Chaga extract should instantly solve in water and be easily digested by the human body. As a result, you will obtain a powerful inflow of antioxidants which immediately start removing the free radicals thereby essentially improving your health.

As you may know, the free radicals are the adverse electrons that cause damage to healthy cells resulting in premature aging and diseases, including cancer and diabetes.

Apart from Chaga extract we also manufacture some other dry powdered extracts, such as Reishi mushroom extract, Siberian ginseng extract, Rosehip extract, Rhodiola root extract, Agaricus, and others.

Our Freeze-dried Chaga extract has been analyzed and tested for its ability to fight free radicals by the Brunswick Laboratory (USA). The results were quite impressive. This test report, called ORAC certificate can be found here.

Our Chaga extract contains more than 53% chromogenic complex content! No other known mushrooms have these particular Chaga acids. And this fact makes the wild-crafted Chaga mushroom unique. In appearance, the real freeze-dried Chaga extract has one distinguishing feature: the glistening crystals visible in the picture. When Chaga extract is dried by heat, it will not acquire such a glistening particle.
