Nordic Chaga comes from the forests, far from busy towns or roads. Our chaga is only harvested in areas where plant protection products and pesticides are prohibited by law. In Nordic forests are generally mixed so it’s important to hunt out the older birch trees. It takes time. Often chaga is found on trees in swampy areas.We want decent size chaga growth on a tree (not too small, best to leave them to grow and mark their position with GPS to return next year). Next step is to carefully cut off the chaga with a small axe (this might involved climbing the tree). It’s important to leave behind 10-25% to allow continued growth. It’s important to sustainably harvest it carefully so as not to damage the birch tree host. It’s important to recognise that chaga is a precious resource and “taking all you can” is unsustainable.

Once the chaga hunting and harvesting is finished for the day it’s time to clean the chaga well. It’s important to remove any detritus or insects. The Nordic Chaga is then air dried in a clean environment or placed in a very low heat oven. Next up is a humidity test of the chaga to ensure its 14% or less. This is important to prevent mold or internal rot. Unfortunattely some of the other brands/products are not following this process.Once the chaga is dry it is stored it in airtight, sealed containers in a cool place. Each batch is individually checked to ensure it’s good.

Quality is everything and we only offer the highest quality Chaga products available.
Quality really matters. Rumours exist that some big suppliers, especially in Asia, mess with their chaga. It has been claimed that chaga has been soaked in ponds to add weight or that ground chaga/chaga powder has been mixed with dirt, starch or other fillers to increase the weight. We recommend you only use pure, wild chaga, that comes with a 100% guarantee as the Nordic Chaga

Chaga has been part of Nordic folk medicine for thousands of years as it has been in Asia, North America, Siberia and parts of Eastern Europe. It’s only recently that western countries have learned about chaga, and we will be hearing more and more as time progresses. People want immunity boosts from natural sources and that is one of chaga’s reported strengths.
