Chaga is Not a Mushroom

Polypore fungi like Inonotus Obliquus are unlike fleshy mushrooms and can be found all year long.

Polypore fungi can be easily distinguished from the other fungi by their hard exterior and "non-mushroom" shape. They typically grow on wood acting as forest decomposers. Helping to recycle nutrients and minerals from dead or dying trees. A process that can often take several hundred years from a single downed tree. 

Wood decaying fungal polypores use two different methods to rot or breakdown their host.  

 

Wood is composed mostly of cellulose (white) and lignin (brown). Cellulose makes up the primary wall of all plant cells. Many plants have a secondary wall of lignin inside the primary one, especially in wood.

Brown rot fungi degrade the white cellulose leaving the brown lignin behind. White rot fungi degrade the lignin and leave the white cellulose behind. Brown rot fungi degrade the primary walls and leaving the secondary lignin behind. Thus brown rotted wood crumbles to dust since there is no primary wall structure left behind.  

It's ability to degrade wood and lignin makes the nutritional value of the host digestible to insects, animals and even humans.

The enzymes of white rot fungi can also degrade toxic waste. Including toxins with the same chemical configuration, such as PCB's and PCP's. Birch fungus It is generally known as non-toxic fungi because of this fact.
