种虫草用上了新虫子 (2012-02-13)
Cordyceps using insects

冬虫夏草是名贵的中草药,随着不断地采挖,野生的已经越来越少了,人工种植一直停留在虫草菇上,也就是利用大米、小麦、蚕蛹等做营养基来培养虫草。之所以很难种出和野生一样的冬虫夏草,除了温湿度等环境很难掌控外,最大的难度就是找适合寄生的虫源。蝙蝠蛾的幼虫是冬虫夏草的寄主,而这种昆虫只能生长在高寒高海拔地区,所以很难人工繁殖,为了找到蝙蝠娥的替代品,专家们开始了漫长的试验过程,现在他们成功地利用蛹虫做寄主,培植出了蛹虫草,它的各种指标都和野生的冬虫夏草不相上下,本片将详细介绍如何人工栽植蛹虫草。

Cordyceps is a precious Chinese herbal medicine, with the constant dredging, the wild have fewer and fewer planted remained at the cordyceps mushroom, that is, rice, wheat, pupa, and so do the nutritional foundation to cultivate Cordyceps. The reason why it is difficult and wild Cordyceps sinensis, in addition to temperature and humidity environment are difficult to control, the biggest difficulty is to find suitable parasitic insect source. Bat moth larvae are the host of Cordyceps sinensis, this insect can only grow in alpine high altitude, it is difficult to artificial propagation, in order to find the bat E alternatives, the experts began the long process of trial, and now they use insect pupae do host, handing the Cordyceps militaris and its various indicators are comparable to wild Cordyceps sinensis, the film will detail how the artificial planting of Cordyceps militaris.

Reporter Tracking: North Cordyceps on the table

说起虫草,许多人都会想到冬虫夏草。由于资源稀少,再加上国内外市场需求逐渐增大,因此冬虫夏草价格越来越昂贵。而近几年,随着我国许多北方地区种植量的增加,以及人们对食用菌营养的认识,一种较新鲜的食用菌——北虫草逐渐普及开来。以往很难在餐厅看到它的身影,现在,它已经很频繁地出现在我们日常的餐桌上,成了一道食用菌特色菜肴。北虫草是北冬虫草的简称,也叫蛹虫草或蛹草,是一种名贵的药用真菌。长5~8公分,金黄、桔黄色,长得小巧可爱。北虫草还有一个很好听的名字就是虫草花,它和野生并且很难人工培育的虫草不同,当它这几年频频出现在我们的餐桌上时,竟然有很多人一时说不上它的名字,更不能说清它的来历了。顾名思义,许多人会以为它是虫草的花,而事实却是,它是由虫草家族的蛹虫草发展而来,在培养皿中成长的一种真菌。简单来说,它是人工的蛹虫草子实体。北虫草不仅含有丰富的蛋白质和氨基酸,而且含有30多种人体所需的微量元素,它主要生长在我国的北方地区,在山东省济南市,这种食用菌也被规模种植,当地依托较强的技术和生产实力使北虫草全年都可以出产,年产鲜北虫草300万瓶,成为华东地区较大的现代化繁育基地。过去,这种北虫草一斤要卖到一千多元,产量也很低,主要在广州、上海、北京等地才能见到这种食材,而现在随着它产量的增加,一斤干品只要一百到三百多元,许多中小城市也开始广泛食用起了北虫草。它的吃法也从过去较为单一的“以干品来炖汤”变为更多种烹饪方式,比如:金草紫薯泥、水晶金虫草、金草脆菇生菜包、碧绿金草鲍鱼卷、蟹黄焗虫草花、虫草花酥炸天妇罗配抹茶盐、金虫草炒鱼翅等等。本片将就北虫草这一特色食用菌的生产、当地对这种特色产品加工业的扶持,以及它的消费现状做一市场调查,以此促进生产,带动消费。

Speaking of caterpillar fungus, Cordyceps sinensis many people think. Due to resource scarcity, coupled with gradually increasing domestic and international market demand, therefore more expensive price of Cordyceps sinensis. In recent years, with many of our increase in cultivation in northern areas, and people's understanding of mushroom nutrition, a more fresh edible fungus - Cordyceps growing popularity of open.
