How are the mushrooms grown?

Our organic mushrooms are grown through a full spectrum life-cycle including myceliated biomass and fruit bodies. After cooling, the sterilised oats are inoculated with the pure and proprietary mushroom strains and are sealed in engineered “bioreactor” growing bags equipped with air filters to exclude airborne contamination and to allow the mushroom cultures to ”breathe” during the controlled incubation/fermentation period.  

The growing facility is equipped with High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration utilising aseptic, cleanroom Solid State Fermentation production methodologies.  Processing (dehydration, milling, blending) and packaging are also done in a building equipped with HEPA air filtration using documented cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) compliant procedures.

The mushrooms are carefully dehydrated at low temperatures to retain all enzymatic activity. In addition, UV light is used to increase naturally occurring Vitamin D. The result is a whole, raw food, gluten-free, non-GMO product with naturally occurring antioxidants and other vital nutrients. The facility is Certified 100% Organic and conforms to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). This ensures the highest quality and efficacy.

Where do you grow your mushrooms?

Our mushrooms are grown and processed in California then packaged in the United Kingdom all within Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) facilities.

Do the mushrooms contain preservatives or colourings?

None of our products contain any preservatives or colourings.

Are the mushrooms suitable for taking during pregnancy or nursing?

Please contact your Healthcare Practitioner should you be pregnant or nursing.

Is the mushroom powder flavoured?

How much mushroom powder should I use?

Please read the product label for advice on how much of the mushroom powder to take. Alternatively, consult your Healthcare Practitioner.

Should I take the powder with food?

It is not necessary to mix our mushroom powder with food. However, mushroom powders may be more palatable when mixed with milk, yoghurt or smoothies. Our mushroom powders should not be mixed with citrus fruit juice.

Are there any other ingredients added to the mushroom powder?
