Mushroom Extract Powders
Mushroom mycelial extract are a highly potent mushroom “superfood” that is stronger than extracts derived from caps alone. Mycelium are the start of the fruiting bodies of the actual mushroom. You can think of mycelium as the “root” from which the body of the mushroom grows, and is generally known to be more potent than the mushroom caps themselves. Our cultivation and extraction process focuses on capturing this highly potent mycelium (although powdered caps will be present in small amounts as well).
Our extracts contain no fillers and are rich in polysaccharides, arabinoxylans, and triterpenes. Beneficial compounds are already made available by the extraction process, so you can simply add the powder to food or drink for an effective medicinal dose. Cooking with mushroom powder will not alter or hinder its potency so it may be added to soups, sauces, yogurt, smoothies, juices, or anything else you are already eating or drinking.
Please note that the overall appearance of mycelium is very consistent from species to species so there are only subtle differences in color and flavor between species.

There's a lot of misunderstanding and negative messaging in the mushroom industry about the use of mycelium because of the substrate required to grow it. However, there is a fundamental difference between a SUBSTRATE and a FILLER.
